Science Technology Engineering & Mathematics (STEM)
STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education. STEM studies develop generic skills such as problem solving, critical thinking and creativity, which are used in a wide range of occupations. These skills are gained and enhanced through the study of Mathematics, Physical, Chemical and Biological Sciences, Engineering and Technology and Enterprise, subjects provided as part of Newton Moore’s Lower and Upper School curriculum.Read More
Learning Support Program
The Learning Support Program aims to develop documented plans and up skill teaching and non-teaching staff with up to date, evidence based, best teaching practice for students with an imputed or diagnosed disability. Another key aspect of this program is to improve the Literacy skills of students across the school. This support is offered through small group tuition, directly linked to skills and knowledge required for success in OLNA (Online Numeracy and Literacy Assessment). Year 7 and 8 students that are “at risk” are also catered for through this program on a needs basis. Targeted learning programs are implemented to improve specific literacy skills in Reading and Writing. The Learning Support Program is one aspect of the ‘wrap around’ support provided to our students to improve their outcomes and achieve their potential.

Prepare – Don’t go scrambling for a pen and paper. Go to class with all your materials ready to go.
Organise – Keep your notes for each class in one place. Use a file or multi-subject notebook to keep notes together. Remember to include a place for any loose handouts.
Label – Use dividers to separate each class into sections by unit or topic.
Chronology – It can be tempting to shove your notes into your file after a long class, but take the time to ensure that they are in the correct order. Better to take the time now, rather than search for them when you need to study.
Maintain – Go through your file or notebook weekly to ensure that there is no loose paper and do a general tidy up of them.
