Student participation in decision making is actively promoted through open communication with all students and in particular our School Leaders. Students are involved in organising and arranging playtime activities. Assemblies are held twice per term and are well attended by parents/caregivers and community members. Our School Leaders host our assemblies. Assemblies provide our students with the opportunity to showcase their work and share their successes. Our students help to run the school by feeding the chooks, watering our garden and caring for our environment. Our School Leaders run our ‘Grab n Go’ Toast on Monday and Friday mornings.
We currently have 28 enrolments. Most students and their families live within 5kms of our school. We offer a bus service at a minimal cost.
Children’s wellbeing is central to all we do, because we know that being holistically healthy is vital for learning and leading a rewarding life. We use Mindfulness and Berry Street programs to nurture happy, balanced students through mental health promotion, prevention and early intervention and planning. The Child Protection Curriculum is mandated within our programming. We have a termly theme e.g. Teamwork Makes the Dreamwork to help us develop our student’s skills in areas such as kindness, growth mindset, teamwork and resilience.
We have a fantastic Pastoral Care Worker who works at the school for 12 hours a week. Jolie Zadow is available to support our students, staff and/or families with any issues or concerns they may be facing.
