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 Sorell School could do with Gonski funding in the future
- Provide more targeted intervention and support for Literacy and Numeracy Programs across the school.
- Achieve smaller classes.
- Employ additional Teacher Assistants to support our students most in need.
- Provide on-going Professional Learning for all Staff to be updated on best teaching practice and the implementation of The Australian Curriculum.
- Improve our school environment to make it more welcoming to students and families.
