Welcome back to term 1. We hope you all had an enjoyable break and have returned to school feeling fresh and ready to implement some new ideas. This year we hope to inspire you with some great new ideas in our professional learning sessions. Our first session kicks off on Thursday 21st February at 3.45pm at the Naturaliste Marine Discovery Centre.
In this session we’ll be covering the excursion activity Science of Sampling. In this activity, students learn about a range of sampling techniques used by Department of Fisheries research scientists to collect information about various fisheries in Western Australia.
Follow this activity up in the classroom with the Marine WATERs Lesson Plans: How Many Fish in the Sea? and Manage a Fishery. Learn how managing a jaffafish fishery relates to managing fisheries in the real world.
As always, light refreshments will be served at 3.45pm and hard copy resources will be provided on the day also.

If you’re finding the day or time prohibitive to attending, remember you can pull together a group of 10 or more teachers and we will come to your school and complete a professional learning session with you, and it’s still free!
