We are here for the students

Kingswood Primary has flexible teaching spaces allowing us to design a curriculum that meets the needs of the 3rd millennium learners.

Wellbeing

At Kingswood Primary School, we focus on providing an environment where students feel happy, safe and cared for. Not only are we committed to delivering the best education, we also strive to create an enjoyable and positive learning environment where students and staff can flourish and prosper.

Students’ wellbeing is a high priority, and we pride ourselves on the programs we implement that focus on the wellbeing of students and staff.

In 2018, we formed our Special Celebrations Working Party, whose job it is to organise and run events to mark cultural diversity. Events such as Refugee Week, Reconciliation Week, Diwali and the Moon Festival were discussed and a team of parents and staff worked together to organise activities for the students at lunch time and assembly presentations to promote the celebration.

Shake and wake is held every Wednesday morning from 8:45am to build enthusiasm and a sense of community through structured dances and to help students prepare their brains for learning in the middle of the week. This is promoted through weekly lunchtime dance practice where students learn the moves to a range of songs.

Mindfulness colouring is held every Friday at lunchtime for students wishing to colour in a quiet and calm environment. Weekly yoga lunchtime classes are also offered to senior students.

    

WOW (Walk or Wheel) Wednesday in conjunction with Kingston Council, is promoted to students in Term 2 to encourage them to walk or travel by wheels to school once a week.

Parents are supported to foster the physical, social and emotional wellbeing of their children through parent presentations, which are funded by the Rotary Club of Dingley Village. In 2019, the school will work with Life Skills Group and will hold three evening information sessions through the year. The themes will be chosen by the Kingswood community as we progress.

Strong links with external services ensure that, when a student requires an extra level or support, it is available to them. Services include counselling and language and educational assessments, as well as family support organisations such as Family Life, Make a Difference Dingley Village, Child FIRST and ELMHS. Please speak to Patrick Halpin (Assistant Principal) if you, your child or your family requires any additional supports.
