Whole School News: Education Assistant Professional Learning

Education Assistants (EAs) play an important role in supporting learning programs and students at the Fremantle LDC.  To ensure our EAs are up to date with the latest research and trends in education a targeted EA professional learning series is implemented each year.  This year our EA professional learning series has covered the following topics:

  • Speech and Language
  • Fundamentals of Literacy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Health and Safety in the work place
  • Character strengths (values / virtues)

The professional learning sessions also provide our EAs who work across our three sites, with a wonderful opportunity to share ideas, information and strategies with each other.

At our session last week we also managed to sneak in a little birthday celebration for Mr Lauritsen who works in a Pre-Primary class at our Beeliar site.
