 reflectively adapt their practice through quality, targeted professional learning and use of student assessment data to inform teaching.

Strategic Direction 2: Refined teacher practice and collaboration
  Purpose
  The school situational analysis identified the need for greater teacher collaboration and sharing. Project based Learning was a focus of the 2018-2020 school plan but was
  not deeply embedded in practice. Through Curiosity and Powerful Learning (CPL) all staff will develop a practical understanding of the structures to improve teaching
  practice by working collaboratively within and across faculties. CPL will provide a base from which Project Based Learning (PBL) can further develop. Enquiry based
  learning will also be used to positively impact on student engagement.
