The Swan Extended Schools Hub
This Hub is based in the Midland/Swan region and involves a cluster of three primary schools and a senior high school. Its objective is to improve literacy and numeracy, advancement to year 12 and ultimately successful transition to post-secondary education and employment for the young people of Middle Swan, Swan View, Clayton View Primary Schools and Swan View Senior High School. The Hub will develop and implement a school-community partnership approach, tailored to the needs of the surrounding community, leveraging and coordinating services for young people and their families.
The Hub is receiving an enthusiastic response from the school communities, who are welcoming the support, strategic input and enhanced interaction between the schools. It is hoped that the knowledge gained from this project will help develop the extended schools model in other schools.
