Highest school attendance achieved so far this year!

Posted on: 29 February 2020, 7:21am

Papulu Apparr-kari’s own Yellow Shirts, part of the Remote Students Attendance Strategy (RSAS) team are closely working with Tennant Creek Primary School to help facilitate getting our children into attending school which has began to pay dividends with the school reporting the highest attendance so far this term.  This is great achievement and a big thank you to all staff members who have helped to achieve this.
Bryan Hughes, principle of Tennant Creek Primary School has these words.

A word from our Principal

69.87% : Staff and families are to be congratulated on their efforts to encourage students to attend school. This is the highest attendance figure since I have been Principal and is the result of teachers phoning parents daily to encourage students who have been away
to return to school and continue their learning. We have also had some special events that encourage students to attend regularly such as: swimming carnival, pancake breakfast and mobile classroom.

Mobile Classroom
In our first visit to Village and Marla Marla on Wednesday Ms. Kaz and Ms. Sharon spoke to 5 families and taught 18 students. Next day on the Thursday, another 16 students were in attendance and many families turned up for a chat.

Breakfast Hosted by the Language Centre
We are pleased to acknowledge the Language Centre for its sponsorship and delivery of breakfast for all students at TCPS. There is plenty of food for everyone.
