In Partnership With

Last Friday we woke up to the most beautiful blue skies. We set up for our Camp Adventure Day experience at the most beautiful sea side park location. And we welcomed the most beautiful Year 3 and 4 students into an action packed program that explored the role of resilience in our journeys of potential. What a great day it was! The photo above is of some of the participants from the red group challenging themselves and having so much fun on the rock climbing wall. “Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together.” – James Cash Penney As the day progressed I started thinking about how being in partnership with multiple individuals and groups made the day even more

Adding the Cherry on Top

I love lending out books. Whether it’s a book that has really moved me and just has to be shared with a family member or friend, or I receive a request from someone for a particular title or to surprise them with a variety of selections, there’s always books in motion. One that has been a constant boomerang since first reading it is Wonder by R.J. Palacio. I loved it, and of course then wanted to share it with as many people as possible (it has been a go to present over the past couple of years). When I got a series of texts from a friend last week I was again reminded of some really important themes that the book explores. “Always try to be a little kinder than is necessary.” – J M Barrie T

Battery Life

As I pushed on the screen, and nothing happened, I giggled. It’s amazing how something that used to feel so familiar was now bringing on such a disjointed response. A simple text message was the task at hand. But because it was on a phone that was not mine I was taken back to life before smartphones. “Nothing is stronger than habit.” – Ovid This other phone now had me curious. Phones I used to have came flashing back into my mind. I was also making connections to how each of my past handsets had to be navigated to complete various tasks. This line of thinking reminded me of a big difference I was now observing. This other phone, once charged, had battery life for up to a week. This was somet

L.E.A.D. with me

What would you say is a key to success when navigating a challenge as a group? There’d be many that would come to mind I assuming, especially when you consider all the different situations, complexities, who’s involved and circumstances that could be thrown in to spice up the types of problem solving required. Context definitely matters. But… “Good leaders make people feel that they’re at the very heart of things, not at the periphery.” – Warren Bennis A few weeks ago, when posed with a similar question, a Year 6 student responded in this way: “A key to success is giving space for others to lead”. It was at the beginning of the day and we’d just completed our first small groups challenge (ap

A Celebration Of...

As we near the end of first term I know there are a lot of students and teachers who are looking forward to a refreshing holiday break. What a term it’s been! It’s been a wet one (thinking of all those students and teachers who’ve been stuck inside a lot). It’s been a busy one (so many fantastic school communities to support). It’s been an interesting one (plenty of incredible individual and collective examples of exploring the possibilities, discovering potential and acting authentically). There’s always so much to celebrate! “Diversity is the one true thing we all have in common. Celebrate it everyday.” – Anonymous As I reflect back on the past ten weeks I am reminded of feedback I receive
