Welcome ToThe Currajong School

Today is Indigenous Literacy Day, and the staff and students at The Currajong School enjoy being emerged in Indigenous stories and culture. This was a great extension on our Book Week celebrations that was held two weeks ago.
On Monday 5th September, our school community celebrated Footy Colours Day where students and staff had the opportunity to wear the team colours of a Football team that they support. Of course, being inclusive we included all codes of football being AFL, Rugby and Soccer.
On Thursday 25th August, The Currajong School held a Book Week Dress Up Day, where students and staff enjoyed dressing up as characters from their favorite stories and books.
Dressing up is always a lot of fun, and the students enjoyed celebrating the day and seeing the wonderful outfits worn by their peers.
All staff and students, focused on this year’s theme that asks us all to continue to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! for systemic change and to keep rallying around our communities. Whether it’s supporting proper environmental, cultural and heritage protections, Constitutional change, a comprehensive process of truth-telling, working towards treaties, or calling out racism—we must do it together. At Currajong we believe that it is important to educate our students about this information, allow our students the autonomy to choose how they can Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!
Reconciliation Week, a week for all to learn about the shared histories, cultures, and achievements of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and to explore how we each individually and as a community can contribute towards achieving reconciliation for all Australians.
Our newest staff member, Milo, our therapy dog, has been welcomed to The Currajong School community with open arms.
Over the past two years with the pandemic, schools have been limited to host undergraduate teachers for teaching rounds.
In Term 2, we were excited to welcome Timea and Marshall who will do their placements.
At The Currajong School we aim to share best practice with inclusive education and share the strategies we use to support students who have social, emotional and behavioral disorders.
Our school community came together to celebrate the students learning over the course of Term 1 2022. All of our students had the opportunity to showcase and share their learning with their families and peers.
On Monday 4th April 2022, our staff and students celebrated Hoddie Up for Autism Day! Hoodie Up Day is run by AMAZE which is an organization shaping the future for people with Autism.
During the first few weeks of Term one, each class learnt about democracy and student voice, and how that can be utilised in our schools SRC. On Thursday 10th March, we celebrated our new school leaders with a special ceremony. It was wonderful to see the pride and excitement from all our students and staff.
