Kings Park follows the Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships Program. This program outlines a whole school approach aimed at developing the necessary values and social skills for effective communication within the school and in the community. The program is supported in grades through a range of activities, role-play, discussion and games.
The school's core values which are learning, responsibility, tolerance and getting along are explicitly taught in the unit of study, Classroom Community. These continue to be reviewed and referenced throughout the year.
EXCURSIONS AND INCURSIONS
As part of the Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships Program and inquiry based program, guest speakers, incursions and excursions are planned to support learning.
If you have any queries or concerns regarding your child, please make a mutually convenient time to meet with the class teacher outside of class teaching time.
