About Us - 2017 Annual School Report

 

 

Dear Parents & Community Members

   

It is with great pleasure that I present our Annual School Report.  The 2016 school year has been one of tremendous achievements, all of which have been possible due to the hard work of a dedicated and professional staff and the assistance of a very supportive school community. 

A key element to 2016 was the IPS review and the writing of the 2016 – 2018 business plan.  The school review was a fantastic experience for the staff, school board and community with the school receiving a very favourable report.  This report commended the school on their improvement in attendance rates, the development of the targeted tracking system for all students, the safe and inclusive learning environment and the partnerships with community agencies. 

Following on from the review a new business plan was developed in consultation with the staff, board and wider community. The targets set were very specific and focused on the direction and vision of the school.

Technology was another key area of immense focus during 2016 with 25 new ipads purchased, 4 lap tops and other elements of digital technologies such as Dash and Dot, Osmo and learning enhancing apps. The school developed and implemented a new ICT plan and a skills checklist. Explicit teaching of all new equipment was taught at all levels throughout the year with students presenting work using QR codes and class blogs.

The school board saw a change of leadership as Mr Luke Bayley resigned to move to Geraldton.  Mr Chris King was voted in as Board chair and Mrs Joanne Hirsch, Mr Jeff Curtin and Mrs Leah Leopold were all elected to the Perenjori school board.

Thank you to the many staff, parents and the various community members and groups that continue to support our small school in so many ways.  We value your contributions and commitment towards supporting the school in delivering high quality educational opportunities for all students.

The 2016 Annual Report aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the school’s performance and achievements over the past 12 months. I feel very privileged and proud to have the opportunity to lead such a wonderful school and I look forward to continued collaboration in 2017 to provide the best learning opportunities for our students at Perenjori Primary School.
