Learning at Albert Street
At Moe (Albert Street) Primary School, our purposeful planning for learning is based on the numeracy and literacy data collected as per our prep-6 assessment schedule as well as pupil free assessment days held before the beginning of the school year. Extensive interviews are held with each new family to ensure the student is appropriately placed with staff and students and their social and academic needs meet
Albert St Primary School comprises of Junior unit (P-2) and a Middle/Senior unit (years 3-6) based around collaborative teaching and learning. Health & Physical Education and Visual Art and Music are also taught across the school.
Our curriculum allows every student the opportunity to develop goals, experience success, and identify opportunities for further learning. It is through the development of the whole person – the intellectual, physical, emotional and social dimensions – that an Albert Street Primary School student can dare to dream and reach their potential in society.
Albert Street Playgroup
We currently have two playgroups operating at Albert Street which are held each Thursday.
The first one from 9:00am to 11:00am is facilitated by Save the Children and caters for 0-4 year olds (contact Janie Lee at Save the Children on 5127 7270). The second playgroup is facilitated by parents and runs from 1:00pm to 3:00pm (contact the school on 5127 1966). We have story time, outdoor play, music and singing and relaxation amongst other activities.
After School Programs
After school programs are conducted at Albert Street to encourage children to participate in sport and craft activities they may not have had the opportunity to experience. Currently on offer are soccer and Busy Bodies, both on Monday night between 3:00pm and 4:15pm.
Albert Street offers library as part of its specialist programs. Students visit the library each week to exchange books, research using our computer bank as well as learn about general library usage. Each year our students participate in the Premier's Reading Challenge and celebrate book week and we also hold major events such as Book Fair.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. This year Steve Burns is teaching our S.T.E.M program. Children are being taught how to use hand and power tools, draw and make electronic circuits, magnetism and electromagnetism, robotics and coding.
Music and Drama is taught by Reggie Cleef. Children learn how to play various instruments, learn singing and movement and also drama. Reggie will be working towards preparing the children for our concert later this year.
If you have an interest in gardening, this program is for you. We are establishing a Community garden where teachers, students and parents plant harvest and cook together. We have a garden box for each class which is managed by volunteering parents. We also have chooks that are cared for by the school community. Jess Woodhouse runs a gardening club during lunch times on Wednesdays. Children learn about sustainability, planting and work with our partners Latrobe Community Health and Rotary. Thy are currently planning for the installation of a pizza oven in our community garden.
