SVA is a philanthropic group who support low SES schools to accelerate improvement of student learning outcomes. We were nominated by DECD because of our TfEL Pilot work and selected as a ‘Star Hub’ school by SVA, one of six in SA.
At the beginning of Week 6, Rita, Anne, Riley W, Samuel and Coen attended a two day ‘Thought Leadership Gathering’ at the Adelaide Zoo with schools from NSW and Victoria. South Australia is at the fore-front of the development of student voice and it was interesting to share our work with other schools and hear what they are doing.
Dandenong West Primary School, in NSW is sending 4 teachers over in Term 3 to spend 2 days here observing and learning about our school.
This is very exciting and we will use this to give our students opportunities to communicate in public forums with other adults.
