Annual Goal #1: Junior Curriculum

We will continue to implement the IB MYP in years 7-10.  Faculties will implement and evaluate one year 9 unit in 2022, and plan for a full MYP programme in 2023.  We will also investigate interdisciplinary units.

Annual Goal #2: Positive Behaviour

We will implement Tier 1 of the PB4L framework.  We will agree our core values and translate these into behaviour expectations, set systems for recording data to support decision making, and establish practices to support students.

Annual Goal #3: Community and Wellbeing

We will foster a positive working and learning environment.  We will be kind and have fun.
