SDPS maintains a partnership with Curtin University's schools of Social Work and Occupational Therapy. 


2022 sees SDPS welcome two new Curtin University Social Work students:



Programs Curtin Esther

Hi, my name is Esther and I’m a Social Work student from Curtin University, currently in my third year of study. I’m excited to be doing my Social Work placement at Sutherland Dianella PS and I am looking forward to meeting everyone. I am an approachable person, passionate about supporting people to reach their goals and I'm ready to help.

My role will be working alongside the school to create learning opportunities for students. This will be done through the social work lens of working with students holistically to promote their wellbeing.



Programs Curtin Arabella

Hello, Sutherland Dianella Primary School.  My name is Arabella, and I am your Social Work student for the next fifteen weeks. I am in my third year at Curtin University. I am a very friendly, enthusiastic, and motivated person.

My role at Sutherland Dianella Primary School will be supporting the wellbeing of the school community through assisting teachers in classrooms, participating in whole school events, and supporting students. I am excited to get to know the whole Sutherland Dianella community.
