Kellerberrin District High School (4081)

School Overview

Kellerberrin District High School is located in the Wheatbelt town of Kellerberrin, 200 kilometers east of Perth in the Wheatbelt Education Region. The school caters for a range of students from Kindergarten to Year 10. Kellerberrin District High School has an enrolment hovering around 100 students, of which 20% are identified as Aboriginal. Three buses service primary and secondary students living on farms in the catchment area. Currently the school is staffed by a Principal, Deputy Principal, two Level 3 classroom teachers, 9 members of the teaching staff and 15 non-teaching support staff.

With a smaller student population, we provide a learning environment where all students are known individually by staff. The school aims to re-focus on this distinctive feature of our school and plans to meet the needs of individual students, whilst ensuring all students are actively engaged in the learning process. Our school has an Index of Community Socio-Educational Advantage (ICSEA) of 894.

Student success is at the centre of everything we do. The school provides quality teaching and learning programs to students from Kindergarten to Year 10. The school has a bright and brilliant physical environment that is complimented by regular upgrades to the grounds, with improvements to the undercover area, nature play area, a fort and solid shade structure in the early childhood area. These regular upgrades cater for the breadth of students enrolled, with specific purpose buildings, including: an Early Childhood Centre, Science Laboratory, Visual Arts room, a computer laboratory, a technologies room and a Library/Resource Centre, providing learning environments to support the delivery of specialised programs. To cater for the curriculum needs of each student, specialised teachers deliver the learning programs in these areas.

Students at Educational Risk (SAER) are catered to through both remedial and academic extension program opportunities. We have a strong alliance with para-professionals, such as the school psychologist, counselling services and Primary Health, to assist us with the health and well-being of all our students.

There is a strong and supportive P&C, as well as a committed School Board, who works collaboratively with the school to ensure quality teaching and learning programs are being offered to the learners at Kellerberrin District High School.

At Kellerberrin District High School, every child is important to us. We place our learners first and foremost in all our planning and decision making, ensuring that every child receives the very best educational experience possible. We have high expectations of ourselves and the responsibility that our school community places upon us for the educational welfare of their children.
