Our key foci this year is to:

  • Embed our LEARN Instructional Model in all classrooms
  • Develop data walls so all students are challenged at their point of need
  • Develop a 2025 STEM academy

These strategies will ensure we are continuing to increase learning growth of all students.

STEM and Senior Learning Centre

At last the STEM and Senior Learning Centre (SLC for short) is open!  All the delays and frustration are all worthwhile when you see the students’ excitement and pride shine on their face and in their body language.  Students and staff have settled in well and there has been some amazing learning experiences already.

In a few weeks’ time we will be offering a guided tour for parents and carers.  Stay tuned for this information.
