Women in Educational Leadership Network

Meetings



18 October 2018

Guest Speaker - Megan Wynne CN11742


We should always have three friends in our lives - one who walks ahead who we look up to and
follow; one who walks beside us, who is with us every step of our journey; and then, who we
reach back for and bring along after we’ve cleared the way. Michelle Obama

The networks invite you to come and play all of these roles.

The afternoon network meetings are for anyone interested in gender equality and the role of
women in educational leadership. The meetings are held at various member schools across
the metropolitan area each term. The meetings usually allow for networking from 4.30pm to
5.00pm followed by a speaker from 5.00pm to around 5.30pm. The meeting concludes with
refreshments and further networking opportunities.

Child Protection: including Mandatory Reporting

of Child Sexual Abuse, Grooming and Child

Abuse Prevention by all staff


Kate Stannard (AISWA)

19 October 2018


Within this Professional Learning, we look at three key aspects, Mandatory Reporting of Sexual
Abuse, Identifying and Responding to Sexual Behaviours and Grooming.

All registered teachers must report to the Mandatory Reporting Service of CPFS if they, in the
course of their work, form a belief based on reasonable grounds that a child is being or has
been sexually abused. This session unpacks what this means in practical terms and ensures
that all staff are confident with the process of Mandatory Reporting, the indicators that might
lead to a Report being made and what further actions the school can take. All teachers and
other staff, including chaplains, counsellors, psychologists, education assistants and support
staff, are strongly encouraged to attend.

In the PL there is discussion on how to identify and respond to sexual behaviours in children
and young people. When children and young people display sexual behaviour which increases
their vulnerability or causes harm to another, adults have a responsibility to take action to
provide support and protection.

Due to the subject matter, children (under 18 years) are not permitted to attend.

PART Training Course (Predict, Assess and

Respond to Aggressive/Challenging Behaviours)


- October


Tania Wray and Maggie Balfe (AISWA)

22 & 23 October 2018

The course covers skills including crisis communication, evasion, releases from holds and safe
restraints, as well as examining the legal ramifications of any aggressive interaction, preparation
and planning to avoid aggressive incidents and debriefing after a crisis. It is suitable for staff
who manage students with challenging/aggressive behaviour, including students with special
needs. It is based on the premise that employees who have developed a systematic approach
to predicting, understanding and managing aggressive or assaultive behaviour are less likely
to injure or be injured than those who have not, and will be more able to confidently defuse or
contain aggression. Who should attend: A team of at least 2 staff, who will become the school’s
primary support group when developing policy and working with community members whose
behaviour may be aggressive.

Building Cultural Competence in Early

Childhood Educators





Maree Whitely (AISWA)


26 October 2018

This Professional Learning afternoon will showcase the Action Learning projects by six AISWA
schools, from a range of diverse Early Learning settings and community contexts. The focus
of the ‘Building Cultural Competence’ project was to frame this work on current programs (if
any) within the school, building capacity around the EYLF and curriculum links such as the
‘Intercultural and Ethical Understanding’ General Capability and the Aboriginal and/or Asia
Cross Curriculum Priority. The successful participants were guided by suggested resources
and ongoing school-based PL support. Participants were also required to attend several related
activities, such as AISWA Professional Learning sessions.
In partnership with Early Childhood Australia, please join us for an afternoon of personal and
professional learning as we hear from these wonderful Early Childhood Educators as they share
their personal stories of building their own cultural awareness and how this is transforming the
way they bring these new insights into their learning environments.

On Entry Assessment Training 2018






Deborah Martin (AISWA)


14 November 2018

The teacher training for the On-entry Assessment Program is now available to schools who
have returned an Expression of Interest form to AISWA.

Teachers will need to bring along laptops for these sessions to log onto the Department of
Education website.
The On-entry Assessment program is an assessment for learning, rather than an assessment
of learning. It enables teachers to develop an authentic understanding of a child’s current
capabilities and needs.

The purpose of the assessment:

• To provide the classroom teacher with information about the skills and understandings that
their students bring to compulsory schooling

• To identify, early in the school year, students who may require intervention, consolidation or
extension

• To inform the planning and delivery of targeted programs, reflective of each child’s needs
and capabilities

The information is also expected to assist in the development of intentional teaching for play-
based programs reflective of student needs.

