Student arrangements for pick up and drop off
Parents are reminded that ANY changes to student pick-up or drop-off arrangements need to be communicated by the parent or caregiver via the student diary, SMS (0437 416 596), email (tammin.ps@education.wa.edu.au) or the office.
We understand that plans do change but we cannot accept the word of students to change pick-up/home time arrangements or bus changes. 
We can no longer accept requests from parents or caregivers changing the pick-up arrangements or bus changes for children other than their own.
If there is no written or verbal communication from a parent or caregiver changing arrangements for their own children then:

  • Bus children will be sent home on the bus as usual.
  • All other children will be kept in the school office until their parent or caregiver has been contacted.

It is the responsibility of the parent or caregiver to notify the bus driver of any changes to bus pick-up or drop-off.

As there is not always supervision for students before 8:30am we request that students are not dropped off at school before this time in the mornings.
All students arriving before 8:30am report to the office.



Tammin Primary School is a Level 3 Department of Education and Training institute located within the Wheatbelt Education District 180 kilometres east of Perth. The school was established in its current location in 1969 and first commenced in 1900. The school has experienced an average enrolment of 60 over the past five years with students from Kindergarten to Year 6 and is proud of its friendly, caring and relaxed atmosphere. The majority of our school's population live on wheat and sheep farming properties that are serviced daily by two school bus routes running north and south of Great Eastern Highway.

Our vision and mission at Tammin Primary School is to ensure our students achieve positive social and academic skills and knowledge with high expectations of achievement by:

  • Showing RESPECT for all;
  • Strengthening feelings of SELF-WORTH through INCLUSIVE practices;
  • Promoting RESILIENT behaviours (withstanding or recover quickly from difficult conditions);
  • Providing a MOTIVATING and STIMULATING learning and work environment;
  • COLLABORATING between parents, students and staff.
  • COMMUNICATING positively and CONSTRUCTIVELY with others;

Our mission is to INSPIRE others to become RESOURCEFUL and INFORMED citizens who CONTRIBUTE POSITIVELY to a changing world.

The school seeks to provide an educational program that caters for a broad spectrum of abilities, needs and interests of students and to have strong links with parents and the community.





Some school uniforms, including second hand items, are sold through the Cooinda Centre. Opening hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am to 3pm. Closed during school holidays. Alternatively seasonal orders are placed by uniform coordinator Tanya Nicholls. An order can be placed by printing out an order form and emailing to UNIFORMS or sending in to the office. Orders can then be picked up at your leisure.


All parents and visitors to the school, please report to the front office and sign the register, then as you leave , sign out. This is important so in case of emergency we are fully aware of who is on school grounds.
