The Teacher Development Schools (TDSs) initiative acknowledges that teachers learn best from other teachers. TDS's share their expertise and classroom innovation across schools, networks and professional learning communities. Teachers and schools can access a range of practical support for whole school planning, teaching, learning and assessment.

Mindarie Primary School has been selected as a Teacher Development School in Mathematics and English for 2016-2017. A Board of teachers has been created, led by Mrs Appleton (Mathematics) and Mrs Bewick (English). Together, they will provide Professional Learning opportunities for staff at Mindarie and across other schools and networks. An online network has also been created for us to assist schools in regional areas.

This exciting opportunity is valuable in promoting the amazing work that all staff at Mindarie do. We look forward to further developing and fostering excellence in Mathematics and English in our school.
