Specialist Programs


Learning at Albert Street
At Moe (Albert Street) Primary School, our purposeful planning for learning is based on the numeracy and literacy data collected as per our prep-6 assessment schedule as well as pupil free assessment days held before the beginning of the school year. Extensive interviews are held with each new family to ensure the student is appropriately placed with staff and students and their social and academic needs meet

Albert St Primary School comprises of Junior unit (P-2) and a Middle/Senior unit (years 3-6) based around collaborative teaching and learning. Health & Physical Education and Visual Art and Music are also taught across the school.

Our curriculum allows every student the opportunity to develop goals, experience success, and identify opportunities for further learning. It is through the development of the whole person – the intellectual, physical, emotional and social dimensions – that an Albert Street Primary School student can dare to dream and reach their potential in society.



Out of School Hours Care (Coming in Term 3)

We are very excited to announce that Out of School Hours Care will be coming in term 3. The program will include before and after school care from 7:00am to 8:45am and from 3:00pm to 6:00pm respectively.  The children will enjoy breakfast in the morning and snacks in the afternoon session as well as engaging activities to keep little hands entertained.


Library
Albert Street offers library as part of its specialist programs. Students visit the library each week to exchange books, research using our computer bank as well as learn about general library usage. Each year our students participate in the Premier's Reading Challenge and celebrate book week and we also hold major events such as Book Fair.



Digital Technology

This is our first year of Digital Technology specialist classes.  Tiffany French is our Digi-Tech teacher and is working on a variety of activities to increase student knowledge around Internet Safety. Our younger students have also been learning how to use Microsoft Office Applications such as PowerPoint, Word, and Paint. The older children have thoroughly enjoyed creating comics and digital classrooms through Pixton and learning how to code through other programs such as Scratch. 

 

This picture is one of our digital classrooms from the middle unit. We have been learning how to keep our personal details private, including pictures of ourselves, so we created avatars as one of our classroom activities. 




Performing Arts
Music and Drama is taught by Reggie Cleef. Children learn how to play various instruments, learn singing and movement and also drama. Reggie will be working towards preparing the children for our concert later this year.



Community Garden
If you have an interest in gardening, this program is for you. We are establishing a Community garden where teachers, students and parents plant harvest and cook together. We have a garden box for each class which is managed by volunteering parents. We also have chooks that are cared for by the school community. Jess Woodhouse runs a gardening club during lunch times on Wednesdays. Children learn about sustainability, planting and work with our partners Latrobe Community Health and Rotary. Thy are currently planning for the installation of a pizza oven in our community garden.
