Welcome to the Kingston-on-Murray Primary School

At Kingston-on-Murray Primary School, students are involved in varied learning opportunities throughout the school day including daily, explicit Literacy and Numeracy blocks of learning within the Echidna (R-3) and Bilby (4-6) Learning Areas, and support is offered in groups or 1;1 driven by the regularly obtained student data. Mrs Rachael Thomson, Mr Phillip Lawson and Mrs Kara Voigt (Principal/Teacher) make up the teaching team at the school, ensuring that students are provided with a range of additional integrated learning opportunities including The Arts, STEM, HPE, HASS, Science and Spanish. The students are well supported in their learning by SSO Kerry Albrecht-Szabo assisting within the classrooms to support individual or small groups of students. Miss Sheridan Heinze is a key part of the staff team as the Finance Officer while Dinah Wisniewski is our Administration Officer and Mr Brenton Poole is the Pastoral Care Worker on site at Kingston-on-Murray.

Kingston-on-Murray Primary School prides itself on upholding its four values of RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY, TEAMWORK and HONESTY. The Governing Council, staff and wider school community work in partnership to ensure that students access a safe and supportive learning environment, where differences are celebrated and achievement is recognised. Individual Learning Plans are developed for each student in collaboration with parents, teachers and the students themselves, ensuring that achievable educational goals are set and reviewed regularly. Kingston-on-Murray Primary School hosts Riverlinx camps throughout the year for other schools who are interested in being involved in Environmental learning programs through accessing and learning about the River Murray, its extensive water and bird life and experiencing all that the Riverland region has to offer.

The way our Year 2/3s embrace challenge, rather than run from it, is inspiring ❀️
We feel so proud of them all the time l!! This task was testing them, it confused them, it wasn’t anything they had done before, yet they had the skills to solve it!! They just needed to persevere, dig deep and back themselves and that is exactly what they did!!!!
Check out that concentration 🌟 They are learning to tell analogue time to the minute 🀩

We were very honoured to have our Riverlinx Camps named as a finalist in the SA Government Volunteer Awards! We were up against phenomenal opposition and didn't win the prestigious Andamooka Award last night, however it was still a huge pat on the back to our volunteers and staff over many years to be recognised as a TOP 7 Finalist!
With Di Robertson - Principal and Jo Grant - Teacher, in the beginning to start off Riverlinx Camps 14 years ago, with the support of all following Principals, Natasha Hefford, Rob Smyth, Natalie Coote and now Kara Voigt we forged ahead to host 28 camps over 14 years! Philip Lawson is now the co-ordinating teacher and has been for the last few years.
Along the way we have had Veronica Heinis, Jenny Arnold , Leanne McKinnon , Noni Mader and Michelle Pope all take charge of the catering at different stages, which is an outstanding effort.
Our amazing families over many years have assisted with tent set up and pack up, working bees to tidy up yard, supplying firewood/ fire buckets when required, allowing students to stay later and present their workshops if needed.
All past and present Rangers at Banrock Station have been a wealth of knowledge taking tours for us each camp, Carl Doubikin has taken Loch Luna Cruises every camp since 2008, and recently Tony Lyons and Jackson Wickham have assisted us with the new Paddleboat Workshop. Cindy Kakoshke from Landcare Board has also been a valuable resource and always willing to help with presenting or providing resources since 2008!
Last but certainly not least, the students and staff who go above and beyond to make these camps a memorable experience for all involved....THANK YOU!!!
Our place as finalist only happened because of this remarkable community investment!! CONGRATULATIONS ALL!!!!!

Congratulations Kingston-on-Murray Primary School on a well deserved accolade that has supported the learning and development of hundreds of students. The planning, organisation, preparation, resourcing and implementation of Riverlinx takes a community and I am proud to have played a small part in it. Awesome work team! πŸ‘

I have to say it’s my favourite project from concept to established operation. Such brilliant teamwork over the years to make these unique environmental education camps the best. Big thanks to Kerry for her submission. Legends ❀️

It is great to talk to the students & to show my old school teachers model Australian Paddle Boats to explain how life was in the old days . Well done to all at the KOM School . Cheers Tony.

So awesome you should all be very proudπŸ˜‰

Congratulations guys xx
