School spirit is built on the traditions of the past but also depends on the commitment and teamwork of all current members of the school community. As teachers, parents and students it is important for us all to realise that we all have a significant role to play in supporting and promoting the positive ethos evident at Armadale Primary School.
Our purpose is to ensure that all Armadale Primary School students develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to achieve their individual potential and contribute to society.
In 2006 the school community was consulted and asked to make suggestions for our school motto. We were looking for the strengths and values that best described our school. We believe our school motto of Attitude, Persistence, Success accurately represents all at Armadale Primary School.
