Welcome to our beautiful school

Nestled in a quiet residential area, enjoying sweeping ocean views, Kapinara Primary School is thought to have taken its name from a combination of two Aboriginal words from the Nyungar translation.  ‘Kapi’ meaning ‘water’ and ‘nara’ meaning referring to cupping of water in the hands, or the presence of a waterhole.  Located in the beachside suburb of City Beach, a fifteen minute drive from Perth city, Kapinara Primary School first opened in 1967. We cater for students from Kindergarten to Year 6.

Our school vision

“We strive to develop resilient children who treat themselves and others with respect, love learning, behave with integrity and think critically and creatively”.

This captures what staff and our school community believe to be fundamental to everything we do. While fostering high standards of student achievement, Kapinara Primary School also provides a broad range of cross curricula programs, and places a strong emphasis on the positive health and wellbeing of students, staff and the broader community.