The workshop will take participants through a backward design planning process that begins
with goal setting utilising the achievement standards and content descriptions. The focus is on
embedding explicit assessment practices throughout the unit of work so that informed decisions
about progress and achievement can be made with authentic assessment data. The context
will be English and literacy but the workshop outcome of improved programming skills will be
applicable to any learning area planning.

Narrative Writing: What can we learn from

musicians and artisits?


Pat Kershaw (AISWA)

26 October 2018


Where do ideas come from? How can students be supported to improvise within the
structure of a narrative in order to create stories that truly engage an audience? This
workshop will explore the classroom environment that allows creativity to flourish as
students are motivated to compose original narratives.

Participants will consider a range of modes (written, video, interactive) for presenting
student stories to a wide audience. Ideas and activities from the workshop will be able to be
used in your classroom on the following day.

The workshop will include a presentation by Vanessa Bradley, a local artist who is working
with teachers to support them, and their students, to try new ideas and develop creativity
skills across the curriculum. Vanessa has undergone training with Paul Collard from The
Art of Learning in the UK and has worked with teachers of Years 4 and 5 in Perth with
considerable success.

The WA Curriculum tells us that students create a range of imaginative texts including
narratives. The NAPLAN narrative writing marking guide refers to the creation, selection
and crafting of ideas, and the creation of distinct characters within settings that have a
sense of place and atmosphere. The Gonski report (2018) states that an important goal
of Australian education should be to “equip every child to be a creative, connected and
engaged learner in a rapidly changing world”. Within the necessary learning of narrative
text structure and appropriate language features and grammar, creativity can be forgotten
and motivation to write can be low. Even in classrooms where motivation to write is high,
stories can be unsuccessful in terms of audience engagement. This hands-on workshop will
examine ways in which students - and teachers - can produce successful stories.

Talking your way into writing


Pat Kershaw (AISWA)

29 October 2018


This 2 x 2 hour workshops focus on teaching decoding through the GUIDED READING This full
day workshop will draw upon information contained in current commercially-available publications,
such as Talk for Writing’s imitation, innovation and invention strategy. Teachers will be taken
through a process that will allow them to embed successful strategies for talk in their planning.

Pie Corbett (Talk for Writing), Deb Myhill (Talk to Text) and Robin Alexander (Talk for Learning)
understand the importance of talk in developing effective writing. Teachers know that students who
read widely are usually the best writers because through reading, they internalise the patterns
of writing. Current classroom research demonstrates that students who can ‘talk’ texts also
internalise the various patterns of writing, committing them to long-term memory. Even students
who may not be enthusiastic readers are enthusiastic talkers of text when they are actively
engaged in their learning. These students have a greater chance of succeeding as writers than
those who do not engage in talk.

This full day workshop will draw upon information contained in current commercially-available
publications, such as Talk for Writing’s imitation, innovation and invention strategy. Teachers will
be taken through a process that will allow them to embed successful strategies for talk in their
planning. They will be able to experience activities that can be used with students in the classroom
on the next day.

A Talk for Writing network meeting will be held on Monday, 26 November for AISWA teachers
who have implemented T4W in their classrooms or who are considering implementing it in 2019.
Participants from the Talking your Way into Writing workshop are invited to attend.

and the creation of distinct characters within settings that have a sense of place and atmosphere.
The Gonski report (2018) states that an important goal of Australian education should be to
“equip every child to be a creative, connected and engaged learner in a rapidly changing world”.
Within the necessary learning of narrative text structure and appropriate language features and
grammar, creativity can be forgotten and motivation to write can be low. Even in classrooms where
motivation to write is high, stories can be unsuccessful in terms of audience engagement. This
hands-on workshop will examine ways in which students - and teachers - can produce successful
stories.

reading of their students.

Scaffolding Adolescent Literacy is a full day of Professional Development covering 3 key topics.
Participants receive the Scaffolding Adolescent Literacy workbook filled with practical classroom

deeper understanding of the reading process. Teachers will acquire practical activities to teach
and improve reading comprehension for their students.

support students in building their academic and subject specific vocabulary.

3. Speaking & Listening. The third aspect of the course equips teachers with effective tools and
ideas to strengthen listening skills and engage their students in rich classroom dialogue, a key
factor for improvement in student learning.
