Critical & Creative Thinking

Eugowra Public School, NSW

Eugowra Public School is a small school of 32 students, one of five primary schools in a ‘small schools network’ centred around Forbes in Central West NSW. Most of the schools have only one or two teachers. To overcome the disadvantage of their size and regional location, the schools work together to provide experiences for students that children in larger schools have (such as sporting or science activities) and on teacher professional learning. The schools share a joint strategic direction, including a goal to develop students’ skills in critical and creative thinking.

Following some professional learning in STEM, critical thinking and coding over the past year, staff at the five schools are eager and ready to incorporate STEM learning activities in their lessons across Kindergarten-Year 6.

Your support would help generate a positive shift in teaching practice through a two-year program of staff training, collaborative planning and feedback and the creation of a technology resource library. As the new activities are embedded across the curriculum, students will take a leading role as peer mentors and parents will be involved through workshops run by teachers. Funding would support: 

professional development in the delivery of STEM through Department of Education training, external consultants and internal professional learning days 

the purchase of equipment including laptops/iPads, robotics kits including Beebots and Spheros, and other resources to support the STEM activities. These would be shared between the schools. 

travel costs to enable the students and staff to join together for educational experiences, training, lesson planning and other activities. 

The schools in this cluster are Eugowra Public School, Bogan Gate Public School, Bedgerebong Public School, Caragabal Public School and Quandilla Public School.
