In 2019, McAuley College has set a specific SMART goal to focus on the area of literacy as part of our Excellence in Learning and Teaching: Moving Forward strategy.

Critical Challenge

To improve Written Literacy for students; and

To develop a school wide approach to literacy improvement


2019 SMART Goal

In 2019, the teaching staff will engage with the effective and expected practices, to improve written literacy. This will be identified through the use of data that lead learning and short cycles of planning linked to our work with Accelerate.  We will also continue to build capacity of teachers in the explicit teaching of literacy across learning areas. As a result, by the end of 2019, 80% of Year 7, 8 and 9 students will be consistently reaching the Writing Analysis tool (20-24).​
