Our Lady of Mercy Primary School


School Description

Our Lady of Mercy is a double stream, co-educational Catholic primary school catering for students from Kindergarten – Year 6. Our school boasts beautiful children, strong community support, and a committed staff. At Our Lady of Mercy we strive to provide a caring environment where children can grow to their full potential.

Our Lady of Mercy Primary School operates under one Teaching and Learning Philosophy to ensure consistency in all subject areas. The school has a heavy focus on Explicit Direct Instruction in the core areas of English and Mathematics, supported by some whole school Direct Instruction programs. An Inquiry approach with an integrated curriculum program is highly encouraged in the learning area of HASS and other associated science and humanities subjects. All content taught aligns to the Western Australian Curriculum and teachers must use the school curriculum maps to design teaching and learning programs in English and Mathematics. We have specialist teachers in the areas of Music, Science, Physical Education and AUSLAN.

Intervention programs in the Junior grades for English include; Prelit, Minilit and Reading Recovery. The intervention program Macqlit is used in middle to upper grades.
