Principal’s Welcome

Welcome. I am delighted to introduce you to Kinross Wolaroi School.

We are a close-knit, engaged, friendly community that has been educating children of rural communities for over 130 years. Kinross Wolaroi values its history, yet it blends traditional values – courtesy, tolerance, respect and decency with a forward and outward approach to education.

At Kinross Wolaroi your child will experience a first class innovative and dynamic learning environment that will provide them with the academic and personal skills to flourish in the 21st century. Academic ambition matters and it is important that every student is inspired to be the best they can be. We possess a vision for learning that encompasses all aspects of life, not just the intellectual but also the social, cultural, physical and spiritual dimensions where education is deliberately structured to develop the whole person in a caring, family oriented environment.

We passionately believe that enjoyment of learning and the wellbeing of our students must lie at the heart of a school. Students learn to think independently and develop a spirit of independence that will allow them to thrive in a rapidly changing world.

Your sons and daughters will encounter many challenges, choices and opportunities so that they can grow and discover their abilities and passions in life. Kinross Wolaroi enjoys an excellent reputation for its diverse and engaging co-curricular program that forms a significant element of the rich fabric of the School. Here they will develop self-confidence, resilience, social skills and character that can contribute so much to success in later life.

At Kinross Wolaroi your child will enjoy a vibrant contemporary culture and join a family where our inclusive community and grounded culture create a strong sense of belonging.

Our motto “Scientia, Amicitia, Integritas” - Knowledge, Friendship and Integrity is central to the lived experience of our students. This, combined with the commitment of our dedicated staff, parents and community, will see your child grow into a young adult of integrity who possesses a sense of social justice, qualities that will see them go out into the world to make a significant contribution to society.

I look forward to welcoming you and your family to Kinross Wolaroi School.

With best wishes

Dr Andrew Parry
