Your school and your students could turn creativity into cash cows…..
Do you have a great idea for a school-community partnership but need a partner, or funding?
Many students learn better by doing. By partnering with industry schools can make projects a fun way students and business can work and learn together. It could be fixing a car, or researching a business challenge... Our role is to form partnerships between schools, parents and the the business community.
One of the most impressive things about Cranebrook High is the way the teachers, parents and the community are working in a real partnership to support the school’s plan for student success.

Maths Deadlys is an exciting partnership which brings Indigenous students from Cranebrook's primary schools together in a high school environment for a team based maths game show event. The students receive support and coaching from parents, community members, teachers and their high school peers to help them prepare for the contest. Deb Summerhayes, Principal of Cranebrook High says “With maths becoming increasingly vital for future careers, the Maths Deadlys program provides a foundation for developing and practicing numeracy skills prior to the students commencing high school. The whole of community involvement has left participants spreading the message that ‘Maths can be FUN!’”. Students work to solve maths problems in teams and earn points during the day towards a trophy for the school. A wide range of organisations donate prizes and guest appearances by Penrith Panther footballers adds to all the excitement. A total of 14 teams participated in the first round of the year with the winning team being from Llandilo Public School. The cheering crowd of students left no doubt that maths can be fun and the students at Cranebrook love the Maths Deadlys. Cranebrook High has an Action Team for Partnerships (ATP) that proactively works with teachers, parents and the broader community to drive student success. “Quite simply students learn best when teachers, parents and the community all work together in a true partnership to support students” said Ian Palmer of the Partnership Broker Program working with the Cranebrook ATP. The next competitive round of the Maths Deadlys will be held in Term 3, with plans underway for UWS trainee teachers to conduct practice events between matches. If the Maths Deadlys keep growing in popularity and support, who knows maybe one day Maths will challenge sport for the biggest crowd.
