Woodlupine Primary School is located in Forrestfield and caters for students in Kindergarten to Year 6. Woodlupine Primary School derives its name from Woodlupine Creek which was named by colonial British settlers in recognition of the heavily treed woods and an abundance of lupin flowers.
The school motto Learning through life is embedded in our approach to learning and teaching and we hold true to a core belief that every child can experience success. Positive values and a good attitude to learning are promoted through our whole school delivery of PATHS, (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies) from Kindergarten to Year 6. Our interpersonal relationships are kept positive and rewarding by whole school use of Restorative Practices. Through engagement with restorative processes we have encouraged a culture based upon trust, mutual respect and regard for the rights and diversity of others in our community.
In 2015 during NAIDOC week, the school was renewed with a ceremony led by Elders of the Nyoongar people, who smoked the school and renamed the teaching blocks to reflect the seasons of the traditional owners. Concurrently a new school logo was commissioned. This led to our abstract design of the Echidna, which is the spiritual totem of the Noongar people of the Darling Scarp, whilst retaining the Lupin Flowers of the original school shield as the echidna's quills.
