Principal's Message

   

An Educational Alternative

 

At Currawa we are fortunate to have a very congenial group of families. The sense of belonging experienced within this small group gives our children an insight into the importance of community. Parents are actively involved in their children's education and are very welcome at the school.

 

Currawa is "a perfect learning environment" and as such if you are seeking to place your child in a school next year we would be pleased to invite you for a tour of our facilities and a casual chat. The school has access to and regularly uses the University of Melbourne facilities on the Dookie Campus. Access to a large hall for the school concert and visiting performers, as well as, the pool, tennis, basketball and squash courts ensures that all student needs and interests are met.

 

As well as a comprehensive integrated program we have a strong commitment to the teaching of basic skills in Literacy and Numeracy, using the Early Years teaching approaches in Years Prep - 4. A low student teacher ratio ensures that all students are catered for and their progress can be closely monitored with every student having their own 'Individual Learning Program'. We have a very strong focus on Science and we run a Mandarin program that focuses on speaking, reading, writing and culture. Students have access to a wide and varied array of ICT such as iPads, iPods, digital microscopes and camera’s, as well as all students having access to their own computer. Visiting teachers and tutors in the areas of Art, Library, and Music round off the educational program.

 

During term 4, we are offering transition days, where children interested in our school are encouraged to attend and experience the schools unique culture for themselves. For more information, please contact the principal on (03) 5828 6581 or 0427 715 219.
