All the students at WPS live on farms and travel to school on a bus each day. The school intends to improve the students skill, fitness, knowledge and safety about bike riding. We have been generously supported by the City of Albany who have provided us with two days of bike education.

Wellstead is a community situated 100 kilometres east of Albany and within the Albany city boundary. Wellstead is a friendly and vibrant place to live and to visit. The town site consists of a store/post office/petrol outlet, Community Resource Centre, mechanical workshop and residential houses. There is a community hall and a large community oval which is used for cricket. It is approximately 18 kms to Cape Riche where fishing, swimming and beach studies form a natural part of its school's curriculum. The school opened as the Cape Riche Primary School in June 1965. The original school was housed in a timber framed fibro building. This was replaced with the main building (brick construction) in 1978 and extensions were added during 1985. A demountable classroom was installed at the school site during 1993. It was modified for the introduction of the five year old students' program. In 1996, a brick under cover area was added and the school oval was extended to one hectare in 1997 and is surrounded by natural bush land. During 2001, a new administration office was added to the school. The teaching staff provide a variety of learning experiences for students in multi-age grouped classes. The school is well served by a cleaner, a gardener/handy person, registrar, library officer and a teacher assistant. The parents and community are actively involved in the operations of the school. Most have lived in the region for a number of years and are involved in cereal cropping, sheep, cattle, wildflower farming and tree plantations. Most of the students live on farms and travel to school by bus. They are well behaved, responsive and regular attenders. After they complete their schooling in Wellstead, students attend secondary school in Albany, Jerramungup or in Perth.
