Port Kennedy Primary School opened in 1996 and caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. In 2017 we proudly became an Independent Public School and provide an exceptional service to our families and local community. We have a strong affiliation with the Royal Australian Navy, in particular the HMAS Stirling and offer a Defence Force Transition Aide for children with parents who are in the forces.
We have a passionate and experienced staff, with some being foundation staff members. Our staff are dedicated to providing a broad and inspiring curriculum that challenges and meets the learning needs of our students, with an emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy. We have a variety of specialty staff which enables the school to offer specialist programs that include music, physical education and science. A LOTE program will start in 2018 for Year 3 students, with it rolling out yearly afterwards.
Our CHAMPS initiative, standing for Caring, Healthy, Active, Motivated, Positive School, encourages our students and school community to engage in a warm, caring and friendly environment. We have a strong anti-bullying policy with appropriate measures in place to support this. Our school Chaplain engages with students on a needs basis and runs different programs each term focusing on building confidence and coping skills.
Classrooms are comfortable and encourage learning with wet areas for arts and crafts in each teaching block. Music and science have specialist classrooms with science boasting an aquaponics centre and vegetable garden. Physical education is taught on our basketball courts, in our renovated undercover area and on the oval, which is a dual use facility and managed in conjunction with the City of Rockingham. Our Kindergarten and Pre-primary students enjoy learning and playing in our new Nature Playground.
