Primary Learning Centre

The Kalianna Primary Learning Community consists of five small classes each with two teachers and two or three support staff in each classroom. We provide caring, engaging and supportive learning environments for all of our students and programs in line with the Victorian Curriculum F (Prep)-10 standards.

Every student has an Individualised Learning Plan which is a set of individual goals prepared collaboratively with students, parents and specialist participants. With a student centred focus, students participate in discipline-based learning such as English, Mathematics and Science, as well as attending regular Art, Values and Life Education and Physical Education sessions with specialist staff. In addition to this, students are involved in regular independent living and social skills integrated throughout the curriculum where great importance is placed on the development of communication and social skills to promote independence. This sets students up to be lifelong learners equipped with the skills to become valued members of our community.

The Primary Years Learning Community at Kalianna School have a range of facilities and equipment that promote happy, engaged learners.  This includes our own playground with built-in sand pit, play-ground and trampoline as well as a large selection of indoor playing choices. The students learn how to safely use a range of technology including computers, iPads, interactive whiteboards, and cameras.

A Speech Pathologist is available to supplement students needs. Individual,  small group and whole class sessions are available for students and our specialists work closely with teachers in providing follow up activities and strategies to assist with student development.

 

Kalianna provides a range of other programs which are available to students within the Primary Learning Community such as:

​​

  • Bike Education

  • Swimming

  • Camps

  • Weekly Learning Journeys

  • Excursions

  • Buddies

 

At Kalianna we understand that parents make the world of difference when it comes to student learning. Communication between school and home is seen to be highly important to ensure information is passed through that can ensure each student can see success with their learning every day. Our goal is to challenge students, provide structured learning opportunities and focus on students’ strengths and interests in an inclusive learning environment to promote positive, creative and independent young learners.
