Positive behaviour for learning

Collaborating and implementing whole school program with staff to communicate and illustrate a highly successful approach for student well-being and behaviour. The program included visual, verbal and written communications in a school with 97% non-speaking English parents and carers.

We were privileged to have Suzy’s expertise and advice to create and produce our school’s PBL program using specific context and key practices for our school learning and teaching. This includes communication strategies for a school with 97% non- speaking English backgrounds.

Aboriginal Education

Promoting Aboriginal attendance and recognition through diverse programs ­– Cuddie Cuddie sharing traditional culture around the world with Aboriginal storytelling; Proud and Deadly Awards partnership between Aboriginal Education, DET, Local and Regional Aboriginal Education Consultative Groups; and Buunji National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Conference.

With limited notice for Buunji, the National Aboriginal Education Conference, Suzy guided our presenters on content, strategy and presentation for their specific educational areas – Black ANZACS, Proud and Deadly Awards, Community and Connection Program and Boys Engagement Program. This allowed our team to effectively convey our programs to positively influence teacher engagement for lesson planning.

Suzy’s work with renewing our Aboriginal Education brand was extremely well received by our colleagues and Aboriginal groups throughout the Riverina.
