While we develop every student to reach their potential, we also address a key initiative for us in the education of high achieving students, through whole school commitment to identification and implementation of effective programs. Our intention at Caladenia is that we support all students. It is our duty and responsibility to ensure that every student is afforded high quality opportunities for success.
Caladenia and Wattle Grove Primary Schools, through achieving Independent Public School status in 2012, initiated a Multi-age Academic Class (MAC), which caters for high achieving Years 4, 5 and 6 students from within our school. This class works on lateral and vertical extension of the curriculum.
Our school is characterised by its highly structured nature for effective teaching and learning and whole school decision-making processes. We take a very holistic view in the development of the student through caring, nurturing and building resilience of each child so that they can become excellent citizens in the community. Our classroom block structuring reflects family groupings as a means of recognising the importance of age appropriate distribution of year level placements.
