Our funded school initiatives

Initiative 1

Funding our home to school transition program called Busy Buzzy Learners. This involves employing staff so that students attend for a full day each week for 10 weeks. The program runs terms 1-4.

Impact and achievements

This has allowed the school to build strong relationships with students and families early on as well as identifying needs before students start school, assisting the Learning Support teacher to develop strategies and apply for funding or placement early.

Initiative 2

Purchasing iPads so that all student have access to a device. We are now a 1:1 school K-6.

Impact and achievements

This has allowed students to use cutting edge technology to engage in the curriculum and opportunities to publish to authentic global audiences. It also provides opportunities for staff and students to collaborate beyond the hours of the school day.

Initiative 3

Providing all staff with a pedagogical coach and providing both with in class support and reflection time.

Impact and achievements

This has provided staff with personalised professional learning which focuses on inquiry and student engagement.
