En­thu­si­asm for learn­ing

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

MONTO State School of­fers a pos­i­tive team en­vi­ron­ment for your child’s ed­u­ca­tion.

There is great en­thu­si­asm for learn­ing and it is a team ef­fort in the progress made by stu­dents.

The school of­fers a LOTE pro­gram of Ja­panese for Years 6–7 for 90 min­utes a week, while younger stu­dents re­ceive 60 min­utes per week of Ja­panese cul­ture.

This is de­liv­ered by a mo­ti­vated Ja­panese teacher.

The school also has a mu­sic cur­ricu­lum with Years 4–7 taught in­stru- men­tal mu­sic.

Year 7 stu­dents have a camp al­ter­nat­ing be­tween five days in Bris­bane one year and North Kep­pel En­vi­ron­men­tal Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre in the other year.

As part of the National Cur­ricu­lum, Monto State School fo­cuses on the ex­plicit teach­ing strat­egy. Great pride is taken in the anti-bul­ly­ing pro­gram, this re­lates to the five keys to suc­cess which are; con­fi­dence, resi- lience, get­ting along, per­sis­tence and or­gan­i­sa­tion.

There is ac­tive af­ter school care avail­able, with ac­tiv­i­ties such as soft­ball and ath­let­ics.

With an eye to your child’s fu­ture, there is a good re­la­tion­ship with Monto State High School, par­tic­u­larly with the drama stu­dents.

Monto State School re­ally does pro­vide a well-rounded learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for your child.
