Jindalee State School, in partnership with Education Queensland and our school community, has developed the School Annual Implementation Plan for 2013. The implementation plan puts into practice the strategies developed in our four-year plan developed in 2011. The key elements of the plan cover curriculum, teaching and learning, school and community and school leadership and capability. The plan reinforces our school commitment in 2013 to every child engaged in learning, every day, maximising the learning opportunities for our students, providing explicit teaching and differentiated learning for all students, and maximising the use of information and communications technology in learning. All of the strategies are firmly based on our Jindalee Way school philosophy.
The school plan is supported by the provision of resources and training through the school budget. Funds for the budget are provided partly by the government, partly by the Parents’ and Citizens’ Association and partly from parents’ and students’ payments for resources and services that are not funded from other sources.
This year, the budget is providing in excess of seventy thousand dollars for curriculum materials and support, forty thousand dollars for curriculum resources, forty thousand dollars for training and development, over one hundred thousand dollars for information and communications technology resources and support including our first ever iPad class (pictured above) and one hundred and eighty thousand dollars for facilities and maintenance.
