I am pleased to announce that the St Paul’s School Staff achieved an Excellence in
Learning and Teaching Award for the brilliant work that they do supporting your
children each and every day. The St Paul’s School staff group are a passionate and
hardworking group and they change lives! It is wonderful that they have been
recognized for this award. I have included some photos from the award night in this
newsletter.I have included the award blurb below.
The School Staff Team from St Paul’s Woodridge are passionately committed to
enhancing the learning progress of every student. They are clear in their expectations
of students and regularly collaborate to fine tune their practice to best support
students.St Paul’s School is a complex school with 70% of students considered EALD, with
many of these families having faced adversity and traumatic life experiences as they
were pushed from their home countries as refugees. The challenges faced by the
community are complex, but the St Paul’s School staff team work collaboratively and
tenaciously to best meet the learning and wellbeing needs of their students. This
involves the implementation of practices and a philosophy around student support
that is grounded in hope and best practice, such that staff consider the whole child
when they are responding to issues.
Through the St Paul’s Community Hub, staff respond to the needs of our parents and
carers, through programs and engagement activities to ensure that families are
suitably equipped to support their children to attend school. If parents/carers don’t
have the means to support their children in their school journey, St Paul’s staff are
committed to linking parents/carers into the support services that they require.
The Staff of St Paul’s Catholic Primary School are an outstanding group of people who
work tirelessly to support each and every child. The staff are examples of committed,
compassionate and professional educators who strive to improve their practice to
support the students in their care. The teachers are the modern-day example of Mary
Mackillop in their unerring commitment to give their students the best possible start
in life through their primary education. The St Paul’s staff group are an outstanding
group of educators who are absolutely deserving of receiving this award.
