Primary Years Programme (PYP) Update – Term 1 2024

Share This Post

Last year I transitioned into the role of Primary Years Programme Coordinator here at Arlington. I have over 10 years of experience teaching and leading in both PYP and Victorian Curriculum aligned kindergartens and primary schools. I hold a Master of Instructional Leadership degree with a focus on using data to lead school wide change and enhancing the transition from Kindergarten to School. Working on a school wide pedagogical leadership team and alongside our kindergarten team AND primary school team in our unique and connected community is something I feel very lucky to do.

We often speak about children having agency, but within my role, teacher agency is also at the forefront of mind. Our teachers, children, families and community members all bring unique skills, experiences and passions to Preshil. My role entails individually and collectively developing our pedagogy, sense of community and inquiry learning to drive student engagement and autonomy. I look forward to sharing more about the learning that our staff facilitate here at Arlington from Kindergarten to Year 6, as well as beyond with connections and throughlines to the MYP and DP over at BK.
