SALAD three times a year improves presentation skills and confidence

It’s official that SALAD has helped improve the presentation skills and confidence of our students in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10!

To do this, they didn’t take a trip to the canteen for a healthy lunch, but SALAD actually stands for ‘Speaking And Listening Activity Day’ and is where all of the lessons for the day involved little to no writing to encourage students to speak and listen.

Normally, the classrooms around school are quiet and calm, but during our SALAD Days, the decibels are notched up as we encourage students to learn differently for the whole day. This involved group work and discussion, debating, presenting, teamwork activities and much more.

It did not matter what the subject was, everyone was able to interact and we could tell our students loved this way of learning on the day as it pushed them out of their comfort zones and helped improve their social skills.

Due to the success of this Communications intiative with Years 7 to 9, this academic year we introduced it across the whole school to include Year 10.

These engaging days take place three times during the academic year and the feedback from our students is that they love the different activities our staff have planned for them as is creates a real buzz around the teaching and learning.
