It's Performance Time!

Our students have many opportunities to become involved in all different sorts of performances. And around this time of the year, it's a particularly busy time!

Several weeks ago around 30 of our students joined with students from a host of other Illawarra schools to perform in the Wollongong Choral Festival. On stage at Wollongong Town Hall, singing in front of a full house, will be a lasting memory for everyone involved. In particular, congratulations to Tien M, one of only a few students who performed a solo.

Who We Are

It’s been close on ten years now since our school community developed the Mount Ousley Dignity and Respect Charter. It’s an important document and one which we proudly display around the school. It represents who we are and what we believe. It can be viewed here.

The Charter is based on our core values, defining the kind of school we wish to be. And even though the document is almost a decade old, it’s still very much current!

The Untold Stories Behind NAPLAN Data

Another year of NAPLAN is over.

In a few months we’ll receive our results; some students will do exceedingly well, others will not. The school averages will be what they will be, compared by many to national and state averages in each aspect of literacy and numeracy.

The data will be published to MySchool, and some in society will make decisions about how good the delivery of education in our school is, based on the data made available.

But what will never be published are the human stories behind the assessments.

Outdoor Learning Area

Have you seen our our new outdoor learning area? It's been a huge hit in the week it's been open, both as an outdoor classroom and a magical play space.

The Year Ahead

2017 is shaping up to be an exciting year! We welcome new staff and new families to our school community, and together look forward to the year ahead. In 2017 we will continue to be the “small school where big things happen”.
