Casuarina Street Primary School is located in the town of Katherine, 315km south of Darwin. Casuarina Street Primary School (CSPS) is located on Casuarina Street in Katherine East, Katherine. The school first opened in 1998 and our grounds contain four general learning areas, each with four classrooms and communal working spaces for additional work with students; as well as a library, multi-purpose hall and stage, canteen and single unit preschool set amongst well maintained grounds with a combination of shaded and open playing areas and outdoor facilities. The vision for our school — ‘We Strive to Achieve’ is reflective of a community where learners can identify aspirational goals for ongoing improvement and can articulate a plan to achieve this, demonstrating growth towards and beyond their targets each year.
Casuarina Street Primary School is an Independent Public School. This growing and vibrant school has a current enrolment of 405 students, an increase of 22% in student population in the last 12 months. The school has experienced significant growth as a school community in the period between 2013 and 2018 and a large proportion of students (34%) at Casuarina Street Primary School are part of the expanding Australian Defence Force community based at RAAF Base Tindal, with a range of connections and initiatives placing the school at the heart of the Katherine Community, with significantly high levels of attendance and engagement (91.4% for the 2017 school year).
