Walford Learning Communities

Our Walford teaching team had a productive start to Term 3, working collaboratively on our recently updated Walford Learning Principles.

Displayed prominently around the school, our Walford Learning Principles are a consistent reminder to our community of the type of learners we strive to be:

  • We are thinkers.
  • We are accountable.
  • We are global learners.
  • We are curious.
  • We are collaborators.
  • We are communicators.

On our Professional Development Day, teachers worked in small focus teams on a Learning Principle of their choice. Accessing a range of contemporary research including case studies, academic readings and podcasts, teams of teachers discussed and designed an ongoing project which will be explored throughout the semester. As lifelong learners, professional growth is valued at Walford, and teachers will look forward to discussing and showcasing their work with a learning gallery at the end of the year.
