Wednesday 13th of November – SPEAKING UP FOR YOUR PREP CHILD – Free Workshop

Oct 19, 2013   //   by bisadmin   //   Events  //  No Comments
LEARN HOW TO HELP YOUR PREP CHILD NAVIGATE THE FIRST YEAR OF SCHOOL
FREE WORKSHOP

Are you worried about your child’s transition to school next year? How do you share your concerns with your child’s teacher? Each child is different so how do you avoid your child being overlooked in class?

Learn how to communicate effectively with your child’s teacher about:

  • Learning styles and special needs
  • Assessment and NAPLAN
  • Bullying
  • Values
  • Curriculum design

The first year of school can be a challenging journey for both parent and child. Start it with a clear plan: identify what matters to you. You will leave the session with a written commitment to your child’s education, reminding yourself when you need to stand up and advocate for them during the first, vital years of schooling.

A student Centric Approach to Education (5-18 years)
Presented by Alan Wagstaff and facilitated by Inspired EC

Are you feeling disenchanted with the education system? Do you believe that the way we approach education in Australia needs to change? Perhaps you are a School Teacher who feels that there must be another way or an Early Childhood Teacher who is concerned about the disconnect of your interest based, explorative program and the primary education system. Are you looking for an approach to education that values and develops the whole person, that smoothes and encourages the path to further learning and that infuses learning with entrepreneurial zeal and authenticity? Then this is the session for you! In this two hour session, Alan Wagstaff will unpack The Three Springs approach to education and share his knowledge, passion and experience.

Who is this suitable for?
Primary school teachers, High School Teachers, Early Childhood Educators, Principals, Assistants, Parents, Anyone interested in Education!
