Narangba/Burpengary Coalition – Literacy and Numeracy Workshop

Just a reminder about their next Parent Workshop. Please  promote this Workshop scheduled for

29 October at Narangba State School Hall, at 7:00pm.

“We have decided to offer the one workshop in the evening as this was by far the most popular option with our first workshop, ‘Powering Into Prep’.” 

“Please circulate and promote this event throughout all of your networks. We would love to get as many people as possible attend this event. Our main target audience is parents and carers with children from birth to school age and anyone that works with children in this age bracket. It would still be interesting and relevant for parents of children that are older and even school teaching staff and teacher aides. 

Our presenters on the evening will be Kylie Bradfield, an academic from QUT and Leah O’Neill, Head of Curriculum  at  Narangba State School and they both have a lot to offer.

 Kylie Bradfield is an academic at the Queensland University of Technology where she lectures in the Early Childhood and Primary Education programs. Kylie is passionate about literacy, language and literature as well as education in general. She also contributes as a consultant in the creation of school programs and in providing professional development to teachers, parents and child care providers. Kylie is currently undertaking a PhD which investigates teachers’ understandings of the teaching of children’s literature.

 Leah O’Neill is an educator with a background and speciality in Early Childhood. Leah has over 30 years experience in a wide range of settings including urban and rural schools; one teacher schools; hospital schools; preschools and multi-age classes. Leah was an early childhood advisor for the North West region for several years.  Leah has been Head of Curriculum for the last nine years and has also worked in Regional Office providing professional development for teachers as a First Steps in Mathematics Facilitator. Leah was co-author of ‘Back to Front Maths’, an innovative Maths resource that advocates a problem based approach to learning Mathematics and a Maths consultant visiting schools Australia wide to provide professional development to teachers and parent workshops.”
