The English Learning Area at Santa Maria College has been recognised nationally for its outstanding achievement in teaching writing skills. ACARA recognised the College’s WRITE! program as best practice in Australia, pointing to the significant and measurable value-added to student and staff skills and engagement. WRITE! has involved significant investment in the five teacher practices CEWA recognises as enhancing learning. Each staff member has completed ten workshops designed to improve pedagogy. They have invested deeply in a culture of relationships, growth mindset, and the development of students’ metacognition. Most of all, Santa Maria has made writing fun and engaging!
