SCHOOL PROFILE

Our school is in Wonthaggi, a friendly country town approximately 1 ½ hour’s drive from Melbourne,
close to beautiful beaches and the natural wonders of South Gippsland and the Bass Coast. We are
located in close proximity to the Bass Coast YMCA, Wonthaggi Football and Netball club facilities and the
nature reserve wrapping around the southern side of our school boundary.

Our school was established in 1912 with a new school and full sized gymnasium built in 1980. Many of
our families have a long history and strong connection with our school with generations attending over
the years. This history is one of many factors that contributes to our school pride and the desire to share
our school with families new to our community. Over the past 39 years many more classrooms have
been added and facilities upgraded. An emphasis on improving our school grounds to better support the
needs of our students occurred in 2019. This included a connection to the nature reserve, improving
outdoor learning spaces for our Science program and the request from our students for a vegetable
garden.

Wonthaggi North Primary School has a current student population of approximately 180. Our students
come from a diverse range of backgrounds which contributes to our inclusive and supportive culture.

Our great strength as a school is our ability to provide a positive learning environment with a broad range
of opportunities for our students. These include science programs, music and performing arts programs,
sporting opportunities, camps, ICT and annual events such as our Family Picnic and Christmas Concert.

Wonthaggi North Primary School provides a comprehensive curriculum developed in line with the
Victorian Curriculum. Please see our curriculum page for details about our key areas of English and
Maths. Our overall curriculum provides the essential knowledge, skills and behaviours students need to
prepare for further education, work and life. ICT is incorporated into curriculum areas, with students
having access to interactive whiteboards and interactive TVs and laptops in their classrooms.

Policies and programs have been developed to provide for students who have specific learning
requirements and all students are given access to a quality education. We are committed to the
integration of students with disabilities and to those from non English speaking backgrounds.

Please contact our office if you would like to arrange a tour of our school.

                                                                      WONTHAGGI NORTH PRIMARY SCHOOL - 1

                                           Vision Statement

At Wonthaggi North Primary School we believe that every student is an individual who is capable of
success. Our staff and school community value positive and meaningful relationships, allowing us to
engage our students in learning experiences that reflect their passion, interests and abilities.

Our knowledge and thirst for learning drives the structure of our curriculum and learning environments.
Staff create learning spaces that cater to the individual needs of our students, a place where students feel
safe, secure, valued and supported. A place they want to be. We are committed to learning beyond the
walls of our classrooms with access to sensory and outdoor learning spaces.

We provide workshop models for both reading and writing. These workshop models allow students to be
independent learners, taking both responsibility and accountability for their learning. Our curriculum is
strong and engaging as teachers use their knowledge of the students to plan lessons that are organised to
meet student needs. Each student is encouraged to take risks as they engage and progress through their
learning journey.

Our students have a voice that is heard and valued. We pride ourselves on acting upon student suggestion
whilst providing them with what they need to become life-long learners. Our priority is to make learning
purposeful. We believe that this is achieved through providing students with the knowledge, skills and
dispositions for learning, which become strategies that they need and use in their everyday lives.

We teach students to seek, accept and develop based on feedback. We aim for all feedback to be
constructive, respectful, supportive and purposeful. Our students are aware of the power of their voice
and develop resilience throughout their learning journey with us.

Our success is underpinned by the fact we teach more than just the curriculum. We empower our
students to have pride and respect for themselves, others and the environment. We teach our students
to have empathy and compassion by being strong role models. We believe in our students and support
them through their learning journey, from first challenge to final outcome.

                          Community, Respect, Explore, Resilience & Challenge

Enrolment
There are a number of factors that contribute to choosing a school that best suits the needs of your child.
Feel free to contact our school office to arrange a tour of school setting and meet our school community.
We will ensure your child has a buddy to make their transition to Wonthaggi North Primary School as
smooth as possible. Your child’s teacher will arrange to meet with you after the first few weeks to discuss
how your child is settling in.
Enrolment Checklist
    If your child is transferring to our school from another Victorian Government School your child’s
     details will be transferred electronically. You only need to update any details that may have
     changed.

