Stamina and Engagement (End of Year Professional Learning Day)

Professional learning is valued at Preshil and we came together at the conclusion of Term 4 to have a shared conversation about Stamina and Engagement!

In 2020, Preshil committed to training all staff in the Berry Street Education Model (BSEM), a model of reflective practice in which teachers are encouraged to create inclusive and nurturing classroom spaces in which children and students can be ‘ready to learn’. The five domains of the BSEM encourage teachers to develop an awareness of how the strategies within the model encourage security, growth and learning. They are: Body, Relationship, Stamina, Engagement and Character.

At the end of Term 4, Preshil staff came together to connect with the topics of Stamina and Engagement.

Throughout the whole day workshop, our Berry Street facilitator Gloria Zahra shared with us strategies and the research underpinning these topics. Both motivating students with strategies that increase their willingness to learn and creating a culture of academic persistence by nurturing resilience, emotional intelligence and a growth mindset.

Thank you to all that attended this valuable session, it is our hope that all members of staff can reflect on the concepts and ideas explored over the holiday break.
