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.

What Youngtown Primary could do with Gonski funding in the future

  • Significantly increase capacity for targeted individual and small group interventions for children at risk in literacy, numeracy and/or mental health and wellbeing. Includes the provision of more alternative learning opportunities provided by increasing staffing.
  • Expand the reach of those evidence-based intervention programs for literacy and numeracy that are already making a difference to our lowest academic achievers.
  • Extend the opportunities available to challenge our most able students.
  • Employ additional teaching staff to enable a ‘coaching/mentoring’ approach to teacher professional learning. This highly effective learning model requires a level of resource that is currently not available.
