1,585kms down, unlimited number to go!

Teach the Teacher has been on the road throughout term 2 and has so far covered a whopping 1585km.

Teach the Teacher on the road

107 students from 8 schools have commenced preparation for their Teach the Teacher professional development day at their school, by attending a ‘Creating Conversations Workshop’.

Throughout these workshops students prepare and plan for the Teach the Teacher PD sessions they will run with their teachers. Using data collected prior to the session students prioritise topics and develop questions that start the conversations with their teachers. By surveying other students the Teach the Teacher committee is able to represent the interests of all students at their school.

Students also learn ice-break activities, facilitation skills that equip them to run the PD session and develop different strategies on how to work collaboratively with their peers and to communicate with their teachers.

Where possible, these workshops are delivered in clusters so that students have the opportunity to network and learn from students at different schools. Students work together to come up with solutions on how they can create positive communities at their school.

“This Teach the Teacher training session was not only an informative meeting, but also an experience-sharing session that gave everyone a better understanding of each school.”
