In September, the teaching team was appointed to the new learning program which will commence operating at the Glebe Youth Service from October 19.
Caterina di Girolamo is the full time teacher, Paul Drury will be working as a part time teacher (2 days/week), and Jan Flanagan will be assisting Caterina and Paul on a full time basis.
All are experienced educators who bring a wide range of skills to the new learning program.
In recent weeks the team has attended a three-day workshop run by Big Picture Education, Australia in Shepparton, Victoria. They also met with John Hogan (Big Picture) for three days in Sydney.
Ann King and Margaret Wheeler (both former principals) are working with the team as advisors.
In the coming weeks, the teaching team will contribute to this blog.
