Forbes Public School (FPS) has enjoyed their annual celebration of NSW Public Education. This year, FPS has focused on the theme, Learning Together.
During the week staff and students have engaged in different learning opportunities and come together on Wednesday under the theme Learning Together, dressed up as their favourite book characters. This has provided a wonderful opportunity for staff and students to share in a love of reading and learning while showing off their colourful creativity.
Education Week has seen the launch of FPS’s new whole school literacy initiative.
Staff and students are very excited to be engaging in a new whole school program that focuses on embedding current and evidence-based reading strategies into all classrooms at Forbes Public School.
As part of the program, the school welcomed Mrs Janet Westcott to the team. Janet is a Literacy and Numeracy Strategy Advisor. This is a new and exciting role at FPS, which will enable Janet the opportunity to work with staff to promote quality student learning and growth over the term.
This forms part of the whole school strategy to provide students with current, effective, and innovative learning opportunities!
