Professional Development

Teachers at Chrysalis are continually developing their teaching skills and perspectives. Teaching staff engage in eight professional development and planning days each year as a team. These occur during holiday time prior to the beginning of each term and at the end of the last term. Through these days we aim to foster a sense of a learning community supporting individual development and group cohesion. In addition to this, staff participate in Steiner and other related courses as required, according to individual and school needs.

Report Writing Days

To support the teachers in having sufficient time to complete fulsome written reports on each child, a new initiative for 2019 has been introduced. One pupil free day in each semester will assist them to complete this task.
