In 2018 our strategic improvement priority was about
consolidating the past few years of what we had achieved and setting a clear
direction of where we want to head in the next few years. We have
collaboratively developed a plan we have tilted FULL STEAM AHEAD, which sets out the direction for the school over the next four years from 2019-2022. You will hear
us talk about this a lot. We want to implement a Full Australian Curriculum
with a focus upon the STEAM subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts
and Maths and ensure every student succeeds and gets AHEAD. To view a one page overview of the 2019-2022 Full Steam Ahead Strategic Plan click here.
We want Hampden
students to have the capacity and opportunity to solve real world problems
using the Australian Curriculum in innovative and engaging ways. We
want them to have opportunities to work collaboratively to use their knowledge
and understanding in a range of curriculum areas to create solutions to real
life problems. We want them to be encouraged to work across curriculum
subjects and utilise literacy and numeracy skills, as well as a range of
appropriate technologies to communicate and present their solutions to the
school community. We want our school to embody our motto… Learning for life!
