Since its opening in 1982

Karama School has established itself as an exceptional school in which both families, teachers and students work together to provide the best possible educational experience. At Karama School we recognise that strong relationships between families and the school are critical in helping children get the best from their learning. Our entire team look forward to working with you in this partnership. Your child has already accomplished a great deal of learning when they arrive at Karama School and our goal is to continue to build on this knowledge with them and their families. As a ‘Community of Learners’ children are encouraged to develop as individuals using strategies of intentional and spontaneous learning through play.
