Performance and achievements

Together we shape tomorrow paintingFrenchville has a long history of providing quality educational outcomes for students.  In 2010 and 2011 our school was recognised as one of the highest performing State schools as identified in the teaching and learning audit.  This achievements was published in The Courier Mail and The Morning Bulletin.  In 2015 our school review compared Frenchville's achievements to the National School Improvement Tool with positive results being published for the school community in the executive summary of the school review. 

We are proud of the achievements of our students and staff members.  In 2012 and 2013 we were shortlisted for the State Showcase Excellence Awards in the categories of 'Academic Success' and 'Excellence in the Early and Primary Years'. 

Frenchville students consistently perform well in testing and competitions, as individuals and in teams.  We are very proud of these achievements and we make a point of celebrating them on social media, on this website, on our digital school sign, at assemblies and in our newsletter.

Our one to one laptop program has been recognised for its innovation in the local area and nationally.  In 2012 Frenchville was one of only twenty 'Microsoft Partners in Learning Schools' in Australia.  We often host visits for other schools wanting to adopt similar innovations.  In 2014 we trialed the use of XO computer devices with every year four student, whilst continuing our optional one to one programs in years five to seven.  In 2015, we implemented a 'Bring Your Own Device' (BYOX) trial from year five.  In 2016 we commenced our trial of the Makerspace Classroom, one of only seven primary school spaces in the State with this capacity.  This trial will provide new possibilities for students as they solve problems using science, technology, engineering and maths, using the latest digital tools.

Frenchville's academic success has been consistently recognised in the Central Queensland Region for the rate of improvement and achievement and relative gain against State and National benchmarks.  Our strongly embedded pedagogical framework shapes consistent evidence-based practices across all classrooms and has contributed to our performance outcomes.

Our school has a strong improvement focus and we set rigorous targets for further improvements.  Our strategic plan (PDF, 643 KB) and annual implementation plan (PDF,715KB)  contain more details about our aspirations for future improvements.  The annual implementation plan is a meaningful record of achievement, and a statement of direction that meets school and systemic requirements. It is a planning document developed by the principal in collaboration with the school and community, based on the school strategic plan and departmental strategic documents. The AIP establishes direction for the coming 12 months, whilst the strategic plan is the longer term planning document setting the direction for a four year period.
