Why choose our school


A message from the Principal

I am pleased to welcome you to Kruger State School. You and your family are now members of the Kruger Team. This Team consists of a professional and enthusiastic staff; a culturally diverse population that constantly strives to achieve the Kruger Team Expectations of Best Effort, Be Respectful and Be Safe at all times; and a loyal and supportive community.

Kruger State School was established in 1978 and currently has an enrolment of 1,000 students. Our emphasis is on maximising student performance in all areas but in particular in the areas of Literacy and Numeracy. We also focus on insisting that every student attends school every day with our motto: Every Day Counts at Kruger State School.

Our Academic Programs are aligned to the Australian Curriculum and we use the Curriculum into the Classroom (C2C) as our major resource. They promote consistency within and across year levels and offer an environment rich in active, investigative and lifelong learning, where students set achievement goals and strive to achieve them. Our School has a Special Education Unit, with the emphasis being on integration into the mainstream classes.

A focus of our programs is the high level of differentiation, to meet students’ needs.

Our Sporting Program includes Physical Education Lessons for all year levels, as well as well-established interschool District and Regional programs. Our Rugby League Development Program is open to boys from Years 4 – 6 and Kruger has had many Grand Final successes in this area. In some years, depending on the availability of coaches, there may be a girls’ team as well.

Students from Prep – Year 6 participate in a specialised Music program and an Instrumental program is also available. We also run Kruger’s Got Talent each year, to showcase our talented students.

To support student’s interests and social development, various Clubs are available for students to participate in at lunch times e.g. singing club, cultural dance club, resilience club, reading club, sports clubs, computer, jewellery club.

I encourage you to keep in regular contact with your child’s teacher and you are always welcome to visit the school to discuss your child’s progress or other aspects of your child’s schooling with myself, the Deputy Principals, Head of Special Education and our Guidance Officer.

The Parent Handbook provides you with some basic information about our school’s operations. Further information can be found on this website under Rules and Policies.

You are also able to keep in touch with the school by attending the monthly Parents & Citizens Meeting or by reading the school’s fortnightly newsletter, which is available via the Website, email or a hard copy which can be requested from the school office.

We are proud of our school and its place in the community and I look forward to you and your family becoming an important part of our school community.
