Our school

Welcome to Kawungan State School.

 

The staff, parents and students associated with this school welcome you into the school community. Kawungan State School was established in 1991 and now sits in spacious, attractive and well-maintained grounds. The school is fortunate in being able to provide modern classrooms with up-to-date resources and facilities. Kawungan State School is a co-educational campus offering a range of learning experiences for a wide variety of students in primary school working collaboratively with a special education unit. Together, these learning experiences support staff and students in achieving the best educational outcomes for every student attending Kawungan State School.

The delivery of a quality curriculum is a driving force at Kawungan State School which is achieved through the foundation of a developmental approach to literacy, numeracy, thinking and research skills. A 'values framework' underpins all curriculum offerings. Students are provided with quality learning experiences in all facets of the curriculum which are further enhanced by other educational activities such as sport, music, public speaking, camps and environmental awareness.

Information technology is an integrating learning tool that sits behind our quality curriculum. Students are provided with access to the world beyond the classroom walls through the internet, email and various computer programs providing for inclusion and manipulation of digital imagery.

Kawungan State School is proud of its productive partnerships between parents/caregivers, teachers and students as well as with the local community. These partnerships reinforce our supportive school environment where all members of the Kawungan community work and learn together in the spirit of life-long learning in a safe, happy, courteous and friendly environment.

The attribute of care is central to our school's operation. Our Behaviour Management Policy is supported by the notion, "Be safe, be responsible, be respectful....I have no right to spoil another person's day".

The school motto best summarizes the philosophy of Kawungan State School: 'Helping each other achieve excellence'.

Together we will continue to strive for excellence in all that we do.
