Kambalda Primary School is a small regional school approximately 631km north-east of Perth and 58km south of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, the nearest regional city. We are highly valued in the Kambalda community with a reputation of caring and attentive instruction, catering for the academic, social, physical and emotional individual needs of each student.
Our values of resilience, organisation, persistence, confidence and getting along are embedded in the way we operate and in everything we do. We provide a safe, warm and friendly learning environment that supports each child to achieve their very best.
Learning programs are tailored to suit students’ interests, passions and academic ability. We have an innovative, exciting and stimulating leaning environment to ignite the imagination of all students and we continually monitor and review all programs to ensure they remain effective, relevant and current.
We implement whole school practices for Literacy, Numeracy and Inquiry Learning, ensuring consistency across the school and deliver high quality programs following the content of the School Curriculum and Standards Authority WA.
Kambalda Primary School is well equipped for 21st Century learning; we are resourced with appropriate ICT hardware; the staff and students regularly use computers, iPads, printers, etc. and all classrooms are equipped with BenQ Smart TVs used regularly throughout the day. We focus not only on students’ academics, but also on developing them to be creative thinkers, innovative, socially, emotionally and physically capable citizens in a rapidly changing society. It is our aim to have confident children who are socially competent, resilient, and caring of others.
Our school may be small, but we offer facilities and programs found in bigger schools. Our point of difference is highlighted by our smaller class sizes that allow our staff to offer differentiated curriculum and we pride ourselves on our wide reputation for catering for the individual needs and interests of your child.
Our inclusive atmosphere ensures that every child becomes an integral part of the school community: peer tutoring is often evident in classrooms and is a very effective way for students to improve their understanding of concepts; students from years 1-6 engage with each other daily in the playground; there are a number of whole school events throughout the year with multi-aged groupings.
We offer opportunities for students to be involved in sporting and academic activities with other schools in Kambalda and the Goldfields region throughout the year. Our strong community partnerships in Kambalda with local businesses, government agencies, community organisations and individuals engaging with us for a variety of learning opportunities that support our well-developed culture of community and pride in our school.
