About our school

Our School

At Kensington Public School we are committed to empowering every student with the knowledge and skills required to achieve their full potential across all aspects of academic, social, emotional and physical learning. At the foundation of all school practices and procedures are our core values: Knowledge, Honour and Community.

We recognise students as individuals and actively encourage all learners to be resilient, critical and creative thinkers who effectively collaborate, communicate and build positive relationships with others. We provide rich and supportive learning environments, designed to provide our students with opportunities to develop the technological skills required to participate successfully in our global community.

Our students are taught by outstanding teachers with high expectations who model a commitment to life-long learning and foster a culture of continuous improvement.

Strong partnerships between teachers, students and parents are essential in achieving an inclusive, culturally-rich and nurturing learning environment that prepares students to be active, responsible citizens and future-focused learners.
