Nutrition Education in Schools

4.30pm to 5.30pm by Foodbank WA’s Public Health Nutritionist, Catherine Dumont.

Catherine has been working as a public health nutritionist and clinical dietitian for over 20 years. She joined Foodbank in 2017 in Geraldton, where she delivered the programs 'Food Sensations® for Adults', 'Food Sensations® for Children', and has delivered many educational workshops in schools. As a mother of two girls, Catherine has been involved in P&C and her daughter's school canteen where she has helped many teachers with nutrition curriculum. She is now embracing her recent move to the city, where she is developing 'Learn. Cook. Share', a new Foodbank nutrition education model. She strongly believes in nutrition education, through fun, enjoyable and cooking activities. She is hoping to give you a taste of what nutrition education can look like in her 1 hour workshop.

Reading Picture Books: A Guide to Teaching Visual and Multimodal Texts Using Picture Books.

5.30pm to 6.30pm Workshop Linking to Curriculum by The Literature Centre's Education Officer, Anna Hardy.

Anna followed her love of stories to study English Literature and Language at Leeds University. After which, she completed a qualification in Adult Education and taught unemployed adults. This led to a love of teaching and a desire to combat literacy issues and the associated disempowerment. She returned to university for a Postgraduate Certificate in Secondary Education and has spent almost 15 years teaching English in schools, also holding the roles of Head of English and Dean of Curriculum, where she developed a passion for equity in Aboriginal Education, promoting marginalized voices and improving English teaching. She continues to study creative writing and to write.
