Topic outline

  • Welcome

    This is an area accessible ONLY to staff members of Mt Orange School. It is a place for all staff members to:

    • keep up to date with important news and changes in and around the organisation
    • access common documents (eg. policies, procedures, lists etc...)
    • announce events they would like other staff members to know about
    • run social competitions, awards, events
    • and more ...

    Just like any staffroom.

  • Understanding Dyslexia

    Did you hear about the dyslexic devil worshipper? He sold his soul to Santa!

    Or maybe you heard about the dyslexic agnostic insomniac? He lay awake for hours at night wondering if there was a dog?

    Well if you found those jokes entertaining, spare a thought for those we're mocking:

    Dyslexia is a common learning difficulty that mainly affects the way people read and spell words.

    This mini unit of work will introduce you to dyslexia, what it is, how to diagnose it and ways in which you can support students who have it.

    OK - Here we go...

  • New Staff Induction and PD

    This section is for members of staff new to Mount Orange and for highlighting professional development opportunities.

  • Policies

    Find our whole school and departmental policies here. 

    Colleagues please note: It is much easier for you to edit your policies if you add them to Moodle as a "book"  (see example below) rather than in documents in folders.