Transition - Starting School
The year before ...
At Wonthaggi North Primary School we acknowledge the significant step from kinder to school for our
prep students. Our transition program culminates in Term 4 of the final year of kinder. We host
transitions mornings throughout the term where kinder children are invited to join us in the classroom to
meet their teachers and other students and become familiar with the school environment. Transitions
mornings are followed by the state wide transition day in early December. More information about dates
and times for transition and state wide orientation is available in Term 3.
Our prep teachers and student leaders visit our kinders, pre schools and early childhood education
settings throughout the year, reading books, singing songs and participating in activities.

The start of the prep year …
Over time we have noted that the success of the transition program in the year prior to starting school
makes the first day very calm. As such the start of the day has the following routine.

Your child will begin school at 9.00 am Thursday January 28, 2021 and upon arrival at the Prep Rooms
will:
     Meet the teacher.
     Be provided with a name tag.
     Hang up their bags.
     Place lunch box in the designated area.
     Put their drink bottle onto the sink bench or on their table.
     Choose an activity to go on with.

To assist with the transition to school, for the first six weeks (until the March Labour Day weekend) Prep
students will attend school four days per week, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, Friday from 9.00 am
until 3.25 pm

Interviews
Literacy and Numeracy assessments for our prep students take place on the Wednesdays. You will be
given a date and time to bring your child into school for their interview. Parents are not required to stay
for the interview.

                                                                     WONTHAGGI NORTH PRIMARY SCHOOL - 7
School Routines
After the bell students are helped to learn how to organise themselves for the day, developing a routine
and a smooth transition into each day.

Things you do that help us at school
    Teaching your child simple self help skills; doing up buttons, zips and shoes, dressing and
     undressing, caring for their own belongings and using the toilet correctly.
    Teaching your child to read their name.
    Having regular sleeping routines.
    Reading books and talking with your child.
    Labelling everything for that is removable: clothing, lunchbox, drink bottle, hat...
    Practicing having school lunches at home, handling their lunchbox and unwrapping food.
    Putting a set of spare clothes in your child’s school bag in case of small accidents or wet weather.

Buddies
All prep children are supported in the transition to school with a buddy child from grade 6. Introductions
and connections are made prior to the commencement of the prep year through the transition program.
Our buddies play an important role in supporting our preps by looking out for them in the yard and
helping them with minor issues.

The Better Buddies program (Alannah & Madeline Foundation) supports the connection between buddies
throughout the year. More information can be found on their website.
http://www.betterbuddies.org.au/

                                                                    WONTHAGGI NORTH PRIMARY SCHOOL - 8
Communication
Compass
Compass is our main tool for communication. Compass is used for a range of communication including
emailing teachers, communicating attendance, school news, written reports, learning tasks and to book
parent teacher meetings.
The Compass App is available to download or can be accessed online through your web browser. This is
set up when you enrol your child. Support is available from our Administration Officer Rachel Rigby or
our Compass coordinator Kylie Strickland. Compass support sessions for parents are run after school at
different times throughout the year.

Reporting to Parents
Parents are kept informed on their child’s progress on a regular basis . Learning Tasks are added to your
child’s Compass page showing their learning across the curriculum.
Term 1 :         Parent Teaching Meetings
Term 2:          Written Reports
Term 3:          NAPLAN results for Years 3 and 5
Term 4:          Written Reports
                 Parent Teacher Meetings
Teachers are available to meet with you throughout the year. Making an appointment with the teacher
ensures that you have adequate time to meet, before school and after school can be very busy times for
teachers. Contact can be made via Compass email, you can leave a message through our office or you ask
the teacher to call you to arrange a time. Our teachers are not permitted to contact you through social
media or outside of regular school hours.

Assembly
Assembly is held in our gymnasium each Monday from 2.50pm. Families are very welcome to attend.

School Notices
Our School Newsletter is published each Tuesday on Compass. Some of the items in our newsletter
includes information about upcoming events, assembly awards for the following week and community
notices.

