At the beginning of each school year the school community sets short term goals based on our School Renewal Plan. These goals focus on aspects of the curriculum, resourcing, community building, administration and capital works/maintenance.
Professional development priorities align with the yearly school curriculum goals. In 2014 our staff have accessed a wide range of professional development opportunities to further develop their understanding of literacy and mathematical development in young people and to implement a range of technologies in their teaching and learning activities. We have determined that our priorities for professional development will focus on Visile Learning, Design Thinking and Kidsmatter.
The staff has continued its professional learning in understanding the Presentation Sisters' Charism and how it may be applied to the school setting. The continuation of the CTK Mini Vinnies has been a direct result of this professional learning.
Professional sharing opportunities to discuss student performance levels with other schools in our local area have also be prioritised for 2015.
