ECU Partnership & Student Visit


Mount Lawley Senior High School hosted 20 ECU students to observe and learn from experts in the field and in an environment away from formal practicum for a week. Our HASS teachers volunteered to be involved in this trial. The Pre-Service teachers were final-year HASS students and attended with 2 ECU Course Coordinators. Their visit aimed to observe outstanding teachers in action, followed by discussing what makes an exceptional teacher. They also had a session with some of our ‘newish’ teachers, where they discussed the best strategies to prepare for their first year as graduate teachers and strategies used to overcome the challenges of starting full-time employment in a school. The final session is with Principal Lesley Street and Associate Principal Michael Camilleri, where they looked at employment in the Public School System.
