History


School Motto: The school's current motto of 'Building The Foundations for Success and Happiness' replaced the original motto of  'Empowerment and Excellence in Education for all' in 2015.


Kismet Park Primary school is situated in a housing estate near the historic Kismet House at Sunbury which is about 37 kilometres from Melbourne.

Kismet Park Primary School No. 5180 commenced in February 1980 with an enrolment of 233 pupils, hosted by Sunbury Primary School at their Macedon Street Site.  Our school’s name, Kismet Park, was derived from the Rupert Clarke horse training facility in the district, and the logo was designed by Miss Shelly Lambert, a then pupil of the school, as winner of a Grade 5 & 6 “design the logo” competition.

 

On 12 December 1980, the school moved to the new buildings at the present location with 235 pupils.  The buildings consisted of the central “core” of administration, library, art room, and multi purpose room, with four relocatable classrooms attached to give eight classrooms and open galleries joining the activity areas. The school was officially opened on 4th December 1981.

 

Our school community strives to provide a positive,  stimulating and secure learning environment where we cater for the needs of each student as an individual. We do this by creating a caring atmosphere that reinforces mutual respect, promotes self-esteem and develops a sense of belonging to our school. We value teamwork, effective communication, informed decision making and community involvement. We promote professional learning and networking for our staff to ensure delivery of excellent and consistent educational programs through exemplary professional practices.

 

Kismet Park has a strong focus on developing a positive educational partnership within the school and with the community. The school also actively networks with other local primary & secondary schools. The school is well supported by an effective School Council and a very active Parents & Teachers Association.
