Week 5 – beginning 8 November, 2021

Millen’s first Level 3 Classroom Teacher!

I would like to congratulate our amazing Art/HASS Teacher and Planet Millen Leader for achieving Level 3 Classroom Teacher. Tam was req uired to prepare a portfolio demonstrating how her knowledge and practice address each of the five Level 3 Classroom Teacher criteria. Following her successful portfolio submission Tam then entered Stage 2 and was required to present a workshop to fellow applicants in front of two Level 3 assessors. This was a gruelling and long process! We are very proud of the wonderful work Tam does here at Millen.

Our Boodja Band is doing an amazing job looking after their trees and reducing what we send to landfill. A huge thank you to many parents who helped sew patches on our repurposed vests. We could do with a few more button up shirts (in all sizes) to make vests from. If you are having a spring clean of your wardrobes, please consider donating – there will be tub outside the art room.

 

From the Art room
