Welcome to Casuarina Street Primary School and thank you for visiting our website.
Casuarina Street Primary School would like to acknowledge the ancestral lands of Katherine’s aboriginal people. We acknowledge that we are on country and pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging.
Let’s begin by looking at our school vision:
“We strive to achieve”.
Learners at CSPS have an embedded belief that they are capable of achieving success. Learners are able to articulate their goals and devise a plan to achieve them.”
This CSPS vision guides us in all that we do here at Casuarina Street Primary School. We have amazing staff who contribute greatly to the vision of our school, continuously improving and working towards ensuring that our students have success in their learning. Our parents support us and our students demonstrate the 4 school values of Pride, Respect, Responsibility and Inclusions throughout the year.
Casuarina Street Primary School is a growing and vibrant school located in the developing area of Katherine East with a current enrolment of 426 students. Our vision is that Learners at CSPS have an embedded belief that they are capable of achieving success. They are able to articulate their goals and to devise a plan to achieve them. CSPS is a Northern Territory School of Excellence and has been recognised for both its significant improvement in student outcomes and innovative practices. It is also one of 14 Independent Public Schools in the NT.
A large proportion of students at CSPS are part of the Australian Defence Force community located at RAAF Base Tindal. In addition, students attending CSPS identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander. CSPS caters for a diverse range of learners including those with additional needs and those identified as being gifted and talented. A range of connections and initiatives place the school at the heart of the Katherine Community, with high levels of attendance and engagement.
As an Independent Public School CSPS we work closely with the CSPS Board and associated sub-committees to develop future strategic initiatives and to provide ongoing governance of the school structures and procedures.
