The 2020 school year is here. Well actually, we're now two weeks in. Each program day so far has seen us reconnecting with existing client schools. We're looking forward to also welcoming some new client schools as the term goes on.
To start the term it's been great to catch up with so many teachers, support and adminstration staff we've now known for years. As well as plenty of new students to support, we've also been lucky enough to work with again students who've now moved into Year 6 (some client schools offer our program experiences for Year 5 or 6 separately, while some have the whole of Stage 3 together). What an inspiring two weeks it's been. So many moments of participants bringing real leadership to life.
It's definitely never lost on us though:
That sharing a message we believe so strongly in is a real privilege.
School communities creating time and space for us to facilitate for their cohorts within the fullness of their school calendar is a real privilege.
Walking shoulder to shoulder with students and staff in their and our learning and leadership journeys is a real privilege.
The list could go on and on. The passion we share with our client schools for building leaders who inspire through the difference they make for and with others reminds us of this powerful quote below.
"There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about." – Margaret J. Wheatley
We can't wait to continue exploring the possibilities, discovering potential and acting authentically with our clients this year. Thanks for going on this adventure with us!
