Melbourne School introduces The Frank Dando Sports Academy in Ashwood, for all your education and learning for your childs future, We invite you to explore and learn more about the quality 21st Century education with The Frank Dando Sports Academy.
The Frank Dando Sports Academy is committed to :
The Frank Dando Sports Academy first opened in 1980 to provide an education for boys of age 10 to 16 who, although usually highly intelligent, have failed in the mainstream schools. Such boys may occasionally arrive with reputations for bullying or violence. Others may lack confidence, showing symptoms of ADS/HD or simply not working at all.
The school aims to increase their self esteem and health through intensive physical education and quickly improve their mathematics and English through intensive small group tuition. Usually after one or two years boys can return to mainstream schools.
Equal time is given to academic subjects and physical education. The academic program is taught in the same way as the physical education program, by the same teachers. Boys conform to a set of sensible non-negotiable rules, do regular homework and meet demanding academic standards in maths, reading and written expression. The low teacher-pupil ratio enables boys to progress to a higher than normal standard and boost their self image.
Steeped in history, The Frank Dando Sports Academy is one of the popular school in the Ashwood area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
