Our staff are talented educators. They are interested in education and enjoy the intrigue and company of children and teenagers. They walk alongside the students on their learning pathway and together they accept challenges to generate moments of wonder. They ensure the basic skills are covered so that their students will flourish. 

Korowal teachers are passionate writers, artists, sportspeople, musicians, scientists, mathematicians and strategists. Our teachers engage in rigorous discussions around pedagogy, critically appraise education and legislation, and are open to new ideas. They are a creative troupe.

Korowal teachers have beautiful relationships with the students. It has been wonderful to watch my children bond with Teachers in a respectful and nurturing way. My children will cherish the relationships they have had with teachers for years to come.
