Barker Institute Journal
This Learning in Practice Journal is the second compilation of different moments in time across the breadth of Barker during 2018. Our focus on quality teaching, motivation and engagement, breadth of learning opportunities, research and collaboration are some of the key aspects of the journey for all of our students accompanied by their teachers.
The stories and reports in this Journal are all situated within the context of the school setting. They have been published with two key purposes in mind. Firstly, to share these important stories with the broader learning community and to archive experiences that are of interest and deserve acknowledgement. Secondly, the journal allows different vignettes of the Barker fabric, whether co-curricular, teaching and learning, pastoral or research, to be remembered now and into the future.
