Speakers

Jodie Higgins, Kerri Gould and Paul Johnson

Galilee Catholic School

The session will be presented by three educators who have been exploring how young children perceive and use space to create meaning.

Jodie Higgins is the current principal of Galilee Catholic School and is passionate about leading educators to provide environments and opportunities that engage and inspire children. Paul Johnson is Galilee’s eco-literacy teacher and a part-time PhD candidate whose research focuses on relations between children’s learning and physical environments. Kerri Gould is a founding teacher at Galilee and an early years educator who animates spaces and places where children think, wonder and learn. Together these three educators will discuss Galilee Catholic Learning Community’s vision of place as a key source of educational provocation and insight.
