Life in the senior school at Laburnum is both a rewarding and enriching experience.
Our program, based on the Victorian Curriculum Framework, offers learning that is engaging, challenging and successful. Through the ongoing analysis of student assessment data, teachers determine the best learning path for each student’s unique needs. Using an evidenced-based approach in English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities, our students have their individual needs addressed, and work towards becoming independent learners.
Student wellbeing is a vital component for ensuring our students develop into happy, thriving individuals. Through the explicit teaching of structured programs, such as Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships, our students are supported to develop problem solving skills and proactive strategies for managing challenges. Within the Restorative Practices framework, our senior students learn to recognise that their choices and actions can impact others.
Senior students at Laburnum have opportunities to participate in various extracurricular activities and contribute to the school and wider community. Our senior school leadership program encourages every student to develop responsibility, respect, resilience and integrity. In Year 5, students continue developing their leadership skills, in preparation for formal leadership opportunities in their final year of primary school.
We are proud of the many and varied opportunities we provide for all students to Learn, Thrive and Contribute at Laburnum Primary School.