Information Pouches
Students in grade Prep will receive a blue pouch to keep take home reading and important notices safe
for transport between home and school. It is expected the students will use these until grade 3.

                                                                   WONTHAGGI NORTH PRIMARY SCHOOL - 9
Curriculum
Wonthaggi North Primary School provides programs for all students based on the Learning Areas and
Capabilities identified in the Victorian Curriculum. The VCAA provides a comprehensive overview of the
Victorian Curriculum and we map our school curriculum against the standards.
We are also committed to the Framework for Improving Student Outcomes which provides an
accountability framework linked to our school Strategic Plan and Annual Implementation Plan.
Whole-school curriculum planning is an ongoing process, along with team planning. In addition to
classroom experiences, students also have access to specialist teachers for Physical Education, Music,
Drama and Science.

Mathematics
In 2015 Wonthaggi North Primary School was successful in receiving funding to access a Primary Maths
Science Specialist (PMSS) for the following two years. Throughout 2016 and 2017 each of our teachers
participated in a range of professional learning including coaching, lesson studies, team teaching and peer
observations, to increase their skills in teaching mathematics.
This has enhanced teaching and learning of mathematics at Wonthaggi North Primary School significantly.
Students’ feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. They describe the learning tasks as engaging and
challenging. Teachers are able to more effectively cater for the diverse needs of their students. We are
looking forward to sharing this learning with our community through Family Maths Nights.

Readers’ Workshop
To ensure our students are well supported, we use the Readers’ Workshop routine through whole class
teaching, in small groups and at individual levels. The Big Six is used to assess and teach reading across
our school. The Big Six identifies the components essential for reading; Oral Language, Phonological
Awareness, Phonics, Vocabulary, Fluency and Comprehension. We use Sounds-Write to teach phonics.
Sounds-Write is an evidence based approach and one of the only phonics programs in the world that uses
a sound (phoneme) to letter (grapheme) approach.

Writers’ Workshop
In 2018 we established our Writers’ Workshop routines. This allows teachers to meet regularly with each
student to focus on their individual skills in writing through writers conferences. Students also have the
opportunity to provide feedback to each other. Students build their skills in the writing process,
unpacking thinking, using planning, drafting, revising and editing techniques, learning and practicing
grammar. Teachers support students to select ways of publishing suited to their writing. Students have
some choice in selecting writing topics and experiment with text types and structure to enhance the
message they want to convey through their writing.

Challenging Learning Process
In 2019 we begin our journey with the Challenging Learning Partnership. The Learning Challenge focuses
on a number of different aspects of learning including; giving and receiving feedback, creative and critical
thinking, growth mindset, The Learning Pit, giving students the language to think and talk about learning
and building resilience and self-efficacy.

                                                                    WONTHAGGI NORTH PRIMARY SCHOOL - 10
Student Wellbeing
Every child is an individual who is encouraged to develop a high level of achievement across all
curriculum and learning areas. It is our collective responsibility to develop their full potential as thinking,
responsible and caring individuals.
We aim to ensure we have a positive school culture where everyone in our school community can feel
connected, valued, safe and happy. To support this we actively promote values and the importance of
relationships, communication and understanding.
At Wonthaggi North Primary School we are committed to the safety and wellbeing of children and young
people. Our school community recognises the importance of, and a responsibility for ensuring our school
is a safe supportive and enriching environment. We respect and foster the dignity and self-esteem of
children and young people enabling them to thrive in their learning and development.

