We decided to start our year by going away together for three days of professional learning and some team fun. The big house in Hanmer seemed like a good place to return to.We worked, laughed and ate. Sadly we had to start each day with a new Jump Jam song. Hmmmm. It was the perfect way for three new teachers to get to know us and for us to help them to transition to our school. We looked at e-asTTle, Ultranet, Restorative Practice,Performance Appraisal outcomes and a lot more.We have a deep pool of local expertise from our own teachers which we used to learn and challenge each other.
