About Us
Teaching & Learning

In 2011 the school's strategic learning focus includes:

  • Developing a whole school approach to writing, grammar and punctuation
  • Improving NAPLAN writing results to above national standards
  • Implementing a whole school approach to spelling
  • Piloting the new National curriculum

Reading and Writing

The First Steps Reading and Writing Program is being used to provide the whole school approach for the teaching of reading and writing.

During Term 1 and 2 teachers are working with staff from Teaching, Learning and Standards to develop their knowledge of writing, writing strategies and ways to help students write.

School Council

Nightcliff Primary School Council is made up of parents, teachers and community members who are elected to the council. The council meets on the third Tuesday of each month.

The council has an active and wide ranging involvement in decisions for the school, including policy, contracts, infrastructure contracts, the canteen and fundraising.
