About Us - Principal's Welcome
Welcome to the Karratha Primary School website. This website provides an opportunity to strengthen the link between our school and our community by showcasing our learning programmes and the successes of our students, and sharing information about policies and procedures within the school. Our website is also a great way to share our school with the wider community of family and friends.
Our Vision: At Karratha Primary School we value diversity and academic excellence. We are positive and inclusive. We embrace the values of care, personal best, responsibility and respect to nurture independent lifelong learners and active citizens.
Our motto is ‘Courtesy’, which refers to being polite and using manners. Courtesy is also showing excellence in the way we treat others and ourselves.
In 2015, our priorities are Teaching and Learning; Behaviour; and Pastoral Care. Literacy and Numeracy blocks will be a key focus, along with academic excellence and inclusive practices for all students. This year, we continue developing our Positive Behaviour Support program. We are beginning the implementation of KidsMatter, a whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing.
2015 is a significant time for Karratha Primary School as we are now an Independent Public School.
In 2015 we are delivering specialist programs in The Arts, Physical Education and Health. Our Year 6 students are taking on leadership roles as the graduating class.
I look forward to a fantastic year in which our whole school community focuses on supporting every child in the school to develop as independent lifelong learners and active citizens.
Kate Lyon, Principal
