Professional Learning

HFPS-182

All staff at our school have an ongoing commitment to professional learning. Over the last two years, we have developed strong learning relationships with teachers from other local schools as part of a Professional Learning Community.

 

The work of our teachers has focused on the development of Assessment for Learning strategies (linked to the Teaching for Effective Learning Framework); the new Australian Curriculum in Maths, English, Science, History & Geography; moderation of student achievement against the Australian Curriculum Achievement Standards; and Backwards Design Planning (Inquiry processes).
