At Korowal, our teachers are story-tellers. They share stories of their own, and retell the stories of others. Teachers weave together ideas, perspectives and journeys alongside their students in each lesson. Their classrooms, boards, and daily routines are effectively the storylines for each day and each learning experience - using language, music and visual art to engage and connect their students.

Our school community holds a great diversity of individual perspectives, and this requires a space that is respectively open-minded, inclusive and kind. Our teachers are the students’ mentors to assist with the problem-solving, skill-building and dialogue needed to work together.

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.
