Principal's Welcome

I am passionate about our students

At Warrnambool West Primary School the staff and I are passionate about our profession and strive to provide the very best educational environment and experiences for all students and their families. At Warrnambool West Primary School, we promote a friendly, caring and challenging learning environment that encourages all students to take a growing responsibility for their own learning and behaviour.

In partnership with home and the community we aim to develop students who are self-reliant, resilient and hard working. Our overall school vision is ‘to develop lifelong learners who are engaged with their community’. By developing lifelong learners we aim to create students who value voluntary ongoing learning and who are self-motivated in their pursuit of knowledge throughout their entire lives. We do this by being safe, supportive and inclusive.

If you seek an active learning environment where your child is educated, cared for and supported as an individual, rather than simply a ‘name on a list’, please contact us. I look forward to meeting you and your family and discussing your needs.

Best wishes,

Mr Phil Barnes
