Empowering Local Schools

MOPS is one of 229 NSW schools participating in the Empowering Local Schools National Partnership (ELSNP). It is a federally funded trial aimed at schools having increased autonomy in making local decisions.  It is different from the NSW Government's Local Schools Local Decisions (LSLD) initiative, which affects every NSW public school.  LSLD, like ELSNP, allows schools to have a greater say in their organisation and management.

Apple Distinguished School

We were recently recognised as an Apple Distinguished School and it's a great honour.  Not because it has anything to do with the Apple product, but rather, because the excellent work done by teachers and students over a long period of time has been acknowledged.  Only four schools in NSW have received this accolade and MOPS is the only public school.  It says a lot about our school.

Follow us on Twitter

We'd like you to follow us on Twitter.  Click on the link in the sidebar, follow us and get messages about what's going on here at MOPS.  In particular, find out when the weekly newsletter is available to read online.  We can get news of cancellations and other changes to routine out to you really quickly via Twitter.

If you've never used Twitter before, don't be phased by it.  It's easy and it'll help to make our communication with parents a lot better.  So, what are you waiting for?

School Attendance

 

Good attendance at school is one way of ensuring that a child is given every opportunity to succeed.  Patterns of poor attendance, including late arrival at school as well as whole day absences, often lead to under achievement and social concerns.
