Principal’s blog | Curriculum Day Learning
Hello, hello! It’s been a little while since my last post. As you may have heard I will be finishing at Cranbourne Carlisle at the end of this term. The last few weeks have been filled with meetings and the tough task of announcing this news firstly to the staff and then to the children at assembly last week. It’s a bittersweet feeling to leave this school as it has been a big part of my life for nine years. I would like to update you on how the school used our curriculum day last week.
- All Staff bonded over some ice breakers
- All teaching staff participated in a 45 minute workshop discussing the Marrung Aboriginal Education Plan and how we implement the Aboriginal perspective in our planning
- All teaching staff participated in a 45 minute workshop unpacking the Amplify document and discussing how to give more Student Voice, Agency and Leadership to our children
- All teaching staff participated in a 45 minute workshop working on The Learning Place resource
- All teaching staff participated in a 45 minute workshop addressing the Respectful Relationships program and what it looks like in our school context
- All integration aides completed an online literacy course that will allow them to better support our children in need
- All staff spent 2 hours learning about Critical & Creative with Trent Ray from Collective Education thinking and how we can prepare children with future capabilities
- All staff viewed a 1 hour Cyber Safety Project seminar which taught us current online trends for young people
We were lucky enough to have special guests from the Department of Education, Collective Education and the Cyber Safety Project present for us. A day like that has invaluable impact on a school and sparked a range of conversations between our staff. New energy has been placed on some older initiatives, while new passion has been born for some others. The key to a successful curriculum day is that the staff continue to grow… and there is a good lunch!
