On-going professional learning, at Homebush Boys High School, is essential in ensuring that staff is provided with current information, developments and future educational direction. Complementing this, is the teaching and learning process, staff commitment to life-long learning and most importantly, the continual need for further skills development and improvement. As a school, we recognise, value and support the need for opportunities for all staff to be professional committed learners on an in-going manner. In order for this to become a reality, it is essential that opportunities, both in formal and informal professional development activities, be made available. This will ensure that staff, of all levels, develop, share knowledge and expertise, continue their engagement in professional development dialogue and be united in their work towards common teaching and learning goals. As Head Teacher Teaching & Learning, I have had the pleasure of working with many wonderful staff members in my career. Professional growth, in areas such as curriculum, welfare and teacher quality, has been ensured.
