Kerang Primary School is committed to continuous improvement in all areas of the curriculum. A strong emphasis has been placed on Numeracy, Literacy and ICT which is enhanced by our participation in regional coaching programs. This includes Literacy and a Numeracy coordinator training in early years intervention programs.
The school was established in 1874 and has a long, proud tradition in the local community with a vision for the future that includes further development and integration of information and communication technologies, high quality explicit teaching in learning neighbourhoods and a policy of putting the student at the centre of learning in a safe, friendly learning environment. Our Koori students and their families are supported by a KESO officer and local elders. The Koorie students are engaged in learning and have a high level of attendance and participation rate.
Kerang is a rural town on the Loddon River in northern Victoria in Australia. It is the commercial centre to an irrigation district based on livestock, horticulture, lucerne and grain. It is located 279 kilometres (173 mi) north-west of Melbourne on the Murray Valley Highway a few kilometres north of its intersection with the Loddon Valley Highway. Kerang Primary School is located within the central business district of Kerang and has a strong partnership with parents. The school council and parents club are actively engaged in school activities and fundraising with our bi-yearly fete is a highlight with the whole school community.
Kerang primary school students gain strong understanding of leadership at Australia's Premier Student Leadership Training Event
The 2012 Impact Student Leadership Conference (ISLC) for primary students came to BENDIGO on the 23rd of May 2012.
Over 375 students from more than 25 primary schools attended this interactive, hands-on and practical day that aimed to prepare the students for their roles and responsibilities as student leaders, encourage them to be positive role models who make a difference in their schools, and equip them with the tools to do so.
Between the 30th of April and 30th of May the Impact Leadership Team will have conducted primary conferences in seventeen locations between Coolangatta (QLD) and Port Augusta (SA); the overall goal that students would leave these conferences with a clear vision, a solid understanding of leadership and dozens of ideas for their time as a student leader.
We now have a clear moral purpose of education with our students central to decisions made. We maintain a whole-school focus on the promotion of positive relationships, student resilience, responsible behaviour and improved attendance.
Key strategies include:
A clearly outlined code of behaviour and whole school understanding of our wellbeing policy and behaviour management process.
A focus on classroom routines conducive to good learning.
Weekly celebration of student achievements and high attendance at school assembly.
Engagement of the 'You can do it' program and emphasis to the school community 'It is not ok to be away'.
Engagement of outside agencies to support our students and their families.
