School Philosophy

As outlined in our Strategic Plan 2017 - 2020 Katunga Primary School has developed a shared moral purpose through consultation with teachers, parents and the children at the school. The aim of the statement is to articulate shared goals, values and a vision for the school.

Katunga Primary School recognises the individuality of every person with regard to their personalities, learning needs and learning styles.

Every person will be given the opportunity to develop their potential through high levels of engagement and the highest quality teaching and learning programs.

We will develop the individual to become life-long learners and to be valuable members of, and contributors to, their communities and society.

The values of the school are presented to the children through the Katunga Kids are Friendly Kids, Mindfulness and Building Resilience programs.

The principles of the Katunga Kids are Friendly Kids promote Courtesy, Respect, Cooperation and Responsibility whereas the Building Resilience program teaches resilience, teamwork and cooperative skills through a variety of games and role plays.  All of these values and expectations are reinforced on an ongoing basis.

The teachers include components of both of these programs in their weekly timetables.

It is a requirement of all teachers to complete 30 minutes of explicit teaching each week on the topic for the week from The Katunga Kids are Friendly Kids program.

The teachers also act as role models around the school and they are expected to display and demonstrate the values outlined above.
