Leonie Mitchell (ECTA Secretary) and Kim Walters (ECTA President) with Minister of Education John-Paul Langbroek. Extremely pleasing to hear from Dr Jim Watterston (Director General DETE) and Gabrielle Sinclair (Deputy DG ECEC) that play is an essential pedagogical practice in ECE for children 0-8.
Kim and Leonie spoke to the Director General and Deputy Director General at the event about the pressures on students and the necessity for play to be the main context for learning in Prep.
