Bringing it all together: Teacher Professional Development Program

The 3-hour PD sessions aim to bring together all the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games Education Program resources and activities. These have been developed by the State Government of Victoria to assist teachers and schools to plan exciting programs for their students in the lead up to the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games. The PD is suitable for teachers of all year levels (P-12) and subject areas.

The Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games Education Program resources consists of:

The Classroom Resources, which address a range of themes including:
  • Commonwealth of Nations
    - Environmentally sustainable behaviours
    - Participation in physical activity and sport
    - Indigenous culture
    - Community links and activities
    - Melbourne as a host city (including hosting a major event)
    - Ethics in Sport
    - Starting Blocks - An Introduction to the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games

  • Post-Compulsory Resources for VCE/VET in Schools/VCAL
  • Let the Games Begin! Middle Years Resources
  • United Through the Games - Integrated Units
  • CommPASS

    Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to the PD sessions, many teachers have missed out on the opportunity to attend. As a result, those teachers can now attend a virtual PD session and have access to all the PD resources by clicking on the links below.
