2018 IMPACT Project - Just Write Year 3 and 5 – Writing Extension Program
Our Improvement Agenda targets students in the Upper 2 Bands of learning. These bands are identified through NAPLAN results and we utilise a range of school based educational screens and assessments to determine progress and aptitude of students.
This year our school has enrolled groups from our Years 3 and 5 students forming our U2B groups for the ‘Just Write Program’, delivered through the IMPACT Centre.
In the n the Just Write Program students are extended beyond formulaic writing. They discover how successful writers create ideas and expand on those ideas to draw the audience in. They practise the craft of writing, constructing sentences and passages that convey subject matter, mode and tenor. The Just Write Program also provides a great opportunity for our children to experience online learning. It includes the chance to connect and collaborate with students from other state schools in Queensland.
The program is delivered by the IMPACT Centre in partnership with Moreton Downs State School.
·       The IMPACT Centre is a branch of Queensland’s Department of Education and Training. 
·       The centre offers a range of online learning programs to students from Queensland state schools.
·       The school is funding this program. There is no cost to you.
·       More information is available at www.impact.edu.au.
