My Mission Statement
I aim to foster a caring, safe and positive learning environment for your child.
As your child's Performing Arts Teacher, I will endeavour to ensure that all students feel comfortable and confident in both their social and academic development. This year all children will be encouraged to work to their full potential, ensuring they achieve maximum individual performance.
I personally feel so privileged to have been given the opportunity to implement this new specialist area in 2016 and continue this into 2017, which I am so passionate about.
My current role as Drama Specialist in 2019 is curriculum coordinator for the learning area and full-time Year 6 teacher.
The benefits of children studying and being involved in The Arts has been thoroughly researched with outstanding results. Students achieve higher results, academically, have greater self efficacy and have proven to work more collaboratively from being exposed to drama and its skills.
As a classroom teacher, I had previously strongly embedded The Arts into my own teachings and curriculum. I am now so pleased to do so, in a full time role, at Winthrop Primary School.
The curriculum for The Arts is extensive and quite specific to your child’s year group. I encourage you to look on the Australian Curriculum website to view the outcomes.
I look forward to a happy and rewarding year, as we work together in positive partnership in encouraging your child to continued success in 2017.
