Principal's Welcome

Wel­come to Casua­r­i­na Street Pri­ma­ry School and thank you for vis­it­ing our website.

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 (35%) at CSPS are part of the Aus­tralian Defence Force com­mu­ni­ty locat­ed at RAAF Base Tin­dal. In addi­tion, 11.2% of 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 (91.8% for 2019 and 92.3% for the 2018 school year). 

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.

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.

In 2020 we are launch­ing our new strate­gic plan which out­lines our school’s pri­or­i­ties for Improve­ment over the next three years. The link to this doc­u­ment is pro­vid­ed below along­side our Annu­al School Improve­ment Plan and our Annu­al Per­for­mance Report from 2019
