The Aboriginal Education Tutorial Scheme is an enrichment program offered two days a week at Baynton West P.S where students are provided with the opportunity to work intensively in small groups to support the development of their literacy skills. Our trained EAL/D teacher, Mrs Louise Woodvine and our Aboriginal Islander Education Officers, Ms Tracey Mulardy and Mrs Kylie Giddens work Two-Way together to facilitate the program.
Valuing Aboriginal and Torres Strait culture and fostering cultural identity is integral to the core values of the program. The code-switching stairway incorporates the acknowledgement of Aboriginal English as a legitimate dialect of English and forms a link to Standard Australian English and the Western Australian Curriculum for our students.
Attendance at school is essential.
