Students Can & Do Make a Difference

At Mount Ousley we encourage students to find their voice and speak up for causes they're passionate about. This week has been extraordinary.

A stage 3 classroom discussion about current affairs led to an entire class designing a campaign to speak up against racism. It makes me enormously proud that a group of 11 and 12 year olds has committed to try to change the way in which the world so often perceives Muslims. No challenge is ever too big!

Student Led Conferences

Hi everyone,

Student Reflection

Getting kids to reflect on their learning has been one of the most important things we’ve woven into our school culture. When learners reflect there is real potential for deeper learning and a growth in self-esteem.

The Changing Face of Education

The world around us is constantly changing, so why wouldn’t education keep changing too? For a long while, education in fact didn’t change a great deal, but now, that’s all different.

Until recently, many of the established norms within the schooling system were at odds with what was occurring in the real world. For example, technology in schools was largely seen as something that should be kept quite separate from our core business of teaching children to read, write and be numerate.

Student Led Conferences

Have you heard the exciting news? Student led conferences will supplement the mid year reports at MOPS this year. But what does that mean?

Come Monday Week 9 (20th June), parents will be invited into 1/2F and will be guided through a teaching and learning conference by their child, with support from myself. This will provide an opportunity for rich, meaningful discussion with your child about their learning, as student will show parents:

    - What they have been learning and why,

    - What they value and think is important at school,
