Keelonith Learning Philosophy

At Keelonith Primary School we are focussed on igniting our students’ curiosity about the world in which we live. Our curriculum program is based on the Victorian Curriculum

We endeavor to incorporate our students’ interests and passions into our curriculum planning and use our assessment practices to determine the level of learning for each individual child.

Students at KPS are immersed in Inquiry learning on a daily basis. Students’ questions, areas of interest and learning styles provide the foundation for the development of the termly Inquiry units.

Authentic links are made to the three modes of English (Reading, Writing and Speaking & Listening) through exploration of relevant purposes for writing and texts which support understanding of the concepts explored.

Wherever possible, links are made to the Mathematics curriculum. Where there are authentic links to the Inquiry unit, mathematical concepts are explored within that context.

If there are no natural links, then the mathematical content is explicitly explored including through open ended tasks, real life situations and authentic experiences.

Students at KPS participate in weekly sessions of Physical Education, STEM and Visual Arts and Performing Arts for one semester each. In 2022 Auslan will be introduced as our Language Other Than English.
