We offer one-to-one intervention for our students in mathematics with a focus on number with the Too Smart program. We provide speech intervention support, whole school guided reading to target individual needs and intervention programs as required for literacy.
We have a focus on the community and wellbeing at Kalangadoo Primary School. We use positive and proactive behaviour strategies, and support students to develop their individual skills, while also connecting with the co-located Kindy and other community members.
Our students take part in weekly French lessons through online Open Access classes. Eligible students also have access to programs such as GRIP (Generosity, Responsibility, Integrity, People) and the Young Environmental Leaders Program (YELP) that allow them to represent our school, while bringing them together with other likeminded students from across the region.
Camps and excursions
Being a small, community school, we pride ourselves on providing opportunities for our students to experience our wider community. All students participate in swimming lessons in term 1 as well as at least one excursion each term. Each year, students get the opportunity to take part in a school camp. In recent years, students have attended camps at Cape Bridgewater, Noorla Yo-long Outdoor Adventure camp and Woodhouse Adventure Park in the Adelaide Hills.
Students participate in swimming lessons in Term 1 each year and we also have our own Sports Day here at school every year, where our two sports teams, Lowan and Koorine, compete. Our students have access to regular sporting lessons with a variety of different sports through the Sporting Schools Grant program and the option to participate in a range of SAPSASA (South Australian Primary Schools Amateur Sports Association) events throughout the year. Students recently participated in a month long program of sessions with a local gymnastics club.
We offer a range of experiences in the arts, including music, dance, drama and media. The program helps develop students’ creativity, confidence, cultural knowledge and critical thinking.
Our program includes:
- coming together with other schools to participate in choir
- participation in the Primary School Music Festival
- art experiences with visiting artists, including a workshop to help design our recent school mural
- entering student works for display in local show events
- excursions (where available) to watch performances and other similar experiences
- regular school assemblies involving public speaking and other presentation items by the students
- an end-of-year performance, often involving singing, dancing and acting.
