Welcome to Cobains P.S. Website

Cobains Primary School has been serving our local community since 1928 by providing high quality teaching and learning programs. Our school is committed to catering for the needs of every child in reaching their academic, social and physical potential in a safe and engaging environment.
Our purpose is to promote integrity, life-long learning practices and the attainment of excellence through the commitment of continuous improvement. We have a strong sense of community where the quality of relationships which are developed between parents, students, staff and the wider community assists students to be responsible learners, develop their self esteem, increase in confidence, care for others, and connect to their community. 


Our Values

Cobains Primary School pride itself on teaching the values that we want for our future 

Our motto is 'Aiming High' which is an expectation we have for all staff, parents and students in our School community.

The three key values that we undertake at Cobains Primary School are:

Accept Responsibility for your own learning & behaviour, and accept that everyone is different.
Respect That everyone has the right to feel safe and be valued in every learning environment whilst at school.
Try Your Best Pursue personal excellence in all areas. 

These values are displayed and discussed in every classroom. They are promoted in weekly newsletters and assemblies, and are shared between students, parents and teachers.

Student Encouragement & Rewards

Students are supported and encouraged to do their best and are rewarded for great effort through:


Parent & Community Involvement
