Two TRIO presenters were lucky enough to visit Bungendore PS for the first day of 2017 school term. We were thrilled that teachers arrived happily for a whole day on the effective teaching of grammar! This might not sound like an easy start to the year but teachers volunteered to be parts of a sentence, or adjectives in a cline and their enthusiasm saw the day pass quickly. We love to spend time with teachers and be a part of their learning journey and the teachers at Bungendore PS were an enthusiastic audience. I am sure that their grammar lessons this year will be very lively. A final word to the school canteen lady who organised lunch and morning tea. The TRIO award for best catering goes to her. You can’t beat home cooked scones with jam and cream for recess unless it is chicken satay pie for lunch. Thank you to Bungendore PS for their hospitality and involvement in our SDD course.
