About Keilor Views Primary School

The school is an inclusive educational setting that prides itself on the delivery of a quality curriculum based on the principles of visible learning. The school is building assessment capable learners, ‘when teachers see learning through the eyes of their students and students see themselves as their own teachers’ they become highly visible learners together.

Keilor Views Primary School holds high expectations of all stakeholders in the learning process. We support this through our ‘Effective Learner Qualities’.

Determined Show purpose, make decisions, have intentions
Persist Show continued effort, have a go, never give up
Use Feedback Take on advice, set goals, work forward
Reflect Think seriously, wonder and question, consider
Connect Link learning, associate and relate things

This is equally supported in our wellbeing approach and support through our community values of Vision, Integrity and Pride.

The National Simultaneous Storytime Read 2017

The National Simultaneous Storytime is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association. Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country.

By facilitating National Simultaneous Storytime, we aim to:

  • promote the value of reading and literacy;
  • promote the value and fun of books;
  • promote an Australian writer and publisher;
  • promote story time activities in public libraries and communities around the country;
  • provide opportunities to involve parents, grandparents, the media and others to participate in and enjoy the occasion.

This year KVPS participated in National Simultaneous Storytime Read on Monday 29th May at 10.30am. We shared The Cow Tripped Over the Moon written by Tony Wilson and illustrated by Laura Wood.
