Welfare and personal development: Teachers remain involved with their classes for several years. Multiple-age learning groups provide a flexible and nurturing academic and social environment. Specialist resource and counselling staff assist students with special needs. Korowal is a small, supportive community where teachers, students and parents know each other and welfare issues are not overlooked.

Special features: Korowal is a human-centred school. This means that emphasis is placed on the quality of relationships between teachers, students and parents; this is seen as the foundation of educational outcomes. The school is small (250 students from Kindergarten to HSC) in order to facilitate learning and the development of friendships across all age groups. A unique curriculum integrates creativity with academic work and uses extended “main lesson” and “focus study” topics to transcend traditional subject boundaries. Extended morning lesson times encourage the study of topics in depth. Multiple-age learning groups provide a flexible and dynamic learning environment. The HSC is taught via the compressed Pathways system. Classes begin in term four, and the workload and examinations are spread evenly over two or more years.
