Truth, Pride and Friendship

Mathematics - Number

Maths (Number) was introduced as a priority learning area at the beginning of 2009; results thus far have shown a slow but steady improvement and justified this decision.  Utilising the revised First Steps Maths Scope and Sequence has assisted staff to focus on progressing individual students outcomes.

Concept development has been integrated across all learning areas, assisting learning through practical context-based application. In particular, numbers skills are being applied in community and home environments to strengthen and excite learning.

Visits to the shops to buy ingredients for cooking, then following the instructions in a recipe, are a popular example. Students also learn the rudiments of budgeting as part of their cooking experience.

Consistent daily use of diaries and application of simple time management have helped to consolidate essential skills.

    Dear Parents, Carers and members of the RESC Community,

    I am pleased to officially announce that our Administration Office upgrade will commence on the 11 September 2017.

    From that date access to the school office and front-of-school Disabled Parking bays will be limited by construction activities and hoarding around the work site. We will work with the builder to try to keep that disruption and non-access time to a minimum. Your patience and understanding during this time will be very much appreciated.
