The Support Teacher Literacy and Numeracy (ST:LaN)'s focus is on the collection, analysis and maintenance of data on Literacy and Numeracy achievement and the documentation of responses made to underachievement.
ST:LaNs provide support to school teams and individual teachers in identifying patterns of achievement and selecting intervention strategies at whole school, cohort and individual levels.
Our school has the services of a chaplain, funded partly through the Australian Government's National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program. It is also supported by fundraising through the Local Chaplaincy Committee, and through kind donations by parents and community members. Donations may be made at https://www.suqld.org.au/donate/albany-hills-ss-chaplaincy-tax-deductible/
Our chaplain, Chappy Glenn, works at Albany Hills State School three days each week. Access to the chaplaincy service may be made through the school office.

A big welcome to our new Australian Defence Families. I currently work in the Defence position on Tuesday.

If for some reason you are not receiving the emails please contact me through the school email address firstname.lastname@example.org
