East Kenwick Primary School (5634)

School Overview

East Kenwick Primary School has been part of the Kenwick community for over 35 years. The school has a steady enrolment of around 400 students drawn from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds. We have approximately 15% Indigenous enrolment and 48% English as a Second Language we celebrate our cultural diversity and the experiences that each family brings to our school. We have a long running community agreement with our Indigenous families, and during this business plan cycle, we will develop a whole community agreement that is respective and inclusive of our diverse community.

Our young leaders accept strong academic and personal challenges and learn with pride. We have a Positive Behaviour Support approach which has four underpinning guidelines: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Caring and Be Your Best.

During 2014 we gained Independent Public School status. This has provided us with greater flexibilities to deliver programs and resources to our students which better cater for their individual needs and differences. This process has also led the staff, community and students to developing a vision for East Kenwick Primary School.

Our Vision

'Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow'.
