HALLS Head Primary School teachers got a rare insight into the inner workings of Parliament, after an invite to dine at Parliament House with Dawesville MLA Zak Kirkup.

It was a timely invite for teachers Ailsa Hacket, Donna McIntosh, Leigh Perry and Sian Dhu, with the school embarking on a new Journey to Excellence in Teaching (JET) program.

“Collectively we are committed to continuous improvement,” JET facilitator Donna McIntosh said.

“Dinner at Parliament House provided a valuable opportunity to share our plans with Zak Kirkup, who responded very positively about our exciting initiative.”

Implementing and embedding an integrated whole-school approach to health and wellbeing will be a highlight of the JET program.

It promotes Halls Head Primary as a Positive School, while bringing together wellbeing science and practical strategies to support the wellbeing of students, staff and the wider school community.
