Nulsen Primary School was established in 1972 as a Year 1 to 4 school. In 1974 the school expanded to become Year 1 to 6 and in the following year, 1975 became a Year 1 to 7 school. The name 'Nulsen' was given to the school after Mr Emil Nulsen who served as the MLA for the Esperance region from 1932-1962.  Emil Nulsen was noted for his sincerity and fair play with our school adopting these qualities and upholding these values.
