Making Nests

A leaders professional learning community to support Staff Spiritual and Religious Formation  (Port Pirie Program)

This is a leadership development and professional learning community designed to support leaders in developing deeper understandings of how to connect Catholic Identity, Staff Spiritual and Religious Formation and school culture. In 2020 this will use Alice Camille’s book Listening to God’s Word as an inspiration for considering new expressions of staff formation that meet contemporary needs, enhance core priorities of the school and enable effective leadership. This book delivers a contemporary, authentic and engaging exploration of scripture, how we might engage with it as leaders and building capability for leading scripture based staff formation for your school context.

A key component is liaising with colleagues, sharing good practice and returning to school with the confidence, knowledge and resources to engage your staff community. Previous participants have reflected on the value of this collaboration and professional relationships for making Catholic Identity visible in their schools as well as developing their personal knowledge of theology and scripture. It is encouraged that you participate with colleagues from your school leadership team to maximise its impact on professional practice.
