Progressive Independent School 3 & 4 Year Old Kindy to Year 6 Valuing Childhood Limited places for 2021

Why Moerlina? What makes us so unique?

Moerlina School celebrates more than 40 years of progressive primary education in the Western Suburbs of Perth. Classes are small, outcomes are high, original thought is valued, persistence is rewarded, play is important, the natural world is central and learning is meaningful in our unique city school.

At the heart of Moerlina School is a culture of collaboration, support and mutual respect. A sense of security and belonging allows students to take risks in their learning, to challenge themselves and to have high expectations for what they can achieve. Learning goes well beyond the classroom, with students often heading outdoors and off-site to explore new places and experience new things that are relevant to their studies, consolidating and expanding their knowledge and understanding of the world.
