Our learning behaviours & our 'RESPECT family'

As CKIS, we are proud of each and every one of our school community and the role that they have to play in making this the special place that it is. As such, we have high expectations of everyone, our children, staff and community. We have clear rules and expectations regarding how we should behave and act towards others and our environment.

At CKIS we focus upon ‘RESPECT’ learning behaviours throughout the school:

Our school theme this term is all about 'Respect and Tolerance'. 

Each term we explore one of our learning characteristics in more detail and enjoy celebrating those children who have demonstrated these important learning behaviours in our kindergarten and school in our weekly Friday celebration assembly.

The children are encouraged to recognise and acknowledge these learning behaviours through daily provision and practice. They are supported to understand these positive behaviours through our school family of characters which highlight the learning behaviours we are all encouraging and looking for. These learning behaviours are highlighted and embedded within our daily discussions, assemblies, stories and throughout our curriculum.
