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 (4-7) Learning Areas, and specialised Literacy and Numeracy Intervention groups catering for individual student learning needs, structured based on individual student data. Mrs Rachael Thomson, Mr Phillip Lawson, Mrs Rachel 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 SSOs, Kerry Albrecht-Szabo, Sarah-Jane Albrecht and Dinah Wisniewski, assisting within the classrooms to support individual students, and facilitating Intervention Programmes designed to support students 1:1 with their Literacy and Numeracy learning and understanding. Mrs Karlie O’Callaghan is a key part of the staff team as the Administration and Finance Officers, Mr John Scott is the Groundsman, 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.
