A 'happy, safe and well-supported' tribe

It's been a big week for Bradshaw Primary School: on top of teacher-librarian Jo Sherrin's national gong (see separate story),
the school was a winner in the 2011 Northern Territory Smart Schools
Awards for "Excellence in Student Inclusion and Wellbeing".

The fact that the school applied for that category in the awards
reflects its values: the first thing that principal Jill Tudor mentions
is keeping children happy, safe and well-supported so that teaching and
learning are the best they can be.

Then there are the school's few guiding 'e' words: equity –
children get what they need, rather than everyone getting the
same;expectations – they're high as with the right support every child
can learn; effort – the harder you work, the smarter you get.

It's Mrs Tudor's third year at the helm at Bradshaw, but she credits
former principal Ursula Balfour for putting in the "hard yards" to
develop the inclusive culture that is the now hallmark of the
school. Pictured: "Happy, safe,
well-supported children" at work: Karen Stewart watches her students
using their "One Laptop Per Child" computers to practice their spelling.
