As pictured above, our bottle top art project is now complete. Thanks to Ash Manser for her creative idea and then working with our students to assemble the feathers using donated bottle tops.
We are really proud of the way this came together as a masterpiece. This art project demonstrates how when we all work together as a community we become a work of art – everyone played a part…from all of the donations of bottle tops, to classes for sorting and designing feathers, then working with Ash to attach the bottle tops. Thanks also to Greg and Mr Watkins for attaching the bird to the wall.

External School Review
Dernancourt School has been selected to be involved in the External School Review process this term. All Department schools are reviewed as part of the school improvement process; we were last reviewed in 2015. The focus of this review is to evaluate our performance in improving achievement, growth, challenge, engagement and equity. It involves the panel speaking with staff, students and Governing Council. Please contact the Front Office if you do not wish your child to be interviewed as part of the External School Review and a form will be sent to you.
We have an excellent record of improvement planning and student achievement and this will be an opportunity for us to hone our improvement processes. The Review Team consists of a Review Officer from the Department for Education team and a Review Principal. The Review will be conducted in the school on Monday April 1st and Tuesday April 2nd.
The recommendations we receive will be communicated with community.
