Writing Up A Storm At Perth Primary School

Perth Primary School, TAS

Perth Primary School is nearly 200 years old and enrols 270 children in a village 20km south of Launceston. It has worked hard over recent years to improve student outcomes, introducing initiatives to improve teaching practice in maths and spelling. But in writing, students are yet to reach their potential and the school has identified a need to build its teachers' capacity to teach this key skill.

The school will use its newly-established Professional Learning Community structure to underpin whole-staff training in the most effective methods of teaching writing. The program will include professional development (including with external experts), regular feedback for teachers through observations of classroom practice and teacher release time to enable teachers to collaborate and develop mentor/mentee relationships. Teachers will also build capacity to differentiate lesson to target students at their level of need, including for students with additional learning needs or disabilities.

The school aims to increase the proportion of students achieving at A and B levels in writing and improve teachers' confidence and skills in explicitly teaching writing. Your support will help fund the costs of training and teacher release time needed to make this project a success, as well as a number of student excursions to local historical sites to provide exciting experiences for students to write about.
