Welcome to the website of Braeside Primary School, Katanning. 


As you navigate your way through the site discovering what we have to offer, you will find answers to the many preliminary questions you may have about our school, our programmes and student life. As the Principal of the school, I feel honoured and privileged to be part of an educational institution where every stakeholder is a learner and every day is an opportunity to learn and discover. We look at ourselves as a community of learners, where everyone learns including our teachers, parents & staff.

I believe in upholding high standards with an absolute commitment to strive to understand and improve the educational process, using team strategies, while wholly centering on student achievement.


Your child’s learning involves and revolves around an effective partnership between home & school. We know the stronger the partnership is, the more your child will benefit. Whilst we know that the information here will give you answers to some of your questions, we also know that learning is social, and in this context we encourage you to come and speak to us in person for a more detailed perspective. I look forward to working with you as we help create a school where parents are welcome at anytime, students are engaged in meaningful learning and the staff members are valued and appreciated for their efforts.



Mr Geoff MacNicol
