Since 2014, Ashdale Primary is a Teacher Development School (TDS) for the Department of Education in the area of Humanities and Social Sciences (HaSS). This year, we continue our TDS HaSS role with the extension into Technologies. The Teacher Development Schools (TDSs) initiative acknowledges that teachers learn best from other teachers. Our Ashdale TDS provides practical teaching and learning support for classroom teachers, school leaders and support staff from K to Year 6 with the implementation of the Western Australian Curriculum.
TDS is a school-based system resource that provides opportunities for teachers to share expertise and classroom innovation across networks, alliances and professional learning communities. TDSs are selected for their exemplary knowledge of the Australian / Western Australian Curriculum and the capacity to provide support across Western Australia. All Department of Education staff can access resources and HaSS / Technologies information via the Ashdale Primary TDS Connect Community. Western Australian Curriculum Ashdale Primary School TDS
