Student wellbeing is central to our purpose at Kallista Primary School. Our values of Trust, Respect, Creativity, Perseverance, and Compassion guide our actions and underpin our relationships, our procedures, and our curriculum. These five values make our school a great place to learn, play, and grow together!
Ways that we teach and implement values education at our school include:
Student leadership programs across the whole school
A highly effective anti-bullying policy and restorative practices
Comprehensive Transition Programs for Preschool to Foundation, and Year Six to Year Seven
Provision of Student Support Services (school psychologist and speech pathologist)
Provision of a safe and secure learning environment, based on School Wide Positive Behaviours
Positive student behaviour at our school is first and foremost built upon healthy relationships between all school staff, students and parents. A positive partnership between school and home is an essential precondition for a happy and secure school experience. Our safe school environment is enhanced through values education and is reinforced through the School Wide Positive Behaviours framework. Children enjoy being noticed displaying our school values in the classroom and playground, and receive Student “Spotto Awards” that are celebrated at school assemblies. The Buddies program and Peacemakers in the Playground foster safety, security and care for others.
