  Mrs Britta Brown

Welcome to Cassia Primary School, my name is Mrs Brown and I look forward to being part of the Cassia teaching staff again after a year on maternity leave.

I’m returning part time and my work days are Wednesday to Friday with every second Wednesday off.


In the year 2019 I’m excited to be able to work with a variety of year levels. I will be teaching the Friendly School Plus program in all Pre Primary classes and in Room 10 and Room 14. I’m also providing some internal relief for teachers.


The Friendly Schools Plus program is a whole school research-based approach with the focus on social and emotional learning. At our school we have implemented this program to maximise and sustain effective social skill building and bullying prevention strategies. It is directly linked to the personal and social capabilities outlined in the Australian Curriculum. For each year level key areas of the social and emotional learning model have been developed. For further information regarding the FSP program you can go online and visit the webpage www.friendly schools.com.au.


In Term 1, we are going to look at self-awareness skills and self-managing skills. We will recognise and understand emotions while valuing strength and abilities.

In the following terms we will be working on social awareness, relationship skills and social decision-making.
