A year ago, a school system that has been rocked by high-profile cases of bullying and neglect was declared “fit for purpose” by the state’s education department.
In December last year, the government announced the creation of the Martin’s School of Excellence in Martinstown, a centrepiece of its education drive.
The school is in Martin’s North-West, a town of just over 15,000 in the north-west of the state.
It is one of the largest school systems in the state and one of just a handful that are not in a school district.
The centrepiece, of course, is its massive high-school.
It has been built with $2.2 billion in government funds, including the largest single-year public investment in Australian education.
It was designed to teach pupils how to work with others, and the curriculum includes vocational subjects, social and emotional learning and English.
It’s a new school that is designed to cater to pupils from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds.
But it’s also a school that has struggled to find a suitable teacher.
“The school system is not the best,” says teacher Chris Kelly.
“They’ve got a lot of learning that they can do, they’re doing really well academically, they’ve got good grades. “
“So the main problem that we’ve had is we’ve been doing a good job with the children, but the school is not delivering that. “
“We’ve got one teacher, but we’ve got four children who are doing very well. “
“Our teacher is really good at teaching, but they are not delivering the high-quality learning that we need. “
“I think they need to be looked after.” “
The Martin’s Education Centre for Excellence was launched in October, just a few months after the death of the school’s first teacher. “

The Martin’s Education Centre for Excellence was launched in October, just a few months after the death of the school’s first teacher.
It aimed to make the school the best in the area, according to its website.
But just days later, the Martinstown school was declared unfit for purpose, according the state education department’s report on the school system.
It said it was “inadequate” and “out of place”.
The report said it had a “disproportionate number of staff”.
In response to the report, the Department of Education and Training said it would “rethink” the school.
The Martin’s Centre for Teaching Excellence will now be given “more attention” and be given a “better role in shaping a successful school system”.
“Martinstown is in a difficult situation,” said Education Minister Rob Stokes.
“As a school community, we need to work to make sure that all students can learn, to ensure that the teachers and the principals are providing the best service to their students.”
But he also said it wasn’t the end of the story.
“If we are able to provide a quality education, we will always be able to attract more students,” he said.
The education department said it will now “look at ways” to “reduce the school-to-prison pipeline”.
But Mr Stokes said it wouldn’t be the end.
“What’s not being done is the fact that the school isn’t meeting the needs that the children are seeking,” he told 7.30.
“There are a lot more people than there are teachers in the school, but that doesn’t mean they are being trained.”

The Martinville High School in Martinfield was one of five Martinstown schools in the Martin District which was declared to be in “substandard” condition in December last
