North Harbour Learning Community

The North Harbour Learning Community has been developed between Chatswood High School, Chatswood Public School, Mowbray Public School and Castle Cove Public School. This provides opportunities for students from local schools to enrich and empower their thinking.

In 2011 fifty students from these schools each wrote, illustrated and edited a picture book for primary school students. primary school students were buddied with high school students and worked together by editing and commenting on each other's work. The published works were exceptional and exceeded everyone's expectations. Each book will be placed for loan in each school and Willoughby Library. The Young Authors Program was an authentic learning task and students learn well in this context. The literacy and creative skills gained are quite complex and our students met the challenges brilliantly. Read more about the Young Authors Program
