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 highlights

80s Flashback

At the end of Term 3, our Primary School staff and students got “Into the Groove” with an 80s Flashback dress up day.  It was great to see so many staff and students dressed up in “True Colours”, being “Footloose” in the undercover area, doing the “Locomotion” and “Flashdance”, showing off their best dance moves.  All in all it was a wonderful, fun-filled way to end a busy term, an event hopefully to be repeated “Time After Time”...

 

New Families Morning Tea

Earlier this term, the Primary Campus hosted a Morning Tea for new families to the College. It was a pleasure to see so many new and friendly faces join our College community. Thank you to Mrs Dymock who arranged a lovely morning.
