Our school's vision of

 

 'Developing Responsible Learners For a Changing Society' 

is at the forefront of everything we do.

 

Our values of Respect, Integrity, Accountability, Responsiveness, Impartiality, Leadership and Human Rights ensure we are continually developing our students with a sense of their own place in our community and the responsibility they hold to be a positive and effective member who can make a difference to those around them.

 

2019 will see the value statements visible around the school and the students developing a sound knowledge of what these ‘look like’ I at Kilberry valley Primary School.

 

As our school moto states, our staff strive daily to

 

‘Make THE Difference’

 

to meet the needs of every student.

 

Making THE difference to a child, fellow staff member or member of our great school community is our staff’s aim everyday.

 


We have an extremely dedicated staff who work together to ensure a safe and encouraging environment for our students in which they can continually strive for excellence in all they do. Our strong focus on 'Restorative Practices' empowers our students to become problem solvers that positively contribute to our school community.

 

The daily focus on the ‘positives’ encouraging caring and responsible behaviours and habits, set the baseline for all our interactions between staff, students and the school community as a whole.

 

Effective and caring classroom programs are supported by exemplary specialist programs. Our high level of Digital Technologies, including our fully operational Film Studio, adds an exciting element to the way Kilberry Valley students discover new skills and excitement at school. The Spanish program is growing and this year includes students in Years 1 to 5.


Our culturally diverse school community, with representation from over 30 countries and students speaking a variety of different languages, ensures a community possessing many skills and experiences that also add to the opportunities that are presented to our students.

 

Our Current 2017 – 2020 Strategic Plan outlines our main school goals as being:

 

Student Learning

To optimise and accelerate the learning growth of every student in English, Mathematics and Science.

 

Student Engagement

To develop students who are curious, inquiring, creative, critical thinkers who are engaged in and connected to their learning.

 

Student Wellbeing

To develop resilient students, staff and school community members who display growth mindsets and behaviours and attitudes that reflect the school values.

 

If you are new to our school, we welcome you and look forward to forging a strong partnership for the benefit of your children.

 

We have an exciting year ahead!

 

Have a great day and keep smiling!
