Fantastic, inspiring, and soooooooo useful! I can’t wait to start using the ideas to create new assessment tasks – and that is something that I usually dread…but not any more! Thank you so much. (Lise Hodgkinson, La Salle Academy Lithgow)

Very valuable information and ideas to share with colleagues at school and implement in the program. Thank you. (M. Gava, CBHS Lewisham)

The workshop was enjoyable and useful. It was well paced with the process of assessment being covered. Good examples were given as stimulus. (K.Cousins)

Leanne’s workshop was very thorough as well as informative. We learnt not only what the new syllabus entitles, but how to integrate it in new syllabus entitles, but how to integrate it in our program – Leanne is very knowledgeable and able to answer to all the question, you may have about the syllabus, programming, task based activities and the teaching and learning of languages. (Virginie.)

This has been the most helpful PD I’ve done to date. I can use every aspect of today’s work to better what I am teaching in the future. (Jessica Cacciotti, Patrician Brothers’ Blacktown)

This has been a well balanced day. Each session has provided either reassurance or inspiration! (C. Bennett, St Raphael’s Catholic School)

This workshop was excellent. We’ve learnt so much & feel much more confident about how to rewrite stage 4 Programs in light of the new syllabus. Leanne is fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone who teaches languages! (C.Dunston)
