The teachers and students are also part of a study through Curtin University in understanding the educational and physiological impact of a contemporary space.
The class was set as a traditional arrangement in Term 1. The teachers and students were then fitted with a movement measuring device over a week that measured their level of movement. Classroom observation also took place during that week.
A follow up observation and study will be conducted in Term 2 to measure and compare the outcomes.
Both Year 2 teachers have made informed and proactive decisions that have enabled a smooth and harmonious transition. They have both adjusted to the environment very quickly. Their expertise and professionalism in educating our students has definitely assisted in this.
