Our Annual Report

NAPLAN

Our students participate in the NAPLAN testing program but with our small enrollment we do not publicly report their results as it could indentify the results of individual students. Generally speaking, all of our students score in the average or above average range.

STAFF

We have a very dedicated staff at Hinchinbrook Christian School. They consist of Becky Jaworski (Principal–B. Sc.), Debra Minnick (Distance Education Coordinator–B. Sc., M.A.) and Amy Jaworski (Teacher's Aide–Gr. 8 AMEB piano & presently working on a degree in Primary Education). These staff members receive $500 to use toward their 20 hours of professional development each year. Development included workshops, staff presentations, review of books/periodicals and participation in DVD instruction. Our Average Staff Attendance for 2016 was 100% and the proportion of staff retained from 2015 was 100%.

Helpers are a treasured resource to Hinchinbrook Christian School. This year Mr and Mrs Weston, Miss Jodie Clark, Miss Sarah Minnick, Mrs Grace Zatta and Mrs Jessica Blake all gave of their time and of themselves to enhance the educational experience of our students.
