In 2017 we have made the commitment that ‘All students will achieve a year’s growth in numeracy and reading for a year’s input of teaching’. A year’s input of teaching can only occur when your child attends school every day. Many research studies have shown a clear link between attendance at school and achievement data of students. Quite simply, we cannot guarantee a year’s growth if children are not at school and are part of the teaching and learning process.
At Sandy Strait, we have set our 2017 attendance target at 93.5%. We are very pleased to report that our current attendance rate is 94.65%!!! I would like to thank all our families for supporting regular attendance and for providing every opportunity for our students to ‘Strive for Success’ in 2017.
