I firmly believe that educating children is a privilege. As educators we are extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to influence the futures of the children we teach. Our staff are skilled, dedicated, caring and motivated. We believe in the importance of team work as an essential component of the successful delivery of education.
Our school vision is Every student, in class, learning. We are committed to delivering inclusive, engaging, authentic learning opportunities which provide our students with the knowledge, skills and confidence to reach their potential.
Our mission is Collaborate • Innovate • Elevate • Celebrate. At our school teaching and learning is our priority. Through collaborative processes and innovative practices we progress student achievement and celebrate success across the curriculum. We recognise the importance positive relationships have on ensuring educational success and are committed to the development of the whole child, inclusive of their cognitive, creative, physical, and social emotional development.
We believe strong school values positively impact students' self-esteem, optimism and commitment to personal fulfilment; and help students exercise ethical judgement and social responsibility. Across our school community there is an expectation that all members of our school community (students, staff and parents) are responsible for demonstrating each of our values which underpin everything we do.
- Teaching and learning is our priority

I encourage you to be an integral part of our caring school community as 2020 promises to be yet another exciting and productive year at Kingston State School.
