Staff Professional Learning and Support

Patterson River has a strong focus on Teaching & Learning. To support teachers, the majority of our staff meeting time is dedicated to instructional and assessment practices. In 2022, Patterson River will implement a more formalised approach to Professional Learning Communities (PLC). This will further enhance established practices as can be seen via our Staff Handbook 2021.
