Our students are supported by significant EAL/D and Community Language programs as well as targeted literacy and numeracy initiatives. The school has an ongoing commitment to the development and delivery of quality teaching and learning programs with an emphasis on all students being literate, numerate and curious. This is achieved through strong, strategic professional learning for all staff that promotes the consistent delivery of high quality, differentiated and engaging learning opportunities that cater for each student’s individual needs, passions, talents and potential. Canley Heights Public School has a strong commitment to student wellbeing to address the social/emotional needs of students.
