St Joseph Campus Berry St Training

Thursday, February 08, 2024

Prior to students arriving back for the 2024 school year, the teachers at St Joseph Campus participated in Day 1 of the Berry St Education Model Training. Berry St Education Model is a whole school approach to help students meet their own learning needs by:

  • understanding the benefits of trauma-informed teaching on child development and ability to learn
  • creating a supportive and trauma-informed positive education classroom
  • bolstering student-teacher relationships
  • applying positive relational classroom behaviour management strategies
  • instilling strengths-based practices across the school.

We learnt strategies to keep students engaged and how to support them to have an improved capacity for school achievement. The particular focus for the day was how to help students to regulate their stress response, de-escalate in school and classroom contexts, and provide strategies for increased focus.

We look forward to learning more during Day 2 of the training in July.
