Next year I take a new step in my educational journey as a Deputy Principal at Wellington East Girls’ College (WEGC). Throughout 2020 I have been fortunate to work closely with this school as an Across School Lead Teacher within the Motu Kairangi Kāhui Ako. Today’s guest is a Within School Lead Teacher from WEGC who teaches Biology. Georgette Lampitt has been teaching for about 12 years and was trained in the UK. She has been part of teaching in a hub team at WEGC for about 5 years now.
Throughout this episode George and I attempt to unpack a number of innovate approaches to learning they have within the school such as:
- 90 minute lessons and how that impacts learning
- Ako time as an approach to pastoral care
- Hubbing and integrated learning
- Challenges and opportunities working within a modern learning environment
WEGC are doing some amazing things and no doubt this episode will give you a variety of ideas you might be able to pull apart and see how you might be able to leverage them in your school.
