Lathlain Primary School is an Independent Public School situated in the South Metropolitan Education Region. It services the needs of students in the Town of Victoria Park suburb of Lathlain. The school is located on the corner of Howick St and Keyes St with an additional entrance from Waller St. It is walking distance to the parklands of the Swan River and Burswood Park.

Lathlain Primary School caters for students in Kindergarten to Year Six and provides academic, social, physical and emotional well-being for our students. Our staff work with parents, carers and families to maximise opportunities for each student to reach their potential. These relationships are valued and are important partnerships that support a positive and nurturing learning environment.

Our motto of Seek, Strive and Learn is important in fostering the values and virtues taught by class teachers and these are supported by our awards recognition programs. Our students demonstrate our values and virtues across the learning community.


Lathlain Primary School will continue to be open with precautions in place to keep our students and staff safe.

The Department is working closely with the Department of Health, particularly Dr Andrew Robertson, the WA Chief Health Officer. We will continue to follow their expert advice.
State Premiers and Chief Ministers agreed that at this time schools will remain open through to the end of the current school term to support students whose parents choose to send them to school.
