Haven't booked for book week yet?

31 May 2018

SFS has a number of great incursions for book week. Canny teachers booked last year if they wanted a show in the actual book week, but you might be lucky! Best idea is to give us a range of dates and if you know some days are better, tell which they are, so when we contact you, we can suggest dates/days that will suit.

Here are some of our shows targetting book week or reading variously for students from K-Yr 6.

Schools contribute to inequality

23 May 2018

Social and economic inequalities in schools is reflected in NAPLAN results. Schools with children from disadvantaged backgrounds in Year Five are two and a half years behind more advantaged schools in English, two years behind in Maths. By Year Nine, this has grown to four years in reading and numeracy, four and a half years in writing.

It's ironic that social and economic disadvantage is simply increased with schooling. The gap between the highest and lowest performing schools is the third largest in the OECD countries. Only Chile and Turkey have greater inequalities.

The recent report from the Committee for Economic Development in Australia (CEDA) suggests the answer is in socially integrated schools and intervening early if students start to fall behind.

This shameful gap needs to be addressed.
