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.
