Woy Woy gains an extra teacher

Woy Woy Public School has gained an extra teacher due to large numbers in its Kindergarten to Year 2 classes.

"We now have 17 classes in our mainstream setting from Kindergarten to Year 6," said principal Ms Ona Buckley.

"We are pleased that 4T have moved into their new demountable classroom - such a lovely space in a lovely area of our grounds and they have the best air conditioning in the school. Lucky 4T.

"A great improvement to our Preschool grounds is coming and our 2018 Pre-schoolers will be the first to enjoy it.

"Meanwhile our Preschool is using other outdoor areas to ensure compliance with outdoor/indoor space is being maintained," Ms Buckley said.

"There are a few staff changes and some wonderful new innovative programs in place.

"Mr Dan Betts remains our student well-being assistant principal off class and is available to discuss student wellbeing and inappropriate behaviour concerns with parents and carers as part of his role.

"Ms Janine Szostak is off class in 2018 as an instructional leader for our school.

"Her role is to support teachers through professional learning and development to strengthen classroom teaching and management, thus enhancing educational outcomes for all our students.

"Ms Kate Lord will once again be working as a L3 trainer for the Gosford network of schools in 2018.

"She will be off class on her three days allocated here at our school as an instructional leader for Language Literacy and Learning (L3), Targeting Early Numeracy (TEN) and introducing and developing teacher knowledge in progressions as our school is a supplementary school for the state wide introduction to the new process.

"Progressions are the updated version of Plan and the Literacy and Numeracy Continuums.

"This will enable teachers to plot students where they are achieving in Literacy and Numeracy outcomes so they can better plan teaching delivery to suit individual student and group needs.

"Ms Louise Rayner will be off class four days per week to support student wellbeing through intensive work for students in Year 3 to 6 where Naplan results have shown they need extra support in some areas of Literacy or Numeracy.

She will professionally support teachers with teaching strategies and ideas in creative arts and will run Rock and Water and Seasons for Growth programs for students having difficulty with social skills or students who have experienced loss and trauma.

"Ms Rayner will also support students who have English as a second language in partnership with Ms Jenny Keene who will be supporting new arrival students at our school.

"New arrival students are students who enrol at our school who speak little or no English and need intensive support in adjusting to a new environment and language.

"Ms Chloe Nebauer will be working Wednesday and Thursday in 2018 as the Aboriginal Early Intervention Teacher and Aboriginal Family Support Preschool to Year 6.

"Ms Sue McLean is our early intervention teacher working three days a week using her L3, TEN and Reading Recovery expertise to support individual and groups of children with their learning in Literacy and Numeracy.

"Ms Deidre Hauraki is new to our school this year, teaching 5/6H.

"Mr Greg Curran is teaching 5/6C.

"Mr Kerrie Stewart remains on leave.

"We wish her well and hope she returns to us soon," Ms Buckley said.
