Small School......BIG Opportunities!

Welcome to the Kingston-on-Murray Primary School website

Kingston-on-Murray Primary School really is a small school with BIG opportunities.  Situated on the River Murray in the Riverland, the school offers many educational teaching and learning programs including Literacy, Numeracy, Health and Physical Education, Art, Spanish and Integrated Studies; incorporating a number of key learning areas.  The school provides an important link to the River Murray and surrounds, creating and actively fostering opportunities for students to experience Environmental programs; encouraging inquiry learning activities in a hands-on and interactive way.  Our facilities include a swimming pool, tennis courts, vegetable garden, chicken coop, turtle pond, bird garden, oval, shaded play areas and a large multi-purpose room including kitchen, toilet, shower and undercover outdoor barbeque area.  As well as this we have a specialised Playgroup room and weekly Playgroup Programme tailored for children 0 to 5 years, with direct links to support a smooth kindergarten to school transition for all children.  We have a well-resourced Library, Interactive Whiteboards, Laptops and new Digital Media which enables us to provide all students at the school with positive, rich and diverse educational experiences.

At Kingston-on-Murray Primary School, students are involved in varied learning opportunities including daily, explicit Literacy and Numeracy blocks of learning within the Echidna (R-2) and Bilby (3-7) Learning Areas.  Mrs Natalie Coote (Principal/Teacher) teaches the R-2 class during these times, as well as R-7 Spanish on a Thursday.  Mrs Jo Bevan (Full time teacher) teaches the 3-7 class during these times, and teaches R-7 Choir, Art and Integrated Learning in the afternoons.  Mrs Melanie Cant (Contract teacher) teaches Literacy, Numeracy, Art and Child Protection in the Echidna room, as well as Health and Physical Education and Spanish across the school.  The students are well supported in their learning by SSOs, Kerry Albrecht-Szabo and Sharon Crocker, assisting within the classrooms and facilitating the daily Intervention Program designed to support students 1:1 with their Literacy and Numeracy learning and understanding.  Mrs Bronwyn Foote is also part of the staff team as the Administrator and Finance Officer at Kingston-on-Murray.

Kingston-on-Murray Primary School prides itself on upholding its four values of RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY, TEAMWORK and HONESTY.  The Governing Council, staff and wider school community work in partnership to ensure that students access a safe and supportive learning environment, where differences are celebrated and achievement is recognised.  Individual Learning Plans are developed for each student in collaboration with parents, teachers and the students themselves, ensuring that achievable educational goals are set and reviewed regularly.  Kingston-on-Murray Primary School hosts Riverlinx camps for other schools who are interested in  being involved in Environmental learning programs through accessing and learning about the River Murray, its extensive water and bird life and experiencing all that the Riverland region has to offer.
