The start of Term 2 for 2022 saw many schools in the Archdiocese participate in Catalyst professional learning.

The largest professional learning event was HITP In Action Day 2 with Dr Lorraine Hammond, which was held at the Rex Hotel and had over 250 attendees from 7 different schools. Participating schools included –

  • St Anthony’s, Wanniassa
  • Holy Family, Gowrie
  • St Clare of Assisi, Conder
  • St Mary’s, Moruya
  • St Bede’s, Braidwood
  • Mother Teresa, Harrison
  • St Francis of Assisi, Calwell

Feedback from the day found that over 80% of participants felt the session provided clear and actionable strategies that they could use in their classrooms.


Holy Spirit, Nicholls also welcomed Dr Lorraine Hammond to facilitate Let’s Decode training, which provides impactful teaching practice to build the reading ability of our youngest learners.


Many other schools chose to select from the numerous online learning materials available in the Catalyst Resource Hub. Merici College completed the newly released HITP Theory & Practice 3 – Reading Instruction and one of the 8 available Catalyst Online Units.
