The principal communicates effectively to develop and maintain positive partnerships with students, families and carers. The principal recognises appropriate modes of communication within a given context and uses effective strategies to promote and sustain improvement.
The purpose of this activity is to raise awareness about the impact our language has on audiences particularly school-based audiences, and remind people that effective communication contributes to positive school cultures.
This activity may be delivered across a number of sessions and by flexible means. Prior to this activity copy a few school newsletters and a few student reports (removing any names) onto a storage device, or as hard copies.
An additional activity could be to listen to a podcast called How language shapes thought on ABC Radio National
