New Learning Spaces/hubs
Woodberry Public School is changing. We are becoming one of the most effective and innovative schools in our Region. All of our classrooms are turning into Innovation Hubs. In these hubs, your child will be treated like an individual where their individual needs will be met and their potential achieved.
We are extremely excited and fortunate to be in such an innovative and well- resourced room this year. "The Cove" is a learning hub for Stage 1, where we will still have the foundations of reading, writing, spelling and maths but will also have deep understanding, high engagement and ownership from the students.
