Bedrock March 2024

Welcome to the first edition of Bedrock for 2024.  

Hear from an incredible trio of women who run an early childhood education program for displaced children living in refugee camps in Lebanon. 

We talk to two Educational Leaders about the joys and challenges of the role, which varies widely throughout NSW.

Meet the wonderful Rachael Phillips at Birrelee Multifunctional Aboriginal Children’s Service, who won the 2023 HESTA award for Individual Leadership. She advances culturally appropriate teaching and thinking every day. 

This edition is packed with a variety of topics: including healthy body image, encouraging inclusion and trauma-informed practice. 

We encourage you to share this email with colleagues and invite them to Join the IEU. We are always stronger together.
