St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School, on Brisbane’s northside, has been named as one of Australia’s leading innovative schools by The Educator Australia, for its Academic Advising Program.
Twice a week, students from Years 9 to 12 are engaged in small group sessions with a teacher, their dedicated academic advisor, who assists them to set goals based on their results and class teacher feedback, guiding them to self-manage their learning.
The key to the program’s success is in using data to provide feedback about students’ progress to drive their learning.
Equally, its success lies in the consistent interrogation of that data and supporting students to effectively implement the feedback, so it can lead to enhanced learning and improved results.
The innovative program facilitates a more purposeful approach to academic care. It’s one of the many ways St Margaret’s personalises its approach to each student’s learning.
