Additional Needs Symposium
Making classrooms inclusive, covering; Anxiety, Mental Health & Childhood Trauma, Challenging Behaviours and Language & Processing Disorders. Academics, Experts & Health Professionals share their knowledge and provide practical strategies for educators to implement in the classroom. A two day Symposium designed to bridge the knowledge gap, dispel myths, promote research, and explore additional needs.
Capacity Building School Libraries
Qualified personnel working in school libraries play an important role in supporting literacy development and promoting a love of reading. Improving literacy outcomes of young learners is a key focus area for school library programs and practices. ‘Research suggests that the presence of libraries and qualified librarians in school can exert a positive effect on young people’s literacy learning, with the promotion of reading attitudes and frequency part of the core role of the librarian in schools’ (Merga, 2019).
Leadership for Future Focused Schools
What makes a great principal? The classroom teacher is the most visible person in a child’s life at school, but it is the principal who is responsible for providing a high-quality education for all students. Great principals lead teaching and learning. Great principals hire, develop and retain great teachers. Great principals build a strong school community. Great principals are lifelong learners, staying abreast of contemporary issues.
Wellbeing for Future Focused Schools
Student resilience and wellbeing are essential for both academic and social development, and are optimised by safe, supportive and respectful learning environments. Schools share this responsibility with the whole community. Not only do confident and resilient children with a capacity for emotional intelligence perform better academically, these skills can also contribute to their ability to create strong social bonds and supportive communities, and to maintain healthy relationships and responsible lifestyles.
