Latest article from the Guardian Australia about poverty in Australia. This one is on education. It's a sobering read.
"[It's] a way to learn to love myself again, to find my voice, and to meet other like-minded women," says Sharna Brown who is taking part in the Women's Spirit Project in Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula.
It's a 16-week volunteer-run program designed to support vulnerable women with health, fitness and well-being activities.
Where do we come in?
Our researchers Ruth Jeanes and Lisahunter have been looking at the program's impact and ways it can be improved.
Armed with this, the organisers will aim to scale up the project, and support even more women.

👨🏫Placement Tip: Don’t Assume, ASK!👩🏫
One thing I noticed that I did with students was assume their knowledge instead of explicitly asking them.
Coming into a class that is not your own, you will be faced with new students and may not know what they have learnt.
Ask them or complete some activities that will allow you to learn about the class that you will be teaching!

Pre-Service Teacher Profile: Rachel Farrell
Meet Rachel, a first year Masters of Teaching student. Rachel has a background in Arts (History, Literature and Theatre Studies) and is completing her first professional placement experience as part of her degree.
Rachel is at a school in Melbourne’s South East and is amazed by her first placement experience. “The kids on placement have exceeded my initial expectations and I have been blown away by their hunger for knowledge, kindness and respect they have shown me.” We wish Rachel all the best for the rest of her degree and her teaching career.
It was a great night celebrating Monash Industry Team Initiative (MITI) Projects. MITI partners multidisciplinary student teams with industry to collaborate and design innovative ideas.

👨🏫Placement Tip: Getting Involved👩🏫
I have just returned from a five day camp to Phillip Island with Year 8 students. Placement is a great way to experience the daily roles that teachers play and I have learnt so much from this week alone.
It was amazing interacting with students in a different setting and be able to meet so many of them in a short amount of time.
If you get the opportunity to get involved with camps, clubs, excursions, sports or student-parent-teacher conferences, give it a go!
