Department of Education Western Australia
We aim to deliver a high quality education to all students in all learning environments. We are committed to all students achieving their best and being lifelong learners who contribute actively to their communities and to society.

We have a role in influencing the education of all students in Western Australia and enact this in different ways in line with relevant legislation – directly through a system of public schools and indirectly through regulation and funding of Catholic and Independent schools.

Our strategic directions articulate the different approaches we adopt to achieve our objectives in the delivery of public school education.

We acknowledge and respect the traditional custodians of the lands and waters on which our students live and are educated throughout Western Australia.

We acknowledge and understand that Elders, parents, families and communities are the first educators of their children and we recognise and value the cultures and strengths that Aboriginal children bring to the classroom. Aboriginal people have a long tradition of teaching and learning through sharing their connections with country, community, language and culture, and through their oral histories, stories and lived experiences that are passed from generation to generation. We recognise and value the learning that Aboriginal children bring with them from their homes and communities into the classroom.
