Thank you to everyone for a great Term 3, particularly to our Students and Teachers who have had an extremely busy term with Sports Carnivals, Book Week Parade, Basketball Incursions, The Big Vegie Crunch Day and NCVISSA Carnivals. Please stay safe and have a restful school holiday break. The last day of Term 3 is Friday, 24th September and we look forward to seeing you all back at school on Monday, 11th October.
School Business Plan
- Our School Business Plan has been a work in progress for a little while, however it is now finalised. Our School Focus Areas for the 2021 – 2023 Business Plan are:
- Success for all Students – with a focus on effective delivery of the West Australian curriculum, targeted Literacy programs, the introduction of an Explicit teaching pedagogy, integrated use of ICT and STEAM and individual pathways for our secondary students
- High Quality Teaching and Learning – emphasising teachers working collaboratively to support our students, Professional Learning in Explicit Instructional approaches and an increase in data analysis to support school priorities
- Culture, Community and Care – renewing the effort on the importance of Daily Attendance, increasing community engagement with the school, supporting individual students who require support and increasing our relationships with external agencies.
Our school business plan can now be found on the school website, via schools online and hard copies in the front office.
School Development Day
We are trying something a little different this year and having our School Development Day later in Term 4, on Monday 8thNovember. On School Development Days, schools are expected to review how they are going, in terms of meeting the targets we set for student learning, as well as reviewing strategies and the various aspects of school operations we have in place to ensure we meet those targets.
