Reading skill is a good predictor of success in other curriculum areas. At BPS we have focused on improving READING and COMPREHENSION , as part of our Site Improvement Plan, for the last three years. In week 5 of each term we check in with our data to ensure all learners R-2 are on track and if not we know the ‘story’ behind their journey.
COVID shut the school down for awhile but we are back on track with LEARNING as our key focus. Congratulations to the students and their families for doing such a great job with the Home Learning program.

NAPLAN Testing has just about finished for our Year 3,5 and 7 students. This week we are doing make up tests for any children who were absent last week.

At Brompton Primary School our vision is to create fluent and enthusiastic readers. Competence in reading is key to independent learning and has a direct effect on progress in all other areas of the curriculum. In the Junior Primary years students are learning TO read so that as they enter Year 3 they are able to read to LEARN.

This is the last edition for the school year and WHAT a year it has been. COVID –19 has certainly change the year’s landscape in many ways. Our contact with the parent community has been mostly from the gate looking out to you all– hopefully 2021 will see families being able to come back on to the grounds and join in with their child’s learning.
I just want to share with you all some of Brompton’s amazing students! These students have all been presented with Principal’s Awards this term. Sadly we haven’t had assemblies (another COVID causality) where they could get the full acknowledgment but we have had POP UP assemblies in their classroom.
Dear Parents / Caregivers,
Thankyou to our school community for adhering to COVID 19 restrictions and modifications to lifestyle. Although South Australia is doing well we need to do our part to keep it there! Families are still only permitted to access the school grounds (asphalt area) and not enter the classrooms
