Summary of Flagship Programs

Professional Development: Literacy provides quality curriculum resources to each school and works with teachers to enhance their knowledge and skills in teaching English literacy.

Health and Nutrition Program promotes the health and nutrition of students and provides support for agriculture and aquaculture activities to help sustain each school’s feeding program.

$100 Scholarships are provided to at-risk students in grades 4, 5 and 6. The funds provide basic school supplies and the opportunity to engage in leadership programs.

Learning through the Outdoor Environment assists schools to develop ways to enhance outdoor school environments in order to promote student learning through play.

Schools Learning Network aims to encourage and develop greater global understanding for the pupils of the Talomo schools and their twin schools in South Australia. Three delegations of teachers and school heads from all 15 Talomo schools have visited SA, jointly prepared units of work with their paired school counterparts and then implemented and shared what they had learned with their colleagues on their return to their schools.


The Digital Learning Program aims to enhance learning opportunities in the digital realm for grade 4, 5 and 6 students in Talomo - supporting children to become literate and confident in interacting with digital environments, digital learning resources and digital frameworks.

Research, Evaluation and Strategic Innovation Portfolio

The six flagship programs are supported by RESI - a constant process of reflection, review and evaluation occurs in order to inform the organisation and its work.
