Lessons in Education for Newcastle and the Hunter Valley
Since the turn of this century there has been lots of discussion about just how we should look at equipping children and young adults with the skills, knowledge and value framework for a rapidly changing world in which concepts like the nature of work itself and traditional pathways to careers and vocations are being short-circuited by a number of influences. Indeed, with almost twenty years of the 21st Century already gone, there is a range of opinion about why we have schools and the sorts of places they should be.
Come along to Souths on 11 July to hear from a panel of great practitioners in education as we further the discussion around schools and education.
Our panel of presenters will provide some keen insights into current educational thinking.
The panel includes:
Professor John Fischetti – Professor of Education, University of Newcastle
Tracey Breese – Principal, Kurri Kurri high School
Jo Grey – Principal, Hunter School of the Performing Arts
Paul Tracey – Former Principal, Wallsend Campus, Callaghan College
Acting as our facilitator on the night will be Education student Kiera Campbell.
