Principal's message 2017


Welcome to Kilberry Valley Primary School.

If you are enquiring about our wonderful school I hope the website gives you the information you require. If you wish to know anything else please do not hesitate to contact the school office for an appointment on 97028688.

 

 

With an enrolment of approximately 800 students, the Kilberry Valley Primary School community creates a very caring and stimulating environment in which you and your child can become involved. Please navigate your way through the website to see the wonderful programs and opportunities that are offered at Kilberry Valley Primary School. We also have a virtual tour available on our website to give you a glimpse of some of our programs and facilities. You can also use the ''Translation' button that is available on each page of the website, if English is not your preferred language.


 

Our school's vision of

 'Developing Responsible Learners For a Changing Society' 

is at the forefront of everything we do. Our values of respect, responsibility, tolerance, honesty, trust and diversity 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.

 

 

 

As our school moto states, our staff strive daily to

 

‘Make THE Difference’

 

to meet the needs of every student.

 

 

 


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.


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.

 

2017 will be an exciting year as we implement the first year of our new Strategic Plan. A comprehensive school review late 2016 devised the following goals for our next four years:

 

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.

 

We look forward to an exciting year ahead!

 

Have a great day and keep smiling!
