School Development Days
The focus for our last School Development Day was Maths and Technologies. A school focus is increasing the capacity of staff to use STEM resources to develop students’ language and problem solving skills. Teachers are excited to apply this learning to the classroom. Please note that our next School Development Day is Thursday 12th August 2021. Students from the WCLDC do not attend school on this day.
