Principal’s welcome

Message from the principal
Thank you for choosing Kawungan State School as the provider of your child’s education.  We sincerely welcome you and your family to our school and trust that this school will meet your child’s individual and unique needs. Our school motto – “Helping each other achieve excellence” sets the benchmark for a school culture that holds aspirations for every student to achieve to their potential.
The school is set on spacious grounds in leafy Kawungan, just a few minutes from the beautiful beaches and surrounds of Hervey Bay. Our school has a strong presence in the broader Hervey Bay community and has a well-earned reputation for making significant contributions through our academic, musical, sporting and cultural programs.
Our teachers focus on delivering the Australian Curriculum in an innovative and differentiated manner across all domains of learning. Students are supported in their learning through an environment that values the uniqueness of each individual and, where student wellbeing is held in high importance.
2018 is the year of innovation at Kawungan State School. This focus sees us preparing our students with the knowledge, skills and confidence to participate successfully in the community and economy. We are achieving this through our explicit improvement agenda focusing on Reading, Writing and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
We are very proud of the outstanding music program on offer at Kawungan State School. Our program is recognised for excellence both within and beyond the school community, enabling students to regularly participate in competitions and showcase their talents in a variety of forums. Our music offerings include Class Music, Instrumental Music and a Choral Program.
The school is supported by a very cohesive, innovative and passionate P&C. The P&C coordinates our tuckshop as well as operates a uniform shop within the school grounds. The P&C meet on the second Monday of every month at 6:30pm in the library, and are always welcoming of new members who are passionate about making positive contributions to our school community.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family the very best for upcoming school year.
Kind Regards,
Mark Jones
