Expert teaching has the greatest impact on student achievement. Our teacher's engage in professional development to build their pedagogical knowledge and constantly reflect on their own and other's practice to improve their teaching skills. Recently we conducted a review of the Professional Development attended over the last two years which included: Trauma informed practice - Berry Street Education Model, Smiling Minds, Seven Steps Writing, Brightpath Writing Assessment, SMART Spelling, InitiaLit, Thinking Maths, STEM 500, Phonics Differentiation and High Impact Teaching Strategies, Interception, Creating Clever Classrooms - meeting the sensory needs of students, and Behaviour Support. Teachers considered our next steps and provided feedback to inform School Improvement Planning for 2022 and beyond.
This week we celebrated our amazing SSOs during Support Staff Week, 16 - 20 August. Thank you for your contributions Fiona, Rosary, Mara, Helen, Karen, Marie, Tracy, Harrie, Di and Alysse.
