Kalbarri District High School Overview 2018
Respect. Responsibility. Caring
Kalbarri District High school is located in the coastal town of Kalbarri, 600 kms north of Perth. Kalbarri is surrounded by National Park which gives us a unique opportunity to utilise our natural environment in our curriculum. The school nurtures children in Kindergarten through to young adults in Year 12.
Kalbarri has a stable, experienced, high quality staff, who provide a safe and caring class environment for your children whilst presenting a comprehensive and challenging curriculum. Your children have access to computers and ipads enabling them to develop independent learning, research, presentation and coding skills.
Specialist teachers provide Indonesian and Physical Education and upper primary children visit the Secondary Science Lab for their Science lessons.
Year 6 students have a comprehensive transition period that varies each year and as they move into Year 7 they are at ease with the timetable and class structure of Secondary school and look forward to their orientation camp in the first few weeks of the year.
Secondary students look forward to participating in the Senior Country Week and District High Schools Country Week events.
Our senior students have a variety of opportunities to follow their careers or further study dreams. Students study subjects of their choice through the online medium of SIDE. They have access to our teachers who provide the curriculum in English, maths and careers. Some students choose to meet their graduation requirements by participating in our Outdoor Recreation of Cert 2. This course provides our out-doors enthusiasts with activities such as camping, fishing, kayaking, surfing, hiking and first aid all utilising our natural surrounds. Other young people of this age choose to study a vocational course and travel every Thursday to attend the course of their choice at Central Regional TAFE. We believe that every child has unique needs and we work very closely with the student and parents to provide the individual course of study that meeds those needs. Our relationship with UWA through the Aspire program gives students the opportunity to investigate and experience university courses available to them.
As a District High School, each year we have several activities, sporting, cultural and social, that have a distinct family feel with the whole school involved. The Positive Behaviour Support program with the expectations of respect, responsibility and caring is being implemented across the school and is developing positive self- regulation in the children.
Our friendly and caring atmosphere, our well-stocked Library and high ratio of technology devices per child and our enthusiastic P&C and School Council all contribute to a comprehensive and individual education for children.
