Academic Support

Academic Support

The Principal and Deputy Principal of Curriculum coordinate the Curriculum content and assessment processes across the College.

All students at Austin Cove Baptist College are welcomed into a positive learning environment.  The aim of the College is to support every student and help them to engage with learning both inside and outside the classroom.  In order to support students to develop academically, a number of processes have been put in place to determine areas of each individual student’s weaknesses and strengths.

All students are tested in Literacy and Numeracy skills within the first four weeks of the academic year.  This involves PATR testing, South Australian Spelling Test and benchmark reading tests.  The results of these tests indicate students whose achievements are above or below the expected year level and enables staff to adjust programmes to accommodate and support individuals with their academic achievements.

 

Primary Goings On

Artist of the Week - Jack Birch

Hi, my name is JACK BIRCH.

I’m in Year 1C and my teacher is Mrs Bond. I started at ACBC in Kindy in 2015. At School, I really enjoy Art with Mrs Tie.

I love playing AFL football and when I’m older I'd like to be a football player. At home, I like to play football with my brother Max. My favourite AFL team is the Eagles.

My favourite colour is blue because it is an Eagles Team colour.

Primary students recently planted 200 tree seedlings at the High School Campus.

The seedlings were supplied by Men of the Trees in Rockingham, and a team from Bunnings Halls Head helped to plant 12 established trees. A big thanks to Mandurah Toyota for their support in providing prizes and tree guards.

Recently a group of very excited students headed off to Jandakot Airport, Bounce and Hungry Jacks for their Principal’s Mystery Tour with Mrs Bowen and Mr Newby. The students were a delight to take away and were fine ambassadors for the school. Congratulations to these students and our larger group of children who achieved their CPR star in the first semester.
