    Retreat at Home

    (For Principals and Deputy Principals Only)


    Retreatants have the option of taking 3 days across the span of 1 to 6 weeks to step away from their professional role to be on retreat and engage in a ‘retreat at home’ experience facilitated by an accredited and approved spiritual director via a one-to-one 45 minute to 1 hour online session on each of the 3 days.  

    This form of retreat requires a high degree of self-discipline, an ability to switch off from work matters, and for retreatants to have a space to be by themselves (either at home or in a space by themselves, walking on the beach or in the bush, going for a drive or any other suitable, solitary space).  There must be a preparedness to enter into a quiet contemplation where the retreatant can be mindful of and consider the input from their spiritual director sessions.

    Retreatants will be paired with a spiritual director and can negotiate dates and times for the online sessions.  Ideally, retreatants and spiritual directors will arrange to meet online on each of the mornings of the 3 days for about 1 hour and then for the rest of the day, retreatants consider whatever has come out of the conversation, contemplate and pray on it (and stay away from emails, phone and other work distractions!). 

    Retreatants may wish to nominate and propose a particular focus, theme or topic to their spiritual director, or may simply want to focus on their relationship with God, the ways in which they pray, how they see themself as a Catholic leader and how they interact with others and the world because of their context.  This experience could be a gentle, calm way of considering what other dimensions or growth points the retreatant would like to focus on to improve their spiritual health and wellbeing.

    The 3 days of ‘retreat at home’ ideally should not span more than 6 weeks in total so there is a flow.

    Commitment to all three days is essential

    Cost
    $300.00 per participant (an invoice will be sent to your school from the CEO)

    Luke's Gospel in a Nutshell

    Of the four gospels, for many people Luke’s is the most loved. This year the gospel readings at Mass focus on Luke’s account of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. This course will provide an opportunity to engage with Luke’s account, to travel with Jesus from his birth to his final journey to Jerusalem and to ponder the significance of this gospel for ourselves and for our students.

    The course will briefly address the background to Luke’s gospel, articulate some of Luke’s concerns and major themes – and will break open a range of Lukan texts using the ‘three worlds’ strategy.

     Kate Ordon
    Unpacking Parables Jesus was a master story-teller – and parables form the bulk of his teaching ministry. They are a distinctive literary genre - one feature being their ability to unsettle us - to challenge us to new ways of thinking and acting. This course will focus on a range of Jesus’ parables which address different concerns e.g. the nature of the Kingdom, justice, mercy and the ‘lost’.  The ‘three worlds’ strategy will be used to unpack the stories – i.e. the ‘world of the text’ and the ‘world behind the text’.  In particular, participants will be encouraged to engage with the ‘world in front of the text’ in order to make links with the hopes and dreams of students today. Kate Ordon 
    ​​​​​​​Mighty Miracles

    Each of the four gospels portray Jesus as mighty in word and deed. Sometimes his mighty deeds are called ‘deeds of wonder’, ‘deeds of power’ or ‘signs’. They are extraordinary events bearing religious significance - and invite us to faith.

    This course will examine a range of miracles – their distinctive literary form and what they teach. It will also address the background of the stories - what was happening in the time of Jesus and what was happening in the gospel writers’ communities many years later. Where appropriate the ‘three worlds’ strategy will be used to unpack the texts.

     Kate Ordon
    Dialogue is more than just a chat

    Participants will explore Catholic dialogue pedagogy and the opportunities in the classroom.  This will be grounded by relevant system documents, the Wisdom Strand of the Crossways curriculum, and a reading by Pope Francis. This mini module will look at pedagogical approaches that consider authentic dialogue, the richness of diversity, creating a culture of trust and how we navigate this to ensure the dignity of all.

     Christina Jonas
    A Deeper Dive into the Wisdom Strand

    In this mini module you will have the opportunity to engage with the Wisdom Strand and understand its implications for curriculum design and pedagogy while exploring the cultivation of dispositions and how to create a climate for enhancing engagement, reflective practice and self-exploration.

