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

Primary Colour Run

The recent Primary Colour-Run was a fantastic afternoon of fun, water, paint, messy clothes and loud music. With parents ambushing children with water pistols, the local fire-brigade hosing runners down, and a very soapy foam machine we all had such a wonderful time raising funds for the P&F.

Artist of the Week - Oliver Caldwell

Hi my name is Oliver Caldwell.

I’m in Year 5V and my teacher is Mr Lee. I started at ACBC in Year 1.

My family lives on a 16 acre farm and when I'm older I would like to be an Apiarist. I enjoy riding my motor bike around the track on our farm and at school I like Art and Science.

Fathers Day

Week 7 was a special week at Kindy.  We invited our Dad’s, Grandad’s, Pop’s and Poppa’s to Kindy to celebrate Fathers day together.  We all had lots of fun, especially constructing special aeroplanes and taking them on to the oval for a race.  Many thanks go to all our wonderful Fathers for making the afternoon so special.

Primary Inter-House Athletics

The recent Inter-house Athletic Carnival was a wonderful day. Congratulations to the students, parents and teachers for making it such a special day of fun and competition. It was the first time we had our Kindergarten, Pre-Primary and Year One & Two students join the older years. A particular thank you to Miss Shellie King and Mr Gareth Rankin for organising the program and ensuring the day ran so smoothly. See Results HERE

Tree Planting

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.
