Linda Lenord, Head Teacher Student Support - Heritage Christian School, NSW (November, 2015)
"This was the first time we have embarked on a whole (junior) school, on-line PD course. It was gratifying to see early scepticism give way to genuine growth and learning. Any opportunity that provides for and delivers on improved outcomes for our students is desirable – to see the increase of commonly used terminology across the junior school is one outcome that I believe is really quite significant, and will hopefully provide a springboard into further such discussions and adoption of practice."
Principal - Walford Anglican School for Girls, Hyde Park, SA (November, 2014)
"The course proved very beneficial for the entire staff (including support staff) as it provided great opportunity to observe best practice and stimulate discussion. The experience and knowledge levels of my staff is very mixed from new start teachers to teachers with over 20 years in the profession. Sharing feedback of experience and knowledge was invaluable."
Stuart Crawford, Principal - Glenmore Road Public School, NSW (December, 2014)
"The pace of the course is well thought through, giving teachers time to engage with the teaching material and then opportunity to implement. The sharing of the forum with all participants is an excellent idea as you are able to read about other teachers thoughts and practice to encourage your own practice."