Respectful Relationships
In 2020 we became a Respectful Relationships School. The following extract from The Department of
Education and Training website;
The Royal Commission into Family Violence identified the critical role that schools and early childhood
education have in creating a culture of respect to change the story of family violence for future
generations.
In 2016, respectful relationships education became a core component of the Victorian Curriculum from
foundation to year 12, and is being taught in all government and Catholic schools and many independent
schools.
Everyone in our community deserves to be respected, valued and treated equally. We know that changes
in attitudes and behaviours can be achieved when positive attitudes, behaviours and equality are
embedded in our education settings.
Respectful Relationships is about embedding a culture of respect and equality across our entire
community, from our classrooms to staffrooms, sporting fields, fetes and social events. This approach
leads to positive impacts on student’s academic outcomes, their mental health, classroom behaviour, and
relationships between teachers and students.
Together, we can lead the way in saying yes to respect and equality, and creating genuine and lasting
change so that every child has the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

                                                                      WONTHAGGI NORTH PRIMARY SCHOOL - 11
Zones of Regulation
The Zones of Regulation empowers students with the skills to self-regulate
their emotions. We are really excited to be implementing this program
with support from Occupational Therapists from the Speech Pathology in
Schools (SPiS) team.

THE FOUR ZONES: OUR FEELINGS & STATES DETERMINE OUR ZONE
The Red Zone is used to describe extremely heightened states of alertness and intense emotions. A
person may be elated or experiencing anger, rage, devastation, or terror when in the Red Zone.

The Yellow Zone is also used to describe a heightened state of alertness and elevated emotions, however
one has more control when they are in the Yellow Zone. A person may be experiencing stress,
frustration, anxiety, excitement, silliness, the wiggles, or nervousness when in the Yellow Zone.

The Green Zone is used to describe a calm state of alertness. A person may be described as happy,
focused, content, or ready to learn when in the Green Zone. This is the zone where optimal learning
occurs.

The Blue Zone is used to describe low states of alertness and down feelings such as when one feels sad,
tired, sick, or bored.

School Wide Positive Behaviour
Our whole school approach to student wellbeing and behaviour management is based on School Wide
Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS). This approach is well-researched and has been shown to enhance
student wellbeing in the schools in which it is implemented.
The approach aims to create a positive school culture across the school community, through consistent
expectations. Students understand what is expected across the school from the front gate, to the
classrooms, to the playground and outside of the school whilst on camps and excursions.
Staff use consistent language, visual aids and restorative practises to support students.

Chaplain
The National School Chaplaincy Programme (NSCP) Project Agreement is a four-year (2015-2018)
Commonwealth–funded initiative to provide chaplaincy services in government, Catholic and
independent schools.
The Programme aims to support students through the provision of pastoral care services and the
promotion of strategies that support the emotional wellbeing of students and the broader school
community.
We are very fortunate to have Mrs Sue Cronk as our School Chaplain at Wonthaggi North Primary School.
Participation in the Programme is voluntary, and parental consent is needed for students to participate in
any small group programs or to meet with the chaplain individually.

For further information or to speak with Mrs Cronk, please contact the school.

                                                                  WONTHAGGI NORTH PRIMARY SCHOOL - 12
School A-Z
Banking
All you need to do is open a Youthsaver account for your child, if they don’t already have one. To get
started parents can open an account online or in person at any Commonwealth Bank Branch. Students
bring their bank deposit book and money to school each Wednesday where deposits are processed at the
school office. The school also benefits by receiving a commission from the bank for all transactions
processed.

Canteen
Lunches may be purchased from the canteen, which is open on a Friday. A price list will be available
early in the year and parents will be informed of any price increases during the year. Children may bring
a small amount of money to spend on snacks in a purse, wallet or envelope. The canteen will be open
for the sales of snacks between 1.55 pm and 2.15 pm each day.

Homework
Homework at Wonthaggi North primary School is home reading.

Reading at home can be:
Students reading to someone,
Students reading to themselves,
Students being read to.
Students may be provided with level appropriate books to read or may source their own suitable reading
material. All students will be encouraged to read from a variety of texts.
Students will be encouraged to read for the following,
Prep, grade 1 and grade 2 a minimum for 10-15 minutes
Grades 3 and 4 we suggest a minimum of 15 to 20 minutes
Grades 5 and 6 students should aim to read for at least 20 to minutes

                                                                  WONTHAGGI NORTH PRIMARY SCHOOL - 13
Library
Wonthaggi North Primary School has an excellent Library facility and children will be able to borrow and
return books from the school library as often as they choose, during Library lessons or before and after
school. Each child must have a library bag made from strong material with a draw string top. Encourage
your child to borrow books from the library so that you may share the books at home.

