Ms Sanderson vis­ited the school last Wed­nes­day to present the top award for a pri­mary school in the State.

She said the school showed ex­cel­lence in all four out­comes of science, tech­nol­ogy, en­gi­neer­ing and maths.

“Ros­alie Pri­mary School is to be con­grat­u­lated for its ex­cel­lent teach­ing of the im­por­tant STEM sub­jects,” she said.

“The judges con­cluded that stu­dent re­sults at the school show the lev­els of en­gage­ment and out­come to be out­stand­ing at the pri­mary school level.

“With fore­casts in­di­cat­ing that 75 per cent of the fastest grow­ing jobs in the fu­ture will re­quire STEM skills.”

Ros­alie Pri­mary School prin­ci­pal Roslyn Kay said the STEM sub­jects were em­bed­ded in the school and pre­par­ing stu­dents for fu­ture em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.

“The school and com­mu­nity are ex­cep­tion­ally proud of this achieve­ment,” she said.

“These sub­jects are em­bed­ding in ev­ery­thing we do and are im­por­tant in pre­par­ing these kids for fu­ture em­ploy­ment.”

Win­ners: Ros­alie Pri­mary school stu­dents Chas Un­der­wood, So­phie Kirk, Abbey Ma­jor and Zaine Thorp with class teacher Michael Webb, prin­ci­pal Roslyn Kay and Gov­er­nor Kerry Sanderson.
