    School Assembly Episode 7: Developing school policies

    School Assembly Episode 7: Developing school policies

    School Assembly is the podcast that explores what it takes to build a new school from the ground up. In Series 1 we’re following Principal Dr Ray Boyd and Associate Principal Rachael Lehr as they navigate the exciting and challenging journey. Each month, we touch base for updates and reflections on their progress in the newly developing suburb of Dayton, located in the eastern metropolitan city of Swan in Perth, Western Australia.
    We’re well into Term 1 and the staff at Dayton Primary School have been getting to know their students and helping them settle into the new surroundings. Last time out I spoke to Ray and Rachael about recruitment. In this episode we’ll be discussing how they’re developing school policies. One head’s up on terminology, we mention the DFES – that’s the WA Government Department of Fire and Emergency Services – and the ‘Good Standing Policy’ in WA is around student behaviour.

    Teacher Staffroom Episode 44: Celebrating sustainability

    Teacher Staffroom Episode 44: Celebrating sustainability

    According to new data from the annual Mission Australia Youth Survey, the environment is now the number one concern for young people. In fact, of the 18,800 young people aged 15 to 19 who took part in the latest survey, 51% identified the environment as one of the most important issues in Australia compared to 38% in 2021 and 30% in 2020. The results show that 26% of young people were ‘extremely’ or ‘very concerned’ about climate change. In today’s episode of Teacher Staffroom, we're going to run through some of the ways that schools are tackling issues of sustainability in their communities, both here in Australia and internationally. We’ll also highlight some contributions we featured on Teacher this month and bring you up to speed on what we’ve been working on here at the magazine.

    Award-winning Science teachers on increasing participation and 2-ways learning

    Award-winning Science teachers on increasing participation and 2-ways learning

    If you’re a long time-listener of our podcast, you’ll know that each year, 2 winners are announced for the annual Prime Minister’s Prizes for Excellence in Science Teaching – one winner working in primary schools and one winner working in secondary schools.
    The most recent winners were announced in late 2022 and they are George Pantazis from Marble Bar Primary School in remote Western Australia and Veena Nair, from Viewbank College in Melbourne.
    In January this year just before the school year started, we caught up with George and Veena to hear more about the work they’ve been recognised for nationally, and the impact they’re having on student outcomes in their own school settings.

    Improving students’ financial education

    Improving students’ financial education

    Deakin University’s Economics + Maths = Financial Capability project set out to research what can be done differently to support secondary school teachers to prepare financially capable young people. In today’s episode, we're joined by Dr Carly Sawatzki, a teacher educator and educational researcher in Deakin University’s School of Education, and a lead researcher on this project. She shares insights into what the key aims of the project are, some of the key findings to be published in their research report (which was released late last year), and discusses the state of financial education in schools across Australia. Perhaps most importantly for teachers and school leaders though, Carly also shares how opportunities for teaching and learning about finance are framed within the current and new versions of the Australian Curriculum, and provides examples of other educators teaching financial education exceptionally well.

    Building a culture of sustainability in schools

    Building a culture of sustainability in schools

    The most recent instalment of Mission Australia’s Youth Survey – which surveys tens of thousands of Australians aged 15 to 19 – shows that young people are becoming increasingly concerned about the environment. In your school, what initiatives do you have in place to engage students in learning about sustainability, and how their actions can have a positive impact on the environment?
    At one school in Victoria, sustainability is embedded across the school, and in this episode, their Sustainability Coordinator, Venkata Kalva, joins Dominique Russell to discuss their journey to prioritising sustainability in the school community, the function of the school’s Green Team, and advice for other schools across the country looking to prioritise sustainability in their school settings.

Interesting topics but terrible sound

This is a very valuable podcast and it suitable for beginning teachers and very experienced teachers. Unfortunately the sound quality is so bad that I can’t listen to it. I’m surprised that they haven’t fixed this problem. The interviewer also seems very inexperienced. I’ve unsubscribed.

Poor sound quality

Every teacher should listen to this podcast. Even though the sound quality is so poor that it's nearly impossible to listen. Please improve the sound!
