From A Lighthouse School Principal
“Being a Classroom Profiling Lighthouse School has reinforced to all members of the school community the value we place on quality teaching and continuous improvement.
Over 25% of staff are trained in Classroom Profiling and 100% of teachers participate in regular sweeps. Evidence from classroom walk throughs shows the positive impact that Classroom Profiling is having on student engagement.”
– Ashley Roediger, Kingaroy SHS
