Moss­man Pri­mary goes up a size with new class

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - @SCHOOL -

MOSS­MAN Pri­mary School has added a new class this year, 2A, to cater for higher num­bers.

With that has come a new teacher, Ms Tiarna Caltabi­ano, and new aide, Ms Naomi Tay­lor .

“Fam­i­lies are start­ing to choose our school, which is great for us. We are see­ing higher num­bers,” said head of teach­ing and learn­ing, Sharon Case.

“The per­cep­tion of our school is that it’s a good school, a good place for kids to learn. We have highly skilled teach­ers and our re­sults have spo­ken for them­selves. We’ve had good re­sults across the board.

Last week the four stu­dent lead­ers at the school went to a lead­er­ship work­shop for the Dou­glas clus­ter of schools, held at Lake Ti­na­roo.

Stay­ing at the Ti­na­roo En­vi­ron­men­tal Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre, the chil­dren – Kian Byrne, Tyson Crees, Jack Pot­ter and Zara Soltwedel – took part in ex­er­cises that worked on the prac­ti­cal el­e­ments of lead­er­ship such as team­work and the abil­ity to eval­u­ate sit­u­a­tions.
