Ravenswood School for Girls has been included in The Educator’s Innovative Schools 2020 report
Online PR News – 07-January-2021 – St Leonards, NSW – The North Shore’s Ravenswood School for Girls has been included in The Educator’s sixth annual Innovative Schools report, showcasing the fifty schools making the most profound and exciting impact in K-12 education.
“The Educator Innovative Schools report seeks to showcase those schools at the forefront of change and innovation,” says Editor Brett Henebery. “This year, the COVID-19 pandemic forced Australian schools to implement massive changes to their existing models as face-to-face classes shifted online. While this no doubt posed enormous challenges across all areas of teaching, parental engagement and student wellbeing, some schools saw some unique and exciting opportunities to innovative and improve the way they deliver teaching and learning, not just in 2020 but well beyond the pandemic.”
This year, Ravenswood has launched the Ravenswood Institute Professional Development Series, to provide ongoing training by teachers, for teachers. One fascinating project recently run by the institute was in the area of Mind Brain Education (MBE) Science, an emerging transdisciplinary field that stands at the nexus between research and practice for educators. To accelerate the integration of these principles into teacher practice, staff participated in a workshop on Transformative Teaching and Learning at St Andrew’s School Maryland Washington DC. A dedicated MBE translation team was subsequently created to experiment with MBE-informed teaching strategies at the various stages of student development
Ravenswood School also proactively addressed the challenges of COVID-19 this year. The school harnessed the expertise of Christine Morgan of the National Mental Health Commission, youth mental health organisation Headspace, and Lisa Messenger from Collective Hub, to support the mental health and wellbeing of teachers, students, and parents.
