Guildford Grammar School is hosting its inaugural one-day Excellence in Classroom Teaching conference, for primary and secondary school teachers, as well as people training to be teachers.  Perth teachers are often frustrated by the lack of opportunites to enjoy good quality professional development focusing on classroom practice which they can use immediately with their own students.

To fill this gap, our conference presents a wide range of relevant workshops, sharing strategies and resources that can be taken back and used immediately in your classroom.  Each delegate will have the opportunity to participate in four workshops of their choice, from those outlined below.  Popular sessions will be held several times to ensure as many delegates as possible are able to attend the workshops of their choice.

The workshops on offer are:
  • Investment in Personal Excellence (IIPE)
  • Asia Literacy in English
  • Team Development
  • Teaching Religion
  • Castaway
  • Teaching Chinese

  • Indigenous Education Programs
