Kurri Kurri Public School
Kurri Kurri Public School is a large regional school, which services a diverse community, qualifying for Low SES National Partnerships funding in 2011. As an active partner in the Kurri Kurri Learning Community, we have a long and proud history of providing outstanding education, with a K to 12 focus, to our local community. We enjoy strong community support with many volunteers supporting our programs. We have developed an innovative Career Education program, which recently received a Director General's Award. The program supports students to engage in learning by understanding the world of work through integrated activities, learning to set achievable goals and participating in Career Fun days and visits to TAFE and University. We are committed to developing responsible citizens and lifelong learners in a caring learning environment. We provide a range of highly regarded sporting, cultural and academic programs that enable all students to participate and achieve great personal results. Our students compete in a range of team sports, with an Active After School Sport program operating 3 afternoons per week. Our students participate in a range of performance activities including The Hunter Dance Festival, Edfest, public speaking and debating. All of our teachers are highly qualified. Specialist teachers cater for the specific needs of the students with disabilities in our 3 support classes. In addition, we support learning through other targeted programs, such as, Reading Recovery, Quicksmart Maths, L3 and Best Start, Gifted and Talented programs and Personalised Learning Plans for all Aboriginal students. Our enthusiastic teaching staff is committed to maximising learning outcomes for all students by providing engaging, 21st Century learning experiences in a stimulating environment. All classrooms have Interactive Whiteboard access for teaching and learning. Our technology teacher provides opportunities for students to develop their skills across all KLAs in our dedicated technology and research centre. Our students feel safe and comfortable in our well organised infants and primary playground areas, where organised games are set up daily to enable all students to participate happily. Lunchtime activities include library, computers, 3 fixed equipment areas, a basketball court, handball areas, grassed areas, 4 large COLAs, sports equipment and 3 large sandpits. Together we are building a school culture that reflects the values of Respect, Responsibility, Care, Fairness, Doing Your Best and Honesty through strong and inclusive student welfare and learning programs that support students to achieve their goals in learning and life.
