Welcome to our website. As Principal of Bucasia State School, I would like to invite you to browse our site.
We are a P – 6 school with our Senior Year 6 and 7 students departing in 2012 to enrol in Mackay Northern Beaches State High School. Therefore, Year 6 is our Senior Year.
In 2014 we have an enormous amount planned. Some of the highlights include:
In learning we were fortunate to be selected as one of three schools in the district to work with leading educator John Fleming on 'Explicit Teaching' This has enormous benefits for our students, teachers and parents as we grow together as a learning community. So, our predominately good student learning results will be even more impressive!
This year teachers are focussing on improving student learning in regard to reading, spelling and numeracy where we intend that all students should be achieving well above the national minimum standards. This means that professional development, directed and explicit teaching will be targetted at these areas as particular needs of the students in the school. Other curricululm areas will not be disadvantaged by this.
In school development we have been the recipients of several grants that have enabled us to build a large shade over one of the playgrounds, build a covered walkway from the new library to our multipurpose hall and have also secured a Chaplaincy grant that will allow us to employ a Chaplain at our school for 2 days a week for the next 2 years. These grants will enable us to make our excellent school even better in regard to facilities and human resources.
We have commenced the year with 14 classroom teachers and an additional classroom block so our school is continuing to grow with the community.
Have a lovely day!
