Welcome to our website.

Calista School commenced in 1964 and consists of the primary school catering for Kindergarten through to Year 6 students. The school receives funding under the Commonwealth Literacy and Numeracy Programme and is also supported through the School Support Programmes Resource Allocation.

Calista Primary School is staffed with a Principal, two Deputy Principals and 15 class teachers. In addition there are 9 support teachers who undertake a number of instructional programmes in the school. Education Assistants also provide further support to teachers and students.

School Decision Making and consultation processes follow Department of Education guidelines in the form of a School Board and School Finance Committee.

Students come from the surrounding Kwinana catchment area with a range of family and cultural backgrounds.

The accommodation of the Primary School consists of 17 classrooms. Two rooms were converted into a Pre Primary Centre in 1998 for the establishment of a full-time 5 year old program and one is used as a Computer Centre. Three other rooms are utilised for Music, Health Education and an Art/Science/Cooking Facility.

The Kindy is now situated in a brand new purpose built building. This was opened at the start of 2011 and is within the school grounds, allowing students to access a wide range of resources.

There is also a library resource centre, administration area, canteen and a covered assembly area built during 1992. The library resource centre, staffroom and administration areas are air conditioned. All classrooms have evaporative air conditioning, gas heating and ceiling fans.

A new perimeter fence ensures safety and security. This blends well with a pleasant mix of natural and introduced vegetation. Throughout our well maintained grounds there are ample play areas with attractive and safe play equipment for children to use during break times.

Many parents are proud to say that they attended Calista as children and our steady enrolments over time indicate that there is a high degree of satisfaction with the school. There is a range of staff, from those who have been here for many years, to those just commencing their careers. This mix of experience and enthusiasm provides for excellent learning opportunities for our students.

We have a strong environmental focus, with community involvement in our 'Nesting Box' project, Ribbons of Blue, Water Wise Programme, Tree Planting and Air Watch. In 2005 the school won the ' Connections' prize at the WA Schools Environmental Education for Sustainability Awards.

Neighbourhood

The school has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere with strong support from parents through the P&C and a very dedicated staff. The principal welcomes parents and believes that strong relationships between the school and community are extremely important.

In 2011, the school accepted handover of a purpose built Music Room, Art Room, Pre Primary and Kindergarten.
