Today was our School Review Validation Day, the first of our three Review Days. We welcomed Libby Tuball (Reviewer – Monash University), Coralee Pratt (Senior Education Instructional Leader) and our Challenge Partners, Nicole Richards (Principal – Elwood Primary) and Neven Paleka (Principal – South Yarra Primary).
The conversations focussed around our performance against the goals and targets of our 2016-2019 School Strategic Plan, the enablers and barriers to success and our key achievements and challenges.
The Review team visited classrooms and were delighted with what they saw, heard and experienced! Our children were incredible as they articulated their learning so clearly and confidently.
Further discussion was held around our school’s proficiency status against the FISO Continua for School Improvement. By the end of the day we had developed the focus questions and methodology for the review.
On Friday, parents, children and staff will be involved in workshops with the Review Team and further classrooms visits will be undertaken.
