Incidental Inspection

Following an incidental inspection by the DES in September, the inspector reported that:

-there was a positive atmosphere in all lessons visited,

-very good student-teacher rapport, with a culture of trust and mutual respect,

-the atmosphere in all lessons is very positive,

-good attention to literacy and numeracy development across the school,

-our 1st year students are very happy and settling in very well to the school.

This reaffirms the great work and commitment of students and staff in St. Paul’s Community College. Congratulations to all.
