Gifts to the UWCSEA Fund have supported a range of staff professional development programmes. In 2016/2017, gifts enhanced learning for our youngest students on East Campus through a series of Reggio Emilia workshops. Gifts also enriched cognitive coaching practices and strengthened staff and student leadership through ‘Fieldwork’ sessions with educational specialist, Pam Harper.
“Schools only have two assets really – the physical locations where learning happens, and our teachers’ expertise in helping learners construct understandings, practise skills and gain knowledge. The professional growth of staff is not a nice-to-have, but the only way in which we can thrive as an institution and fulfil our mission.” Stuart MacAlpine, Director of Teaching and Learning, East Campus
