I was shadowing my 2 of my mentor teachers around with their classes doing events throughout the day
Today I Learnt:
It was observed that an all-girls school environment seems to be a ‘lighter’ environment.
Lack of teenage males.
Teacher student relationship is more friendly and light hearted.
Observed that this is a smaller school in comparison to other schools that I have been involved with. 500 students in comparison to 800 plus students.
They are in the same sort of context as to where I went to high school
Low socio-economic area.
Secondary Catholic Education.
My placement school seems to be a strongly community focused and parents seemed to be heavily involved in the school life.
The school focus on student coming to these days.
However, it is to be on their own terms.
This sort of school days and events foster making memories and relationships outside the classroom.
Identified issues surround mental health within the school.
Year 10 girls – struggle with anxiety.
They with these students don’t force/push participation.
I will have the opportunity to attend a ALL COHORT excursion with the Year 10. I will be attending the RAA Street Smart High Seminar Day.
I seek to look at risk management plan for this excursion, see what content this seminar involves and learn about how the teacher predict what is going to happen in terms of student reactions with what is occurring on these day.
