School upgrades on the way

INVERLOCH-KONGWAK Primary School’s Kongwak campus will be upgraded thanks to a $100,000 allocation from the State Government’s capital works program.
The school’s teaching and learning spaces will be replaced or upgraded, to provide modern teaching spaces for the school’s students and staff.
Principal Brett Smith said the school is currently undergoing a consultation process with the local community, as well as Kongwak’s students and staff to determine how the upgrades will look.
Each Wednesday, senior students at Kongwak get together.
The senior students take on a teaching role when working with their junior buddies, supporting their learning and even providing feedback when needed.
Being a smaller school, the program provides a great opportunity for the students to interact at an educational level as well as on a social level.

Great experience: from left, Kongwak Primary School students April, Tahlia, Lily and Alexis work together as part of the school’s peer support program.
