Our school has effectively used our resources to support student learning in the following ways:
Our rich specialist program offers student learning in Visual and Performing Arts, STEM, Physical Education, Sport, LOTE (Italian ) and Musical Instrument tutors.
We employ a School Psychologist who plays an integral role in developing student leadership across the school. An English as an Alternative Language teacher supports our students and a Koorie Education Support Officer helps ensure we have an inclusive culture for all students.
Our Specialist timetable is organised in a way that releases all year level teachers at the same time so they could plan together. Education Support Officers are used for small group daily intensive literacy programs. Yard Duty timetables are set up so teachers can also supervise Play Plan groups, the Wellbeing Space and Lunchtime Clubs for Chess/Uno/Pokémon and Bocce.
Large open learning spaces have been utilised for team teaching across some year levels. Our Learning Centre is used for a range of purposes including a Library and staff professional learning centre. The PERMA Room is located in the BOB Building which offers senior students a space to gather and undertake the Tomorrow Leaders Today program.
Class sizes on average were between 20-25 students.
