Our school motto “success by effort” permeates all areas of our school culture. Children are encouraged through modelling, explicit conversations and support to reflect and live our motto in daily routines and interactions with others. Staff and students are actively supported to demonstrate respect for themselves and others. Staff place high expectations on our students in behaviour and work ethics and students are encouraged to do their best at all times.
Another principle that is instilled and continuously reinforced with Kumbia State School students is the essence of why they attend school. “We’re at school to learn” is the expression students are extremely familiar with from the onset and reminded of regularly to keep them on track.
