St Michael's School has been given the opportunity to participate in the Low Socio-economic Status School Communities National Partnership. This is a state-wide program involving government and non-government schools and represents significant funding from the Commonwealth Government to New South Wales schools, as well as a co-contribution from the State Government. Common to all schools in this National Partnership is the clear aim of making a difference to the educational outcomes of all students. This partnership is of four years duration, and will evolve during that time. The reforms of the partnership in the School Implementation Plan include:
Reform 1. Incentives to attract high-performing teachers and principals
Reform 2. Providing innovative and tailored learning opportunities
Reform 6. External partnerships with parents, other schools, businesses and communities and the provision of access to extended services
School staff will participate in a school leadership program, providing the opportunity to explore in greater depth what good learning looks like. Teachers will engage in ongoing professional learning in order to build capacity to deliver consistent, high quality instruction.
