About Us

Principal’s Welcome

 

Welcome to Kingston Heath Primary School!

Kingston Heath Primary School offers students a caring and nurturing learning environment. Our dedicated and experienced staff provide a challenging and engaging program, which focuses on appreciating the individual needs and interests of every child.

Our school vision states that:

At Kingston Heath Primary School, a quality learning environment gives students, staff and the community confidence to strive for excellence as active and positive members of a global village.

We can’t do this alone. It is a joint responsibility of students, staff, parents and the community, to work in partnership towards the collective success for all. When the community works together for a common purpose, greatness can be achieved.

Our students are provided with an extensive curriculum with the focus on the needs of the individual child, in a collaborative and cooperative environment. Specialist programs consist of Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Physical Education and Italian. These programs enrich the curriculum, which is developed to deliver the best possible outcomes for all students in a safe, caring and nurturing environment. The academic growth and well-being of all students is our focus.

We are unique in our area as we offer an international curriculum through the International Baccalaureate’s Primary Years Program (PYP) and we are a member of the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program (SAKGP). Our spacious grounds cater for a range of recreational activities from active to passive play; there is space for everyone! Our lunchtime clubs program supports student’s wellbeing and promotes engagement for all.

Our website provides you with a general overview of what Kingston Heath Primary School has to offer, including curriculum, policies and programs.

I invite you to contact the school if you wish to learn more or arrange a school tour.

Our School Pledge

Students, staff and parents commit to the school’s pledge at Monday afternoon’s assembly each week.

 

I am proud to be an Australian.

I respect Kingston Heath Primary School as a place to learn and grow,

By being honest, trustworthy and fair to all I know,

To show friendship and kindness to all I meet,

Through co-operation, having fun and working hard each day of the week.

I will strive to be the best I can be, so that we all can succeed in our school family.

 

The pledge is an important part of our school and was developed in co-operation with the principal, the Junior School Council, the students, staff and the parents.
