Welcome to Port Kennedy Primary School.
It is a privilege to be the principal of such a dynamic school where our students continue to ‘Strive for Excellence.’
At Port Kennedy Primary School, we believe that ‘every child should be given the opportunities to be their best and achieve personal excellence’. We foster a deep sense of responsibility for student learning through strong collaborative relationships built on mutual trust and respect. Students will strive to achieve their goals, learn from their experiences and develop into resilient active citizens, who see themselves as life long learners.
Our staff are committed educators who are passionate about meeting the needs of the whole child. We work in collaboration with parents as partners, to provide a holistic approach to education and we believe that every child can learn, achieve and have success. Our teachers deliver high quality teaching and learning experiences for students that cultivates high performance and high engagement.
Our positive culture is embedded in our Positive Behaviour Support program and embodies the values of Be Respectful, Be Resilient, Be Responsible and Be Your Best. This has contributed to the positive and friendly tone of our school.
Capitalising on these attributes, our school develops our senior students through our leadership programs.
These programs provide opportunities for our students to practise and develop their leadership skills throughout the year including assemblies, sports carnivals and welcoming new students to the school.
Port Kennedy Primary School enjoys the wonderful support from our community. The School Board is instrumental in our strategic development and assists in planning and priorities, and setting future directions.
The P&C continues to contribute in assisting the school to be well-resourced and creates opportunities through community events to further build our strong collaborative partnerships with the broader community.
I encourage our families to engage, interact with staff, and experience what a wonderful school their children attend.
