Numeracy Groups

This term our class was fortunate to receive two students (studying primary teaching) from the University of Newcastle to work with a group of students on a numeracy project.



The project involved a series of learning experiences focusing on numeracy within other learning areas. Students enjoyed applying their mathematical knowledge during a PE task, designing a marathon course and also using technology to work out their body mass index. A big thank you to Steve and Taira for their effort and enthusiasm.

Start Smart

On Friday the OC took part in a Start Smart workshop – a program provided by the Commonwealth Bank – which is all about developing students’ understanding of financial literacy.

A big thank you to Heather, who delivered our program. We learnt all about ways young people can earn money, debit and credit cards and interest.
