Our History


Woodlupine Primary School is located in Forrestfield and caters for students in Kindergarten to Year 6. Woodlupine Primary School derives its name from Woodlupine Creek which was named by colonial British settlers in recognition of the heavily treed woods and an abundance of lupin flowers.

The school motto Learning through life is embedded in our approach to learning and teaching and we hold true to a core belief that every child can experience success.

In 2015 during NAIDOC week, the school was renewed with a ceremony led by Elders of the Noongar people, who smoked the school and renamed the teaching blocks to reflect the seasons of the traditional owners. Concurrently a new school logo was commissioned. This led to our abstract design of the Echidna, which is the spiritual totem of the Noongar people of the Darling Scarp, whilst retaining the Lupin Flowers of the original school shield as the echidna's quills.

In 2019 we opened Harmony Creek, an outdoor learning space where children can engage with plants that were used by the Noongar people for food or their medicinal properties.
