Celebrating great teaching - Pene Finlayson

JULY 13, 2016 / Articles


Sir John Jones’ book, the Magic Weaving Business, has been one of the most significant new contributions to teaching and learning practice globally. It describes how powerful an impact teachers have on young people and how learning can make a profound difference in their lives.

Out of our immersion in Sir John's wisdom, we have established a Weaver of the Week award. Students nominate a teacher each week who they believe has woven some magic into their learning.

Congratulations to Pene Finlayson, Weaver of the Week winner at Canterbury Campus, whose students commented: "Made my week fun by thinking out of the box in writing" … and "She went out of her way by getting supplies for us to do Art".
