What has the school done with its Gonski funding?
Unfortunately, schools in Tasmania have not received their full Gonski funding due to a decision by the state government not to pass that funding directly on to schools, and to introduce its own cuts to schools budgets in 2015.
Despite this, the school has big plans for using their extra resources to benefit students.
What Forth Primary School could do with Gonski funding in the future
- An increase in staffing to provide support to struggling learners and extension for high achievers.
- Additional teacher release time to enable our teachers to upskill in the current, best practice learning
- More opportunities for staff to collaboratively plan and increase consistency across all grades
