I learn, we learn

Southern Riverina news - - FOCUS ON EDUCATION -

This year’s Ed­u­ca­tion Week theme — I Learn, We Learn — is a theme Ber­ri­gan Pub­lic School is very proud to say we be­lieve in, and fol­low closely across our school com­mu­nity.

Shar­ing our learn­ing — whether it be our stu­dents, staff or par­ents — is a pow­er­ful strat­egy in devel­op­ing our learn­ing.

Our stu­dents are grad­u­ally be­gin­ning to un­der­stand the im­por­tance of be­ing re­spon­si­ble for their learn­ing out­comes.

The staff are recog­nis­ing the im­por­tance of the stu­dents be­ing aware of what and why they are learn­ing.

And the par­ents con­tinue to un­der­stand the im­por­tance of en­gag­ing in their stu­dents’ learn­ing.

Our school’s con­tin­ued fos­ter­ing and devel­op­ment of our Bi­JOU Learn­ing Com­mu­nity — which is shar­ing and learn­ing across our three schools in Ber­ri­gan, Jer­ilderie and Urana — has shown very pos­i­tive re­sults.

The pro­fes­sional learn­ing for our staff is a ma­jor win­ner be­cause by com­bin­ing re­sources we are able to en­sure proac­tive, pro­duc­tive and rel­e­vant training for our staff which re­sults in our stu­dent learn­ing out­comes con­tin­u­ing to im­prove.
