Commencing with Year 4s in 2018, the 1:1 device will change to an iPad.  Current year 4 and 5 students won’t be affected by this change of device, but will experience improvements to the use of devices as a learning tool in response to these other recommendations.

As a starting point, we have scheduled an information session to explain the decision making process and how the 1:1 Device Program will look from 2018. Parents / carers of all year level students are welcome to attend.

Please enrol in this information session from the following link:

More information is available on the 1:1 Device Program webpage located at:

Winthrop Primary School celebrated 10 years participating in Water Corporation’s Waterwise Schools Program at a special assembly.

Over the last decade, teachers at the school have been educating students about the need to value, protect and conserve water resources.

Water Corporation General Manager Customer and Community Group, Catherine Ferrari, thanked the school for sharing the Waterwise message.

“In our drying climate it’s important the next generation are aware of how precious water is and Winthrop Primary School has been sharing this message for 10 years,” Ms Ferrari said.

"Students are the water users of the future, so it is vital teachers continue to educate students about the value of water.  Thank you to students and teachers at Winthrop Primary School for your dedication to the program.”

Winthrop Primary School’s Waterwise Coordinator, Katy Moriarty, said as a result of the program the students have become aware of the value of water in the environment.

“Our Science program has a strong focus on water, and students have been learning about water sources, treatment and supply, as well as the need to conserve this precious resource,” Mrs Moriarty said.

The Waterwise Schools Program takes a long-term approach to water education and behavioural change, and complements the curriculum across all major learning areas.

Painted rocks - a little way of showing kindness and spreading happiness to others.

Mrs Moriarty's Year 1 class had a fun and successful morning of rock painting and decorating. The students were happy to give away some of their painted rocks to be hidden at Fiona Stanley Hospital gardens so that the children who need to stay at the hospital can have a chance to find them. 

How can a rock like that make anyone happy?

Well, it takes a little effort. First, someone has to paint and decorate the rocks. Sometimes just bright colours, patterns, pictures or words like Smile, Be Brave or Love.

Then, someone has to "hide" it where someone else can find it. And by hide we mean put it somewhere where you'll see it, but don't expect it. A bench. A shelf. The planter outside.

When you are out and about … keep your eyes open for a flash of colour… a rock could be ANYWHERE… If you find one…you can KEEP it or re-hide it for someone else to find…


The idea is to spread a little joy and to promote random acts of kindness…BRING A SMILE TO SOMEONE...
