Karingal Heights Primary School is located on a picturesque site in a well-established suburb of Frankston. We promote ourselves as providing a welcoming, engaging, respectful and supportive environment where children are educated and wellbeing is nurtured so they are able to develop optimism while working towards their personal best individually and in the context of their school and wider community. Our enrolment for 2021 is 80 children consisting of 4 classrooms.
All key learning areas of the curriculum are provided for with an emphasis on literacy and numeracy where we have been especially pleased with the increase in our student leaning outcomes over the past few years. Specialist programs consist of Visual Arts, Physical Education and Japanese. Keeping abreast of new technologies is of importance to us and the students have access to modern touch screen laptops and iPads. Our Classroom Kitchen is used for cooking classes and Breakfast Club throughout the year.
Our relationship with both Frankston Special Development School and McClelland College continues to grow with various classes based at Karingal Heights. This began during works at the respective schools and has continued due to its success.
Whole school planning by staff is based on high expectations for all of our students. Our staff provide targeted learning for their students and participate in ongoing professional learning to continually learn new strategies and direction to assist in this.
We are very proud of our students, staff and their achievements.
