Achievement and success is something we strive toward for all of our students, irrespective of the point at which they have begun their educational journey.
Success is hard fought and won and we celebrate personal achievements on a daily basis. Our students are supported by a vast array of learning enrichment approaches including one-on-one and small group tutoring, in class support, reading rescue, individualised programs, outside therapy services, and collaborative teaching support. We aim to encourage all children to achieve their personal best through support and extension, meeting each child where they are and growing their ability through individualised programmes. It is common to walk into the staffroom and hear a teacher gushing joyously about the latest DRA result or maths achievement of one of the students that they have been working with. The reward of knowing that you have made a significant difference to a child cannot be measured.
The Learning Enrichment team is made up of three specialist teachers, six teacher aides and a host of volunteers. Our volunteers come from all walks of life; we have parents, congregational members, friends from the local retirement facilities, and even a couple of university students with some spare time on their hands. When you consider that we are only a small school of approximately 260 students, we are so blessed to have so many wonderful people supporting our students and teachers. The African proverb ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ is never more true than in a place like our school. Parents, teachers, support staff and volunteers join together to shape the hearts, heads and lives of a very special group of children.
