Aboriginal Education

 

The number of enrolments remained the same throughout last year with 10 Aboriginal students.  We had one year 7 student transition to Naracoorte High School in 2015.  This student was supported with extra transitional visits to ensure that their educational and social needs were established.

Thank you to staff for their continued support in establishing and implementing individual learning plans for each of our Aboriginal students.  Also, for providing information for the on-line reporting system “Getting Them on Track”.  Both of these provide an opportunity for staff and parents to discuss strategies to best support learning needs of students.

The school is very supportive in celebrating national events such as Reconciliation and NAIDOC week with various in class activities that include story telling and art.  Harmony Day was a whole school gathering in the town square with other local schools.  Displays were put together showcasing our diverse multi-cultural community.

Lucas Proudfoot, Aboriginal cultural performer, visited during Reconciliation Week and provided cultural education through music, song and story sharing.  He displayed a number of musical instruments and asked for student participation to help play them and dance to the music.
