Primary school is where the journey begins to take shape, the start of thirteen years of formalised education. Because learning begins the day a child is born, by the time they arrive at school they already have a wealth of knowledge and understandings in place. Our Primary education program as Kempsey Adventist School (KAS) builds on this knowledge base and assists students to establish connections between what they know and experience and what they will discover in the classroom.
We maintain small classes so that teachers can get to know the individual needs of each child. Building on a solid foundation in literacy and numeracy we enable all of our students to discover and develop their special gifts and talents. We challenge each student to discover his/her particular gifts and talents in a variety of ways and believe that each child is unique and special.
Our qualified and experienced teachers recognise that each child learns at a different rate and in a variety of different ways, and are therefore able to facilitate learning so that each child reaches their full potential in their own time.
Our students are actively engaged in their education through a vibrant Board of Studies program which is relevant and useful in everyday living. Building on a solid foundation in literacy and numeracy we enable all of our students to discover and develop their special gifts and talents.
Learning support is also available to address areas of need.
