Gillen Primary School
Kind, Creative and Proud
On the 19th of July the Hon. Jason Clare MP spoke at the National Press Club about the work being done at Gillen School. He then visited our school firsthand later that month to see our Kind, Proud and Creative learners in action.
“But at Gillen Public School something is happening. Eight years ago the reading skills of third graders was way below the rest of the Northern Territory. Now it’s above. What are they doing? Apart from phonics and a consistent, whole school approach? Small group tutoring. Children who need extra help come out of their regular class every day and get the extra help they need in a small group. And it’s not just literacy that’s improved. So has behaviour and attendance. School starts to make more sense. “The Hon. Jason Clare MP
