Kangaroo island community education
School Context Statement
Early, Primary, and Middle Years Schooling are focus areas in each of the campuses; and the needs of Senior Secondary students are catered for in Kingscote and Parndana Campuses. Students travel between Campuses to access the Senior School Curriculum.
Parndana has a site based Preschool.
A focus on literacy and numeracy, within the broad context of student achievement and success, is underpinned by intervention programs, including Quicksmart, Mini-lit, Multi-Lit and various Speech programs.
We use a variety of strategies to ensure that students have a wide range of choice in subjects at Senior Secondary level.
Our VET programs include Auto/Engineering, Rural Production, Civil Construction, Food and Hospitality Food Processing.
Special programs across Kangaroo Island sites include Music, Expressive Arts, and a number of combined Sports activities.
Links to the Kangaroo Island Community Health Service include proactive programs which focus on mental health for young people, immunisation, early intervention, and adolescent support programs as well as health checks and healthy living promotion.
Kangaroo Island Community Education is committed to protecting and supporting the education, health, safety and wellbeing of our students. There is one consolidated budget for the school, with Finance Officers based at each campus, and a Business Manager managing KICE business.
