Event description

Description

Neighbourhood schools are the heart of our communities.

Inclusive education is about how we develop and design our schools, classrooms, programmes and activities so that all students learn and participate together in their local environment.

Creating Everyone’s School invites you – teachers, learning support staff, caregivers, family members – to explore inclusive education in a real school setting. Contribute your own ideas and learn new strategies to improve and expand your practice. See value in your children and yourself. Be an informed advocate for inclusion and a champion for equity.


PRICE FOR THE TWO DAYS: $150 early bird (until 6 April), $200 full price.


Participants will learn how to:

  • Develop individual strengths and gifts, as well as high and appropriate expectations for each child.
  • Work on individual goals ensuring participation in the life of the classroom and with other students.
  • Involve parents in their child’s education and in the activities of their school.
  • Foster a school culture of respect and belonging.
  • Facilitate friendships between children, each with their own individual needs and abilities.
  • Positively affect both their school and community to appreciate diversity and inclusion on a broader level.
  • Ensure the right of all children to play, grow and learn together.
