About our school

At Kincumber Public School we believe we can inspire every child to participate positively in society. We focus on promoting excellence, opportunity and success for every student, every day.

We value and strive to develop safe, respectful learners. These values are underpinned by a strong social and emotional learning curriculum. There is a high level of social support between all groups in the school community. School staff care for each other and students, contributing to an environment where teamwork is valued and a focus on improvement permeates all school activities.

Our inclusive school caters for students with a wide range of learning needs and values diversity. We boast excellent state wide testing results, positioning us as leaders in quality teaching and learning. Our experienced teachers focus on your child's learning and, as a larger school, can draw on a range of specialist staff and resources to cater for individual interests, needs and talents.

We provide an educational environment that applies computer technology effectively, develops sporting skills and allows for valuable cultural experiences and a positive approach to school life. We provide highly successful programs in environmental education, early learning, performing arts, sport and gifted education, setting us apart from other schools.

Located in a bushland setting, our school curriculum and practices focus strongly on the environment, encouraging students to value sustainable habits. Our outstanding transition programs, from home to school and from primary to high school, support student learning and achievement. Children have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, supported by school staff with expertise and strong commitment to excellence.

Our school actively networks with its parents, other schools in the Kincumba Learning Community and local community organisations as partners in learning, including the local Tjudibaring Aboriginal Education Consultative Group. Strong collaboration exists between our partner schools. Progressive school staff embrace the opportunities of shared programs and combined professional learning to enhance the continuum of learning from Kindergarten to Year 12.

The volunteers of the Parents' and Citizens' Association support the school's vision and values. Community services such as a uniform shop, canteen and out of school hours and vacation care are available to assist busy families. Since 1870 we've provided outstanding education and a tradition of community values in a public school setting.

As a public school as part of a large supportive system, we have access to up-to-date professional learning and resources to personalise learning for all students. We invite you to contact us to find out more about the great opportunities we offer.
