Korakonui School - Small enough to care yet big enough to challenge and inspire

Principal's Message

Korakonui School is a Rural Full Primary School catering for students from Years 1­-8. At Korakonui School we have high but realistic expectations. Our Staff and Board of Trustees are committed to delivering the core business of ‘learning’. We work hard to know our learners well and are committed to building the necessary knowledge and competencies for students to thrive and succeed in learning and life.

We provide activities for learners that will stimulate, motivate and challenge them. The school’s curriculum is seen as a living document, regularly reviewed and refined for today’s changing world, as is our Korakonui Learning Pathway, which encompasses our Vision, Values and our Korakonui Competencies. We have a shared philosophy towards teaching and learning which sees us identifying individual learning needs and implementing personalised programmes using a range of programmes, teaching styles and e-learning tools. Our students at Years 3-8 have the option to bring their own device. We believe in raising learner confidence and capability. 

Our committed staff are open, fun and willing to do whatever it takes to ensure that each learner is stretched and experiences fulfilment in learning.  Staff at Korakonui model the vision of ‘Learning for Life’ by continuously immersing themselves in appropriate professional development opportunities which enhance both personal and professional growth, and student achievement outcomes. We are proud of the high achieving, fully rounded students who leave Korakonui School at the end of Year 8.

I encourage your input and value your contribution to school life at Korakonui.  I look forward to working with you in the future as we work in partnership to provide the best education for your child.
