If you were to visit St Joseph’s Catholic School, The Strand you would find teachers working together as a professional learning community to share collective knowledge to focus on student learning. Their collaborative learning space ‘The BeeHive’ is buzzing with teachers discussing high impact teaching strategies and student learning needs. Nyree Buchanan, who is part of the Learning and Teaching Team at Townsville Catholic Education, explains that part of the high impact teaching strategies the system is supporting is creating more independent learners. “Research has shown that students do better when they assume responsibility for their own learning, which is why all schools in the Diocese are implementing a model of Gradual Release of Responsibility”. Last year Townsville Catholic Education doubled the size of its system Learning and Teaching Team.
