                                         On behalf of the panel I would like
                                         to acknowledge the wor k that is      Staff and student data reflect the same

                                         like to ackno wledge the wor k of
                                         the leadership group of the school
                                         and the ongoing involvement of
                                         staff. The evidence ind icates that
                                         your students are achieving
                                         strongly in literacy and numeracy.
                                         Overall there is an overt focus on

                                         Strong evidence suggests that a
                                         continuous cycle of improvement
                                         is embedded into the culture of
                                         the school as it is well practiced
                                         with ongo ing staff involvement.
