Baler Primary School in partnership with BHP provides students with opportunities to broaden and extend their learning through Enrichment classes. The focus for students involved in these classes has been to extend learning in Numeracy, Literacy, Digital Technologies and the Arts (visual, media, dance).
The capacity to employ an enrichment teacher has been possible through extra funding made available to the school via the BHP Partnership. A further extension of this has been the involvement in cross school initiatives and extension programs – Robotics, STEM, Literacy and Numeracy.
Students from the top 20% percentile in NAPLAN and other assessments are selected to participate in cross school learning for a three-hour period once a week. The focus of these sessions changes each term.
