Kingston Primary School
Kingston Primary School, running K-7, is part of the revolutionised schooling system, as it was selected as one of the first public schools in WA to become an Independent Public School. This allows for more autonomy in the administration of the school, with the ability to merit select staff. The vision of the school is to be an innovative exemplar of professional education practice and learning for teachers, and to create optimum development opportunities for students.
Kingston Primary School priorities:
- Social/Behavioural Development
Located on Macquarie Drive, the school is abundant with specialist teachers including visual arts, music, Japanese language and physical education, with all students participating in these programs.
Kingston Primary school is also unique in that they are a Professional Learning School, in fact they are the very first in Australia. Similar to teaching hospitals, this means that a number of classroom teachers are mentors, and have an intern with them throughout the year. In collaboration with the interns, fourth-year education students from Murdoch University, there is a greater capacity for teachers to meet the needs of all students in the class.
