TWIN Rivers is primed for the modern education era with the establishment of a student wellbeing team at the new school.
The team utilises a variety of services such as counselling, learning assessments, psychological intervention, behaviour management programs and parent support programs.
Co-principal Andrew Judd said the school recognised children had different learning needs, that needed to be monitored.
“A child’s learning can be affected by many things including inappropriate behaviours. These are managed by the wellbeing team through our school-wide positive behaviour support program,” he said.
“This program ensures all children have the right to learn and take responsibility to behave in an acceptable manner.
“Parents are expected to maintain a strong partnership with the school in monitoring and supporting their child’s development as well.”
Co-principal Karl Stenning said the school’s mission, vision and values were important to establishing standards at the new school.
“Our mission is to create a community learning environment where everyone can learn to the best of their ability,” he said.
“Our values of respect, inclusion and resilience help to set expectations of staff and students.
“We aim to create engaged, confident students who are motivated and excited to learn with the help of positive, professional staff.
“We’re building a community that values strong partnerships between home and school and within the community.”
