Annual Report to the School Community
This year our school curriculum focus continued to be the implementation of Explicit Direct Instruction. This has required the teachers incorporating differentiation strategies to ensure all students are learning as best they can. In the second year of EDI implementation we have seen continued strong results in English and other learning areas where the pedagogy is being taught. I am pleased to report that in the most recent NAPLAN testing every English value in Years 3 and 5 improved, some significantly. This is a testimony to how the teaching staff at St Mary’s have embraced and implemented this pedagogy.
