Our Goals for 2014
The overall purpose of Kin Kora State School is to develop students who are recognised as being
equipped to contribute positively to society. Students will understand that it is important to be safe,
responsible, respectful and a learner.
OUR PRIORITIES FOR 2014:
- Teacher accountable learning: We have high expectations that our teachers are skilled and
confident and that your child’s academic data will be collected and analysed regularly.
- High Expectations: We believe in the potential for all students to learn and achieve and we
set specific and measurable targets for improvement.
- Explicit instruction: This means that we expect quality and explicit teaching which is aligned
to the Kin Kora State School Pedagogy Framework. All teachers are supported in this
endeavour through coaching and feedback conducted by the Principal, the Deputies, our Head
of Curriculum, the CQ Pedagogy Coach and our PREP / Year 1 Literacy Coach.
- Effective relationships between teachers and students: The focus is on every student ie
academically and socially.
