All parents are warmly invited to a number of Parent Workshops which will be held across Term 2.

We are pleased to offer five parent workshops in Term 2, and we hope you will consider joining us for these. To introduce you to these workshops and their themes, a short outline of each is as follows.

    o Thursday, 16 May, 2:30pm - 3:30pm

This session focuses on the role parents and library staff can play in encouraging children to read for pleasure. During this workshop, parents will learn about current trends in children's literature and the role the School Library plays in encouraging their children to read and enjoy books.

The session will take place on Thursday, 16 May, at 2:30 p.m. in the Library. Your children can join you once school finishes (at 3:10) to show you around their School Library.

    o Wednesday, 22 May, 6:15pm - 7:15pm

Our second workshop, Positive Behavioural Interventions and Supports (PBIS), aims to explain to parents the program being implemented at Claremont College across all grades, spaces, and activities, with all students and staff.

What is PBIS? PBIS is an evidence-based tiered framework for supporting students’ behavioural, academic, social, emotional, and mental health. Research has shown that when implemented with fidelity, PBIS improves social and emotional competence, academic success, and school climate. It also improves teacher health and wellbeing. It is a way to create positive, predictable, equitable and safe learning environments where everyone thrives. (Ref.,

This workshop will occur before the P&F Meeting (on 22 May), and parents are welcome to stay for this after the PBIS Workshop.

    o Thursday, 30 May, 9am - 10:15am

The English-in-Action workshop aims to explain the complex nature of teaching and learning English and how the new English Syllabus outcomes and content address this complexity

During this workshop, parents will gain valuable insight into how English is taught in all of our learning spaces following the implementation of the new English Syllabus in 2023-4. They will also learn about how we at Claremont cater to the needs of all students through explicit instruction and differentiation. Following this short workshop, we will invite parents to visit the learning spaces to see English-In-Action.

    o Tuesday, 11 June, 9am - 10:15am

Mathematics learning is very different now than it was just two years ago, let alone ten, twenty and thirty years ago. Teaching and learning in Mathematics today helps students make connections, as well as connect mathematical concepts with the world around them. Students learn to understand and appreciate how mathematics is a relevant part of their lives and how the use of mathematical knowledge is a way of communicating.

This workshop aims to help parents understand how Mathematics is taught at Claremont College, with a short workshop, followed by time to visit the learning spaces to see students engaging in mathematical activities.

    o Thursday, 9am - 10:15am, 20 June

“Co-teaching is two or more people sharing responsibility for teaching all of the students assigned to a classroom. It involves the distribution of responsibility among people for planning, instruction, and evaluation.” (Cushman, 2013)

Our fifth workshop of the term will provide parents with an overview of what collaborative teaching is and what it is not. Parents will learn how research-informed practices are implemented into the learning spaces at Claremont, and the professional learning our staff teams participate in to ensure students benefit from collaborating teaching. The challenges of collaborative teaching will also be discussed, and there will be ample time to walk and talk, while parents can see collaborative teaching in action.
