At Korumburra Primary School, we use the AusVELS curriculum across the school.
The three strands included in AusVels are as follows:
|Physical, Personal and Social Learning||Students learn about themselves and their place in society. They learn how to stay healthy and active. Students develop skills in building social relationships and working with others. They take responsibility for their learning, and learn about their rights and responsibilities as global citizens.|
|Discipline-based Learning||Students learn the knowledge, skills and behaviours in the arts, English, humanities, mathematics, science and other languages.|
|Interdisciplinary Learning||Students explore different ways of thinking, solving problems and communicating. They learn to use a range of technologies to plan, analyse, evaluate and present their work. Students learn about creativity, design principles and processes.|
Parent / Teacher / Student conferences are held at different times throughout the year. Comprehensive written reports are handed out at the end of Semester 1 (Term 2) and Semester 2 (Term 4). Should you have a problem or a query, you are encouraged to make an appointment to discuss it with the appropriate teacher through the office.

Additional Student Support
KPS has a number of support programs in place as well as specific intervention programs for our students. The school also has access to student consultants [Psychologist, Social Worker and Speech Pathologist] to support our students.
The Program for Students with Disabilities (PSD) is a major component of the K.P.S. Program. Students are accepted into the program on the basis of defined student needs. We employ a number of Education Support Officers for this purpose.
As part of our school’s Pastoral Care Program we are fortunate to have the services of a School Chaplain. Matt Stear is employed two days a week and serves as an extension of the schools desire for Pastoral care to be available to the students and their families as well as the teaching staff.
