Cup Eve Curriculum Day
Professional learning and preparations for 2017 were focused upon on our 31st October student free day.
Mastering differentiation for each student’s learning is essential. Rebecca Sobell lead us through understandings of dyslexia and students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