    This will focus on going deeper in understanding the 'why' , the 'what' and the 'how' of the 'Wisdom' strand.  A deeper dive into the Wisdom Strand will also explore the relationship between the CESA Key Capabilities and the Wisdom strand.

     Julian Kluge

    Christian Meditation

    In this mini module, you will be given an introduction to the “3 S” approach to Christina Meditation – Silence, Stillness & Simplicity.

    We will explore what preparations can set teachers & students up for success in implementing this prayer form as a regular practice in the school day/week.

    We will also discuss FAQ’s and trouble-shooting hints sourced from 50 schools that engaged with the CESA Christian Meditation Inquiry which ran from 2015 - 2018.

    • the structure and features of CESA's redesigned Crossways RE curriculum
    • contemporary pedagogies for RE
    • learning design principles for RE
    • the educational philosophy and theology which has shaped the redesign of Crossways

    Making Nests:

    A leaders professional learning community to support Staff Spiritual and Religious Formation (Adelaide 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 2022 this will use Let us Dream: The Path to a Better Future by Pope Francis 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 the role that our faith plays in imagining a future of hope.

    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.

    Goal

    To meet the Formation Goal of the Catholic Identity and Mission Pillar that students, staff and leaders are formed so they can participate with faith, hope and love in the mission of God in their context.

    Methodology

    Engage with professional learning, collaborative planning and ongoing strategy development that highlights effective Religious and Spiritual Formation of staff that links to school vision and mission and facilitates a culture of making visible personal and religious faith formation.

      Network Description

      The Engage with Asia Network responds to the need to increase knowledge and awareness Asia in our schools. Through inter-school partnerships, students, teachers and schools in general will interact with each other through the creation of curriculum resources. Students from both schools prepare and share these resources online, via contemporary and appropriate platforms that will enhance communication and intercultural understanding between CESA schools and schools in Asia.

      Currently, 14 inter-school partnerships have been formed between CESA schools and schools in China, Indonesia and Japan. Partnerships with schools in other countries would be welcome to consider and encouraged to be developed as part of schools’ involvement in this Engage with Asia Network.

      In 2022, the Engage with Asia Network will:

      • develop students, teachers and other school leaders’ intercultural understanding capability (ACARA GC)
      • support students in developing intercultural and global competency (CESA KC)
      • increase respectful relationships between students/teachers/school leaders  in different geographical settings
      • promote ethical and responsible usage of ICTs (ACARA GC)
      • develop models of effective and sustainable school partnerships with contemporary co-constructed curriculum, student agency to be shared sector wide (CESA CIF)
      • address the Blueprint Paper, in that there is an understanding that all children are capable of successfully learning languages and cultures
      • address the CESA Strategy by encouraging schools to express their beliefs by adopting an inter-faith approach
      • address the Living Learning Leading Framework by encouraging the development of thriving global citizens, capable and successful multilingual learners and leaders in intercultural communication for the world God desires
      • promote the usage of ICTs to facilitate the formation of this Network that includes rural, isolated schools.
      • provide in-situ PL to school staff to strengthen a student-centred culture.

      What will actually happen as part of being a member of the Engage with Asia Network 2022:

      • participating schools will develop an inter-school partnership and a partnership plan based on the curriculum to be taught and agreed by both sites in CESA and in Asia
      • the partnership plan is developed by teachers in both countries
      • an appropriate e-platform is agreed to facilitate student to student, teacher to teacher, class to class and principal to principal communication
      • students will co-construct curriculum (units of work and related materials / resources) in partnership with their partners in Asia
      • student agency and student leadership will be central to this work as they develop materials to be discussed and shared online by students, thus demonstrating their agency and leadership
      • learners will decide on the structure of the online connections and will lead the sessions from the beginning to the end of each one (1 or 2 per term).

      Collaborative interactions take place in English, Chinese, Japanese or Indonesian and also in Pinyin - romanised Mandarin and in character), mixing with the cultural aspects of the learning taking place.