Medical information
Allergies & Anaphylaxis
It is important that parents inform the school of all allergies their children may have so that the school
can take appropriate action to keep children safe.
Anaphylaxis is a severe, rapidly progressing allergic reaction that is potentially life threatening. All
students with anaphylaxis must have a written action plan from their doctor. An individual management
plan will be developed in consultation with the parents of any student who has been diagnosed by a
medical practitioner as being at risk of anaphylaxis.
Asthma
All children suffering from asthma are required to have a written School Asthma Management Plan (to be
completed by your doctor). Forms are available from the school office. Children with asthma can, as is
the practice now, continue to have their inhaler and medication in school. Asthma medication will be
kept in the office. Please supply your own individual spacer.

Personal belongings
Children should not bring expensive items of personal property to school. The school cannot guarantee
the safety of such items and therefore cannot accept any responsibility for the loss or theft of pupil’s
personal property. When children are requested to bring money to school, this will be collected at the
earliest opportunity by appropriate members of staff.
Jewellery – not permitted
Jewellery is not permitted at school. Pupils who wear jewellery may expose themselves or others to risk
of serious injury, particularly during physical education games and activities. Exceptions to the rule
include inexpensive watches and the use of sleepers or studs by children who have pierced ears.

Mobile Phones – not permitted in classrooms
Students may not have mobile phones in the classroom. If students need to have a mobile phone, it is to
be taken to the school office and stored during school hours.

School Camps Program
For students in year 2 to 6 we run a comprehensive School Camps Program. Year 2 students enjoy a
school sleepover. Students in year 3 and 4 participate in adventure camps and Years 5 and 6 experience
Wilson’s Promontory and Melbourne.
A lot of thought and planning goes into the Camps Program to promote self esteem and confidence in
students, foster communication and co-operative skills, and give children the opportunity to step out of
their comfort zones.

                                                                    WONTHAGGI NORTH PRIMARY SCHOOL 14
Swimming Program
All students take part in an eight week swimming program with qualified YMCA instructors at the
Wonthaggi Aquatic Centre. Children in Grades Three to Six swim during Term One, and children in Grades
Prep to Two have their swimming sessions during Term Four. The cost of the swimming program is
invoiced separately to the Booklist. In 2020, the cost for swimming was $26 per child.

Footwear
The dress code includes, as part of the school uniform policy “Black shoes and/or mostly white sports
shoes (eg sneakers, runners)”. Podiatrists recommended plain black shoes that can be used as school
shoes and sports shoes as they provide the best support for young growing feet and legs.

THE WEARING OF THONGS OR OPEN TOE SHOES IS NOT ALLOWED AT SCHOOL!

Wet Weather Footwear
In wet weather the children are required to remove shoes as they enter school. Some parents provide a
pair of slippers for school for use in the classroom (this is optional). As children attend Physical Education
regularly, suitable shoes should either be worn to school, or provided to change into.

Labels
We request that all personal requisites and clothing be clearly marked with your child’s name. Assist the
child in identifying his/her own name tag. Please label school bags, lunch boxes and drink bottles.

Uniform
All students are required to wear school uniform. We are very proud of our uniform and believe it looks
smart, wears well and contributes to a feeling of belonging to the school. The school uniform is not
expensive, offers a wide choice and is a very practical outfit. It is important that children’s clothes are
labelled for identification as we regularly have a fairly large collection of lost property, and it is impossible
to identify the owners of garments which are not named.

From September 1 to April 30 all students are required to wear a School Hat whenever they are outside.
(School Hats can be purchased from the school office).

                                We are very proud to be working in partnership with State schools’ Relief
                                as our uniform suppliers. You can purchase our uniform online through
                                State Schools’ Relief. This wonderful organisation is a not for profit that
                                supports disadvantaged students across Victoria. Purchasing from them
                                means another child in Victoria who is experiencing hardship is able to get
support with various items for school.
