​​​​School Improvement Plan

Our School Improvement Plan has 4 key areas for the 2015-16 School Year, as follows:
1) Numeracy
2) Literacy
3) Blended Learning 
4) Self-Regulation

We are focused on implementing strategies designed to help our students SHOW their THINKING in Mathematics this year.  
Our student achievement data reveals that students will benefit from working collaboratively and individually to solve problems and to stretch their thinking as they do this.  
We are committed to ensuring that our students continue to achieve high levels of success in all of their learning, with a particular focus on thinking and problem-solving in Math. 
We continue to ensure that Literacy across the curriculum is a strong focus this year too.  We work as a team to ensure that students K-8 have a strong foundation in reading, writing, listening and speaking.  Teachers work to identify each student's reading level, areas of need, and interests and subsequently use strategies to help them advance, learn and develop.
We continue to focus on Blended Learning and the use of technology and digital tools to support learning in the classroom and at home.  All students have access to various devices, tools and strategies to help them learn and demonstrate their learning.  
Our Primary Team is focused on implementing various strategies to help students self-regulate.  We understand that this is a key to student readiness to learning, to positive relationships and to development.  Self-regulation involves skills that can be practiced and learned and we are committed to embedding strategies to help students in all of our classes, with a strong foundation in Primary.
Teachers meet regularly to engage in discussion, reflection, collaboration and planning to help all students achieve at a high level.  
It is our goal to ensure that all students achieve their God-given potential inside and outside of the classroom.
