Welcome to our school

Takari is an Aboriginal word meaning ‘tomorrow’ (or ‘future’) .

Takari Primary School looks to develop tomorrow’s leaders.

Established in 1969, Takari is located in the northern suburbs of Perth in the Balcatta area. We cater for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. With an approximate population of 200 students, we are a small school where every child is known and valued. The Takari staff is committed to providing a supportive, safe and nurturing environment to all our students.

Our school prides itself on being culturally diverse. Our students are encouraged to celebrate differences and welcome others into the school community. The majority of our students are Australian however 30% of our students’ families originated from Europe, the Middle East, Asia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

The school has a strong academic focus and offers specialist programs in Music, Science, Physical Education and Languages (Italian).

Staff are motivated and dedicated to providing an environment where students are both supported and challenged to achieve their full potential.

Parents and the school community are valued partners at Takari and continue to provide support to staff and students, guaranteeing a vibrant learning community.
