I'm putting this on here, do everyone can see and appreciate. During this uncertain time and things really.going haywire; my saving grace has been you Kat. For turning your life.upside down in order for our kids to still get learning while being at home. I have said this to many people who have asked how my daughter's doing: I feel so lucky that she is in the school she is, because the support and guidance is top shelf and het stress level are minute to what it would've been were we in any other school. So, just a great big appreciative shout out to a great teacher and human being 💙💙💙💙

And tomorrow we start another exciting school year!

This year we've added a few new short courses to our program!


Welcome everyone to 2023!

We have loads of exciting projects planned for our students this year:
From bee keeping to beauty, manufacturing, Expressive Arts, yoga and learning all about horse anatomy......

So keep an eye out once lessons start to see what we're up to.....


Others have determined that the needs of disabled people are “special needs”. Disabled people know that access, accommodation, equity and justice are human needs

Feedback on my day

I know many of us gripe about government and how things just are not working.

So here is a good news story of my first hands on experience with top level government:

Spent my morning in the Parliamentary Portfolio comittee on Basic Education where our delegation spoke about the various models of alternative and hybrid education that we use.

This is part of discussion around a new Basic Education Legislation Amendment Bill that's been on the table recently and which could use a major revamp.

It was an exciting and intense morning with some very positive responses.

What made the whole process really helpful was the banter between comittee members from a really diverse range of political groups. The whole vibe was one of comraderie and a genuine sense that this is a team working to solve a very complex set of issues.

Everyone was there to listen, learn and discuss. The questions posed to each delegation were by no means easy. But they were thorough and you could see all our points were being taken seriously.

We've given food for thought and felt heard.

Just had confirmation from ASDAN .

They were impressed with my latest submission of portfolios.

This means that, over this year alone, my students have earned the following between them:

3 International Award Gold
1 International Award Silver
1 International Award Bronze
5 Animal Care short course
4 Gardening short course
5 Living Independently short course
3 Environmental short course
4 Science Short Course
7 Key Steps
3 Lifeskills Challenges
5 Towards Independence
1 New Horizons Gold

That's 42 certificates in total! Not bad for my group of 15 amazing students!


Didn't like any of the fidget rules or expectations I found online so I made my own 🤷🏼‍♀️ Some of my least favorite and most perplexing rules that I saw while searching, and how I would replace them:

"Look at the teacher, not at the fidget."--> Look wherever you need to remain engaged in the lesson.

"Using a fidget is a privledge." -->Using tools to support your learning is a right.

"Fidgets should not make noise." -->Fidgets should be quiet enough that they do not prevent others from learning.

"Before you use a fidget, ask yourself if you *really* need it." -->All students can decide what tools are helpful for them through exploration and self-reflection.

"Do not let others notice the fidget."-->If your peers ask about your fidget, remind them that they can get one from the classroom tools table, too!

What would you add to create respectful, affirming expectations around the use of fidgets?

Edit/update: Wow, did not expect this to get so much attention. I didn't love the "rules" I came up with, so I am SO grateful for all the amazing people providing feedback. While I think guidelines are important for safety and access to learning, I also in no way want to prevent or limit students' attempts at regulating. Also for clarity on two things:
1. Students should always have free access to breaks. If a fidget isn't cutting it and/or isn't being used safely, it's possible that a break is needed.
2. This was designed for a single student who needed more explicit rules. I don't recommend taking this and using it for all students without collaborating and problem-solving with them around how they will use this tool.

[ID: A piece of paper sits on a desk surrounded by a variety of fidgets. The paper is labeled "Fidget Rules" and lists the following rules with visual supports: "I can choose one fidget to use at a time," "The fidget stays in my hands, on my desk, in my lap, or on the floor beside me," "My ears are still listening while using a fidget," "I follow teacher directions amd classroom expectations while using a fidget," "If I can't complete and assignment while using a fidget, I will put it down so I can work."]


I still have a few spaces open for next year for both in person and distance learners.

Programs are tailored to suit individual students. The number of courses per student will vary according to their needs.

There are courses suitable for a wide range of abilities, with assessment strategies geared to showing what students CAN do.

As part of our Animal Care short course, we're learning about the laws around keeping farm animals.
Today we visited an urban chicken coop and learned about the laws around keeping chickens in a residential area.
We were treated to some freshly laid eggs too!


I know I assess differently to other teachers. I don't give marks or grades. I give comments. Even on reports new parents will see no marks, percentages or grades.

Below is why:

This student did grasp the concept. Albeit with some help.

But all this student will see is 4/8 in red. Nothing else.

As far as he's concerned, this wasn't good enough.

Assessment like this leaves kids feeling inadequate and demotivated.

With so many of my students having already been battered by the system, I cannot do more harm.

So I don't give marks.

I focus on what they do achieve and guide where support is needed.

Trying to boost them.

And that is why we have a huge pile of certificates to hand out at the end of the year. And EVERY child who is currently with me will get something. Not as a token. But because they have earned it.
Some of the older kids will have completed 5, 6 or even 7 courses this year. Others will achieve one. But each student is working incredibly hard and deserves recognition for this.


So this pile is just what my students have achieved do far this year!
There are still many more certificates that will be issued later on too!
