The school leadership and teachers from three schools in Shepparton Victoria discuss their collaborative professional learning community. The PLC provides a mechanism to draw numeracy leaders together from each school to work with a math consultant. Informed by their work with the consultant the numeracy leaders trial new activities in their own classrooms and then plan and run professional learning sessions for the teachers from all three schools. The sessions introduce teachers to the trialed activities and provide support and advice for them in introducing the activities into their classrooms.
St Georges Road Primary School services a culturally and linguistically diverse community. The educational program prioritises Literacy, Numeracy, learning to learn and ICT. As part of their drive to build strong, respectful partnerships within their community, the school has teamed up with two other local schools, Gowrie St Primary School and Wilmot Road Primary School, to establish a Professional Learning Community. The PLC provides a collaborative platform for the schools to access outside consultants and to plan and conduct professional learning that positively impacts teachers across each of the schools.
