Welcome from the Principal

Principal's Welcome


Welcome to our website. At Kismet we pride ourselves on being a true Learning Community, which actively involves Teachers, Students and Parents in the journey of learning. As a community we are committed to all students achieving personal excellence through the provision of dynamic academic, cultural and social programs, which develop the whole child. Students are encouraged to become lifelong learners who value themselves, others and learning.

 

Kismet Places a strong emphasis on the explicit teaching of Literacy and Numeracy. We are fortunate to be involved in the state wide Primary Mathematics Specialist program which is a two year initiative aimed at building teacher capacity and boosting primary students’ engagement and achievement in mathematics. Staff are currently involved in a trial of ‘Money Smart’ Teaching packages that are being developed to promote consumer and financial literacy among students.


A cooperative, supportive learning environment along with the setting of high behavioural and academic standards is essential to students achieving personal excellence.  We work to achieve this achieve this by fostering respect for others, the environment and ourselves. We celebrate achievement and success in all fields of learning – The Arts through opportunities to perform such as our Biennial Whole School Productions, Physical Education through a wide range of Sporting opportunities and Academic success through participation in a range of challenging extra curricula opportunities such as Maths Olympiad.

 

As lifelong learners we as a school are committed to the ongoing development of our practices to ensure we provide the best possible learning environment for our students and their families. We are well supported by a proactive and enthusiastic school council and parent community who work with us to provide a learning environment that promotes our ethos of ‘Empowerment and Excellence for all’.
