Palmerston actively seeks ways to enhance student learning and wellbeing. We do this by partnering with parents and families, other education and training institutions, local businesses and community organisations. Partnerships are strategically established to address identified student needs and operate by providing access to experience, support and intellectual and /or physical resources not available within the school. Palmerston has deliberately and strategically used partnerships to provide additional resources to the school. We have approached this by working with:
Palmerston staff have been driving a strong improvement agenda. We ground this in evidence and practice. Our school is driven by a deep belief that every student is capable of successful learning. We work with many others, but have mentioned only a few community partnerships. The school has set targets in our annual operating plan and school plan for student achievement. We have met with community on our school vision and will continue with this over the school year. With you as our partners, and at times we may have ups and downs, we are working towards maintaining a learning environment that is safe, respectful, tolerant, and inclusive and that promotes intellectual rigour. We are using the National School Improvement Tool to assist us on this journey. Thanks for supporting us and continuing to keep clear lines of communication open in this partnership.
