Oxley Primary School Oxley Primary School is committed to offering the very best educational opportunities available to rural students.
In 2020, the school continues with a strong focus on developing literacy and numeracy skills of all students and taking every opportunity to embed these skills across a wide range of specialist subject areas and real-life scenarios.
This year Oxley Primary School will achieve the following outcomes:
•Continue with our educational excellence by engaging Dianne Siemon, Professor of Mathematics Education in the School of Education at RMIT. Di has extensive experience in research and teaching in teacher education not only in Australia but worldwide. Di will work extensively with our staff to continue to develop excellence in teaching mathematics.
•Celebrate student’s individual growth with their parents and their teachers early in Term 4. Students will have the opportunity to present their Digital Portfolios showing their growth across a wide range of areas in school life.
•Empowering students with Student Voice and Student Leadership skills. We will continue to support student development to raise awareness about what students are learning, the process of their deep thinking and how they might be able to use this learning in real-life scenarios. Our focus is to have our students using the language of learning. This involves teachers and students changing the way they speak together in class.
•Continue to provide an environment in which students train to be independent, self-managing, self-motivated learners in persistent pursuit of their personal best and able to get along with each other. We will continue our journey with Wilson Mackaskill, an International Behaviour Educationalist.
•To support our students who require a smaller group teaching experience, we offer a MacqLit program, 3 times a week.
•Offer an opportunity for strong parent engagement, with our parents not only participating across a wide range of events but also ensuring they are vital components in their child’s learning journey.
•Continue to build on our after school care and vacation care program to deliver a service that supports families outside of school hours.
•Continue to enrich the opportunities our students have in being able to extend them throughout the year with a wide range of specialist programs, which include Physical Education and Well-being, Science and Library, Italian, Music, Art, BluEarth and Yoga. This year we are also embarking on the ‘Stephanie Alexander’ Garden and Kitchen program, Rock and Water program and Catching Them Early. This is an exciting time at OPS.
•Join with Milawa Primary School to run another very successful Milawa/ Oxley Fox Run event, which celebrates families competing together.
