Below are testimonials about why families and teachers chose Kairi State School.
We have loved having our son attend Kairi State School for the two years he has been here. Being a small school, we have been able to enjoy getting to know his fellow classmates and their parents, his school teachers and the older grade teachers well, and likewise, they too know our family. I love the friendliness, positiveness and professionalism of all the teachers here, and the support we have received whilst here. Prep/1 Parent.
As a recently retired teacher from Kairi State School I felt that I wanted to share my thoughts about my seven very happy years within the Kairi school community.
When I came to the Tablelands I was hoping to teach in a small school where I could find a sense of belonging amongst students, parents and teachers as well as shared values and aspirations. Kairi State School filled that role perfectly. I found that:
this school is always willing to embrace new ideas and opportunities for improvement in the students’ learning environment.
the small school community of Kairi State School gives each student a sense of belonging through a caring, sharing social setting being nurtured and sustained. The older students guide the younger ones and the younger students give the older ones many opportunities to develop a supportive, nurturing role within each school day.
the multi-age groupings as Kairi State School give all students opportunities for social emotional and academic development outside the traditional graded learning environment.
I know that Kairi State School is a place where each child is valued and encouraged to enjoy success in every aspect of their school life.
Having moved from a larger school to Kairi has been nothing but positive. I love the way everyone in our school community pulls together when needed, which was evident at our centenary celebrations in 2011. I would recommend Kairi school to anyone. Don't overlook small schools, they offer big things! My children have never been happier to learn. Parent of three.
