Lathlain Primary School is a Level 5 school situated in the south metropolitan education region. It services the needs of students in the Victoria Park Town 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.

Term 2 2020

Dear Parents and Caregivers

Term 2 has just begun and there have been changes implemented by the Department of Education relating to school attendance for Term 2. Detailed information can be obtained from the COVID-19 update on this website.

The ‘Lathlain Primary School Online Learning Plan’ tile provides information about online learning for students at home provided by your child’s teacher.

Students who attend school will be provided with face to face teaching which will incorporate work produced for the online platform. This will ensure consistency of the teaching program.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility during this time.

Kind regards
