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 purpose at Karratha Primary School is to provide a positive learning environment in which students can acquire the outcomes which all students need in order to become lifelong learners, achieve their potential in their personal and working lives and play an active part in civic and economic life. 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 2014, our priorities continue to be Literacy, Numeracy and catering inclusively for the specific needs of each child. Curriculum development includes the implementation of the Australian Curriculum. Positive Behaviour Support is developing across the school, with our key focus areas identified as Care, Personal Best and Responsibility. Specialist teachers will provide programs in Science, Physical Education and Health. As we approach 2015, we are focussing on preparing our Year 6 and 7 students for high school and acknowledging their final year in primary school through significant events such as camp and graduation.
I look forward to a fantastic year in which every child in the school experiences success and growth, and our school community as a whole is focussed upon this.
