My Year 11 group participated in an international project this term:
100 People: A World Portrait (http://100people.org/)
According to the 100 People Project, "this project aims to capture in film, photography, music and text 100 individuals who represent the global population, proportionate to annual global surveys and statistics. This world portrait will be used to make an introduction between the peoples of the earth and to facilitate an understanding of the diversity and the commonalities among us."
This is one contribution by one of the members of my Year 11 class. Thank you Tiago, this is amazing!

- be committed to teaching as a vocation;
- be committed to the development and learning of each child;
- work in a range of partnerships to support the learning and development of each young person;
- have a passion for learning and deep understanding of and enthusiasm for their subject;
- have discernment to be able to put relevant theory into practice;
- share ideas and network with colleagues; and
- be keen to participate in their own personal learning and development.
