Over the past two years, teachers at St Bernard’s Batemans Bay have been transforming their teaching practice.
On a visit to the school, journalist Lucy Carroll from the Sydney Morning Herald, experienced high impact teaching practice and explicit instruction in Rebecca Brady’s kindergarten classroom.
Rebecca said “as a school, we’ve changed our whole approach to teaching. We use a lot of repetition, fast-paced learning and intense explicit instruction; behaviour is improving, and the children are so engaged. It’s been a huge turnaround. Kids don’t have time to disengage.”
