Welcome to Larrakeyah Primary School
"Right to Shine"
Larrakeyah Primary School enjoys an excellent reputation in the community. We are situated near the heart of Darwin and have a student population of approximately 340. We are one of the older schools in Darwin, having first opened our doors in 1963. The school was relocated to the old Darwin Hospital at Myilly Point during rebuilding following Cyclone Tracy, and reopened in 1985.
School enrolments reflect the demographics of the city area. The school is adjacent to the Larrakeyah Barracks and many of our families are with the Defence Forces. Numerous nationalities are represented. There are two Aboriginal Hostels in the area, providing accommodation for families from outlying communities, and these too contribute to the mobility and cultural diversity of our population.
Larrakeyah School’s logo incorporates the Emery Point Lighthouse. This lighthouse is located in the Larrakeyah Barracks and has been important to safe navigation of many boats since 1900. Hence the school motto, "Right to Shine".
Larrakeyah Primary School Mission: Our mission is to provide a positive and supportive learning environment that encourages students to strive for high academic success. We aim to instil a desire for life-long learning and to promote leadership and responsible citizenship.
Larrakeyah Primary School is currently implementing the Priority Enrolment Policy. We currently are accepting enrolments from students who reside within our priority enrolment area - Larrakeyah, Cullen Bay, The Gardens and Darwin City.
