The Quairading Playgroup caters for 0-4 year olds who meet (along with their parents/carers) each Monday morning in what was the purpose built Kindergarten building on Murphy Street. This ensures children have a safe play environment to interact with other children at an early age. It’s also a much appreciated outing for parents for young children.

We welcome everyone to come along. Bring along your child/children for some fun. All you need is a hat and a small piece of fruit to share.

Quairading District High School is located in the small Wheatbelt town of Quairading, about two hours east of Perth. We specialise in teaching students from K to 12 with approximately 150 students, our school is a little bit like a village. Our students and staff enjoy being part of a community, everybody knows your name, every person is valued and we all share a sense of belonging. Achievements are celebrated as a community and support and care is offered when needed.

Our school is surrounded by well cared for grounds and gardens which are actively supported by the P&C Grounds Committee. Our school has 10 classrooms, together with specialised rooms for IT, Science, Music, Manual Arts, Visual Arts, Home Economics and a well resourced Library. We have a purpose-build, wonderfully equipped on-site Kindergarten and Pre-Primary centre. We also have a covered assembly area, basketball and tennis courts, play equipment areas, walk-through native garden and large grassed oval.

Quairading DHS and the Quairading district as a whole is proud of its welcoming and supportive Q spirit. Based on the ideas of integrity and inclusivity, students, staff, parents and community members alike, interact and work with each other to ensure the prosperity and success of Quairading. Our students are an integral part of the local community.

Quairading Toy Library has a treasure trove of toys and paraphernalia catering primarily for 0-5 year olds, but also with a few treasures for our big kids. Being a part of a toy library is a fantastic opportunity to use a huge range of toys without having to purchase them and store them or to enable you to try before you buy.

The Toy Library operates by paying a small membership fee of $40 per year which allows its members to borrow toys on a fortnightly basis throughout the whole year. Currently we don’t have a roster, but operate on a serve yourself basis on our operating days, which have just changed to 9am every second Monday. Our only expectation of members is that they clean their own toys on return and once a year participate in a stock take, maintenance and clean of the toys.

Feel free to phone an office bearer to check dates. There is also a Facebook page for members.

We would like to invite you to come down and meet our committee and have a look at some of the wonderful big and small toys that we have on offer.


The Youth Centre is located opposite the school on the corner of Cubbine Road and Murphy Street. For more information please contact the Youth Services Officer via the Shire of Quairading on 9645 2400 or email
