A big congratulations is in order for Headmaster Greg Wain, for being selected by The Educator magazine as “one of the top 40 individuals leading the way in the field”.
This prestigious list commends those viewed as pioneers in the education industry for their innovative programs. Mr Wain is being recognised for a number of his innovative programs, which he has introduced throughout his past 12 years as Headmaster, including his programs in positive psychology, habits of mind and heart, wellbeing, leadership and thinking skills.
Also noted and praised is his exceptional program called “Learning to Lead” for students in years 7 to 9. The program develops academic abilities, leadership skills of the 21st century and intelligent tendencies. The program includes Habits of Mind, thinking skills, positive psychology courses and a Chinese living, language and culture program.
Another program Mr Wain is being commended for is his teacher development program. Being a boy’s only school, it is imperative that our teachers are equipped with the knowledge of how to best teach boys and that they continue to learn the best ways to teach throughout their career as new strategies emerge. Headmaster Wain has recognised the importance of this and so has made it a priority to implement a program that invests in developing teachers, ensuring that TSS progresses as an education organisation where our staff are continually learning, seeking feedback and reflecting on their practice. When our teachers know and practice the best teaching strategies, it gives our students the greatest opportunity to succeed and works to inspire in them a love of learning.
Not only is Mr Wain equipping teachers with the knowledge they need to best educate their students, he is also helping new parents to better understand their children’s thought and learning processes through his Boy’s Education Information Sessions and Brain Talks.
For these presentations Mr Wain finds, interprets, evaluates and reports on the latest research and methodologies on how boys learn to give parents simple techniques to more successfully understand and communicate with their children.
