UMNOS – University of Melbourne Network of Schools
The University of Melbourne has created a collaborative partnership for Australian schools to learn from each other and to work together with world class researchers on strategies to improve student learning. The Network of Schools offers a framework for achieving school’s goals and enhancing teachers’ capacity.
The purpose of the Network is to collectively impact on improving the learning outcomes and experiences of students, through a structured program that focuses on teaching and learning, and to inform, build and use the evidence base of the University of Melbourne.
St Pius X was recognised by the Melbourne University Graduate School of Education as a Professional Learning Community. As a result of this accolade SPX was invited to join UMNOS in 2017. One year into the program and the school has already made great gains in implementing change to better support and further improve student learning.
