Venue: John the Baptist Centre
An invitation is extended to all Principals, Deputy Principals, Assistant Principals-Religious Identity and Mission and all Senior staff in Catholic Schools South Australia to attend an exciting presentation from Professor Paul Clarke who is visiting from the UK during Week 6 of this term.
One of the key strategies that was recommended from the CESA review in 2011was to build a culture of creativity, inquiry and dialogue in our Catholic Schools which promotes ecological conversion.
Paul's professional work has principally been in the field of educational improvement, sustainability programs and community cohesion. He is one of the lead developers of the influential Improving the Quality of Education for All (IQEA) program responsible for the management and strategic leadership of the organisation worldwide over the last 20 years.
This program has been integrated as a change methodology into many school systems. He has contributed to strategic development of school improvement, leadership and management programs on an international level.
Current research and development projects include being a founding partner in the publicly acclaimed ‘Incredible Edible Program’ within his local community. Paul’s work includes strategic direction and visioning, this program will soon host the first school and community based food hub in the UK, with a sustainable fish farm and hydroponics unit on site. The program was recently a national winner of the Breakthrough Project for the 21st century award with the Sustainable Development Commission (UK government).
Paul works with the Innovation Unit (UK Government affiliated) on the design and development of pedagogic reform focused on an eco literacy education program and there is considerable interest in this initiative in Australia as part of their curriculum reforms.
Paul is an accomplished practitioner/researcher with a strong commitment to school improvement programs across the world.
This is a unique opportunity to be led by an international presenter and to be involved in an exciting presentation for staff in our Catholic Schools.
