Curtin enjoys strong community support. Our philosophy and goals were developed in consultation with parents, teachers and students. At Curtin our emphasis is on creating a supportive learning environment that is rich academically and socially. We are committed to quality in achievement and helping all students to improve, whatever their starting point. We have a world recognized program that caters for Gifted and Talented students with five accelerated learning classes from year one to year six. We promote an inclusive culture, with students from different ethnic backgrounds and students with disabilities being accommodated and valued within our school community.

Tuesday evening is the culminating event of our Writers’ Festival - our Writing Spectacular! Students will take their chosen published piece of work from the Writers’ Festival and present it in multi age groups. The students have been located in House groups so that families can stay together. Signs will point you in the right direction from both the front and back doors on Tuesday evening. The Writing Spectacular runs from 6pm - 7.15pm.
We look forward to seeing you all there!

Australian School Climate Survey
Schools in the ACT are asking their community to complete the Australian School Climate Measuring Tool Survey. The aim of this survey is to hear from parents/carers about their experiences as a member of this school community. This survey looks at more areas in detail than the school satisfaction survey, such as relationships with teachers, connection to the school (school identification), and engagement in school life.
Your responses are extremely useful and valuable in finding out what we do well and where we can improve as a school community.

What an exciting start to the Writing Festival! The whole school met in the Patterson Hall to eagerly receive their mystery box - full of interesting prompts to produce some BRILLIANT writing!
We are looking forward to seeing what students produce and can't wait to share the published writing with our families.
