Preparation for the MADE Awards (Movie and Digital Excellence) continues with me chairing our first big meeting for this Year. It's such a wonderful opportunity to be able to offer NZ Year 0-8 students the chance to share their learning and to celebrate their talents. This years event promises to be even bigger and better than before!
I continue to work alongside our Senior Leadership Team to guide and support our teachers working in ILE (Innovative Learning Environments). This involves guiding and mentoring teachers through the 'Open to Learning Conversation' process and challenging them to 'Lead their own learning' alongside their students. Change can be an unsettling process and several teachers are currently 'in the pit' (James Nottingham).
