South Burnett Times - - SOUTH BURNETT SCHOOL NEWS -

BLACK­BUTT State School has been awarded a Re­gional Com­men­da­tion in the Show­case 2017 Awards for Ex­cel­lence in Schools.

The Re­gional Com­men­da­tion was part of the Net­work Ten Show­case Awards for Ex­cel­lence in the Early and Pri­mary Years.

Black­butt State School prin­ci­pal Gayle Williamson said the school re­ceived the com­men­da­tion for The Learn­ing Im­pact of PLIPs – Per­son­alised Learn­ing Im­prove­ment Plans.

The school has PLIPs for each stu­dent, with the plans tar­get­ing stu­dent strengths, mo­ti­va­tors and ar­eas of in­ter­est as well as look­ing at any un­der­ly­ing bar­ri­ers to learn­ing.

Mrs Williamson said the PLIPs looked at per­sonal learn­ing goals, with a fo­cus on ar­eas for im­prove­ment with agreed ed­u­ca­tional goals.

“We also look at strate­gies for im­prove­ment, both at school and at home,’’ she said. “Our fo­cus is on read­ing, at­ten­dance, lit­er­acy, nu­mer­acy, lead­er­ship and sport.

“Our staff work with stu­dents and their par­ents to pro­vide tar­geted sup­port from class teach­ers and teacher aides through a fo­cus on in­ter­ven­tion and en­rich­ment.”
