Principal’s welcome

Kenmore State School is an Independent Public School located in the heart of Kenmore. It provides a quality education for children from the Preparatory Year to Year 6. Our school community is dedicated to achieving excellent results for our students and school. Our school motto; Courtesy and Knowledge is indicative of the philosophy we share as a learning organisation. Our school vision; Strive - Create - Achieve drives the work that we do in our school on a day-to-day basis with the goal of ensuring every student is succeeding.

We are committed to achieving the best for our students in academic, sporting, artistic and cultural fields. We strive purposely to improve on the quality of education that we deliver through strategies that encourage continuous improvement in every student.

The primary years of schooling have a special place in the educational experience of children. These years are crucial in a child’s development providing the foundation for success as life-long learners. We believe that such a foundation is built in a safe, happy and supportive environment where students remain enthusiastic learners. This is facilitated through positive relationships between teachers and students, programs that are responsive to the needs of learners and teaching strategies and learning experiences that motivate students to learn.

We are committed to fostering a community of life-long learners that are willing and able to contribute to an active society. We provide a strong academic curriculum that develops a broad range of knowledge across a range of fundamental areas while we also successfully cater for students who either need to be extended or supported within a highly inclusive framework.

We hold high expectations for our students both in their school work and behaviour. These expectations are complemented by our school values that guide our actions and behaviours throughout the school. Our values: Respect, Responsibility and Resilience are shared across all parties in our school community and are evident across our school.

We look forward to welcoming your child/ren to the Kenmore S.S. community – a warm, friendly, professional and dedicated school. Please navigate through our site and share in the good things that we are doing as a school.
