Schools get ex­tra fund­ing

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS -

NEW Nor­folk schools have been named among 38 across Tas­ma­nia set to re­ceive ad­di­tional fund­ing for lit­er­acy and nu­mer­acy pro­grams in 2018.

As part of the Govern­ment’s Mid­dle Years Project, a se­lec­tion panel ap­proved eight as­so­ci­a­tions rep­re­sent­ing 38 schools for fund­ing in a meet­ing last month.

New Nor­folk schools that will re­ceive ad­di­tional fund­ing in­clude Fairview Pri­mary School, New Nor­folk High School and New Nor­folk Pri­mary School.

Ed­u­ca­tion and Train­ing Min­is­ter Jeremy Rock­liff said the fund­ing would pro­vide ad­di­tional lit­er­acy and nu­mer­acy sup­port for Govern­ment schools with an em­pha­sis on grades four to eight and the tran­si­tion from years six to seven.

“The fund­ing is allowing them to drive im­proved lead­er­ship prac­tices, ac­cess­ing tai­lored pro­fes­sional learn­ing and pro­vid­ing ac­cess to re­sources to sup­port im­proved teach­ing and learn­ing,” Mr Rock­liff said.
