2012 NSW South Western Sydney's Regional 'School Excellence Award'
Auburn North received this award because triangulated data demonstrated that our school's innovative and strategic differentiated leadership and teacher professional learning programs had significantly improved student learning outcomes.
An executive teacher from a different school brought eight of her teachers to our school in 2012 to observe our teachers providing outstanding learning opportunities for our students. Following the visit the executive teacher wrote the following:
"What my team of teachers walked away with was a new vision for their quality classroom practices. Through your modelling of high student engagement, using small groups, appropriate and purposeful technology, high expectations, learning intentions, explicit quality criteria, student self-assesment, substantive communication, and explicit feedback, my teachers are now bubbling with renewed enthusiasm.
Thank you for your professionalism, your explanations, your clarity, and your infectious and passionate attitude towards quality teaching."
