This month I have focused on curriculum development, in particular working alongside our teachers to develop Key Understandings across our 6 curriculum areas (Literacy and Numeracy are stand alone Core subjects), Health and Physical Education, Science, Social Sciences, Technology and the Arts. By ensuring we have input from all staff they will feel a part of the end product and be travelling in the same waka along the journey. I plan on putting our new curriculum and resources into a multitouch book so that all staff can easily access it. I created our first draft Graduate Profile image with feedback from staff merely as a starting point. We initially decided to employ an outside graphic design company to refine and develop our ideas but after our initial consultation with them realised that we actually needed our students to be a part of this and that this was the perfect opportunity.
