Newsletter – Term 1 Week 8, 2023

St Joseph’s Learning Spaces

We often have people ask us how our rooms operate and why we do what we do. Over the term, I will share with you the reasons why we love our teaching and learning spaces and philosophy.

Reason Number One: Small group workshops allowing for target teaching according to need.
Reason Number Two: Our rooms enable students to move regularly.
Reason Number Three: Our learning spaces enable regular collaboration opportunities.
Reason Number Four: Our learning spaces help build positive relationships.
Reason Number Five: Since beginning this philosophy of teaching and learning, we have seen a significant decline in students sent to the office for misbehaviour. We have noticed greater engagement from students in all year levels.
