Learning programs are designed to ensure each child has access to relevant experiences and that all children experience success. Children’s individual differences are taken into account and all children are encouraged to attempt new experiences by viewing errors as an opportunity to learn.

 

Staff endeavour to ensure learning is both enjoyable and meaningful. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning by being involved, not just in the learning phase, but also in the planning and evaluation of their performance.

A comprehensive and high quality educational program for all students is offered at Killara Primary School and we expect children to participate in all aspects of school life.
