Timor Primary School was established during the Gold Rush period of 1873. The main school building has significant historical importance to the local community and continues to be used effectively as classrooms and learning space today.

The school is one of 20 schools in the Goldfields Network in the North-Western Region. There are two multi-age classrooms consisting of a Junior class (P/1/2) and Senior class (3/4/5/6). At census there were 37 students enrolled at Timor PS which has a low socio-economic profile. The school is proud of the diversity of its curriculum including the specialist areas of French, Music, Art, Science and Physical Education. The school has 7.14 equivalent full time staff: 1 Principal class, 4.0 teacher class and 2.14 Education Support staff.

2012 was the first full year of our new strategic plan which contains a strong emphasis on raising academic achievement across all learning areas, but with a specific focus on the Literacy and Numeracy. In the first year of the SSP a National Partnerships Funding was obtained and a literacy coach employed to assist students and staff in further developing their skills. A review of the Strategic plan is underway in 2015 guiding the development of the next strategic plan for 2016-2018.

A major focus for students at Timor Primary is to develop a caring and nurturing attitude towards their peers. The 'Restorative Practice Philosophy' is used in building student relationships. We regularly have whole school activities that enable students to interact positively with each other, developing strong friendships and building on cooperative learning skills. The ‘You Can Do It’ Program scaffolds student understandings and provides students with the opportunity to establish life-long skills to achieve success.
