Learn­ing at school

“AGE-ap­pro­pri­ate ped­a­go­gies are shap­ing the way we teach and learn at Tieri State School now and into the fu­ture,” prin­ci­pal of Tieri State School since 2015 Sarah-Jane Clark said.

She has a strong teach­ing and learn­ing phi­los­o­phy that be­lieves chil­dren learn best when they are ac­tively en­gaged in pur­pose­ful learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences.

While most schools fo­cus solely on Ex­plicit In­struc­tion Ped­a­gogy, Tieri State School is mak­ing the move to­wards recog­nis­ing teach­ers as pro­fes­sion­als who can mod­ify their skills to bring out the best in their stu­dents by adapt­ing the teach­ing and learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties they use to de­liver the Aus­tralian Cur­ricu­lum.

■ Stu­dents in 1/2S with Miss Brooke Scar­bor­ough have turned their class­room into a zoo and have be­come zookeep­ers to show what they were learn­ing about in­for­ma­tion re­ports in English.

To­gether the class has re­searched, high­lighted and have writ­ten a va­ri­ety of in­for­ma­tion re­ports about many dif­fer­ent an­i­mals.

Stu­dents in 3M with Miss Casey Mal­com­son have so far sur­vived the heat.

In Sci­ence this term, the class has been work­ing up a sweat in­ves­ti­gat­ing heat en­ergy.

The stu­dents have en­joyed the more hands on ap­proach to their learn­ing through in­ves­ti­ga­tions and in­quiries to ex­plore top­ics such as heat sources, mea­sur­ing tem­per­a­ture and are get­ting ready to test their so­lar ovens to cook some s’mores.

Stu­dent coun­cil news

THIS year, the school formed their Year 6 Stu­dent Coun­cil, which has met ev­ery Mon­day dur­ing first break. Miss Hughes and Mrs Krause sup­ported the stu­dents this year and worked on lead­er­ship skills and fundrais­ing ideas.

As a re­sult, the Tieri State School Stu­dent Coun­cil has helped or­gan­ise and sup­port many school, com­mu­nity and P&C events, which is an out­stand­ing ef­fort for only 16 stu­dents.

Most of the fundrais­ing gen­er­ated by the school’s Stu­dent Coun­cil is go­ing to­wards the school’s strate­gic plan­ning to in­stall fans into their pop­u­lar, but ex­cep­tion­ally hot, school hall.

The Stu­dent Coun­cil is hop­ing for another cou­ple of sunny Fri­day af­ter­noons be­fore the end of the school year to in­crease their fundrais­ing, which is cur­rently sit­ting about $600.

If you would like to donate to­wards the school’s project for in­stalling fans into their school hall, please feel free to phone Tieri State School on 4981 7555 or email ad­[email protected]

Day for Daniel

ON FRI­DAY, Oc­to­ber 26, stu­dents, staff and par­ents walked from the Tieri Shop­ping Cen­tre to the school gate in recog­ni­tion and re­mem­brance of Day for Daniel.

Par­tic­i­pates car­ried red bal­loons and wore red to show that they were par­tic­i­pat­ing and sup­port­ive of Day for Daniel.

“Child safety is ev­ery­one’s busi­ness and ev­ery­one has the right to be safe,” Miss Clark said.
