Welcome to the 2018 school year and in particular to families new to North Kal. Our school has been providing quality education and care for 115 years and we look forward to building on this proud tradition during 2018 and beyond. I have been privileged to serve in the role of principal at North Kal since 2009. The strength of our school lies in the dedication of teaching and support staff, along with the strong advocacy from our school families, led by the volunteers in our P&C and School Council.
Recently I have been reflecting on the direction of our school and along with input from the School Council we have endeavoured to capture what our school stands for in the following statement:
What do we stand for?
Our school vision states: “We provide every child with an education to succeed in our changing world. Our students reflect our four core values of: responsibility, respect, caring for others and personal best. They are successful learners who are confident and creative global citizens.”
To enact this vision the school is committed and willing to be held accountable to:
That’s what we stand for
