LEARNING SUPPORT TEAM
Each week the Learning Support Team meets to discuss the social, emotional, physical and academic needs of referred children to ensure appropriate interventions are implemented. The school counsellor attends this meeting and regularly meets with parents and students if parental permission is given. A parent may contact the office and attend a learning support team meeting or refer their child to the School Counsellor.
Our school counsellor is available every Thursday and every second Friday. The counsellor is able to observe children, meet with children and parents, perform psychometric assessments and conduct groups within classes. Please ring the office if you wish to make an appointment with the counsellor.
TRANSITION PROGRAM P-7
Our comprehensive Transition Program extends over three weeks for the whole school. Prospective kindergarten children attend school for a morning each week while their parents attend informative workshops. The topics covered include Restorative Practices, Literacy, Numeracy, Learning Support and Community Participation. The program ensures a smooth transition to kindergarten.
Students in Year 6 visit the local high school, Sydney Secondary College Balmain, for three mornings to hear from Year 7 students about their experiences and participate in a variety of lessons in different faculties.
Students in Years 1 to 5 transition to the next stage of schooling to gain a better understanding of content and expectations.
The school has a Student Parliament made up of a House of Representatives and a Senate. The members of the House of Representatives are elected by their fellow students. They are led by two Prime Minsters and two Deputy Prime Ministers. Twelve of these leaders are from Year 6 and four are from Year 5.
The Senate is our Student Representative Council. Two Representatives from each class are elected as senators each semester to the SRC. Students present and debate ideas, organise activities and raise funds for special causes and charities, or to improve Rozelle Public School.
As well as the Parliament there are a number of student leadership teams. We advertise our Positions Vacant each year and students from Yrs 4—6 may apply if they fulfil the criteria. They must apply and be interviewed for positions covering the following areas of responsibility—Library, Technology and Assembly.
Our Enrivonment team is responsible for initiatives within the school with the aim of making our school sustainable minimising our school's impact on the environment. This team is made up of one student from each class per semester.
Our House Captains and Vice Captains are responsible for organisation of the swimming carnival and sports carnivals, and also presenting place-getter's ribbons at our whole-school assemblies. This team works with the Parliament's Sports Ministers as part of the Sports Minister's supervision of sport across the school.
