    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)

    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.

    Description

    CESA is now offering an in-depth, full year course that gives continuity and depth to the one-day Introduction to CLIL that was offered in 2021.

    Following the restrictions that had to be put in place regarding the provision of Professional learning to teachers and other school leaders in CESA schools in Term 1, 2022, we now have new dates for the CLIL (Content and Languages Integrated Learning) course to be offered for the rest of the year.

    Session 1: Thursday 9 June 2022 (CEO Conference Centre Room 7)
    Session 2: Thursday 
    16 June 2022 (CEO Boardroom)

    23 June 2022 (CEO Conference Centre Room 8)
    Session 4: Thursday 29 September 2022 (CEO Conference Centre Room 8)

    Project Summary

    • This project proposes an evidence-based professional learning course that provides participants with a firm grounding in the pedagogical principles and practice of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)
    • Participants will learn how to plan for, teach, assess and report in a CLIL program, considering the specific requirements and approach that integrates languages and other subject / areas of learning (Religious Education in the first instance)
    • This Professional Learning aims at deepening participants’ understanding of the relationship between language, concepts, cognition and communication and to develop teachers’ capacity to scaffold and support their students’ learning through a second language.

    The content for the 4 days of the course is as follows:

    Day 1: Planning CLIL learning: designing units of work and learning experiences

    Day 2: Pedagogies for CLIL learning

    Day 3: Assessing CLIL learning

    Day 4: Debriefing and review

    It is intended that by the end of the course, participants would have been provided with:

    • sound grounding in the pedagogical principles and practices of CLIL: learning design, pedagogies, assessment and reporting)
    • opportunities for school-based planning, teaching and assessing with a CLIL approach
    • an understanding of the school specific requirements relating to the implementation of an approach that integrates languages and areas of learning of interest to each school.

    The full year course, consisting of 4 days professional learning, will develop knowledge and understanding of CLIL and conceptualise how schools may implement a CLIL based program / units of work. It is an in-depth look at CLIL as a pedagogically sound and innovative way to complement the learning of languages and cultures, integrated with another subject / area of learning.

        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.

        Christian Meditation - A guide to implementing this prayer and wellbeing practice into your classroom

        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.

            Description:  

            Catholic Education South Australia invites schools to register their expression of interest to pilot the new CESA Limitless Possibilities Social Entrepreneurial Education Model within their school. We aim to pilot this model in one primary and one secondary school in each region.  

             

            CESA’s Education Advisors have collaborated with critical friends, A School for Tomorrow, to create a model of social entrepreneurial learning. This model has been informed by research at the global level by the OECD (Lackeus, 2015) and the local context of the Mitchell Institute (Anderson et al., 2017). Underpinned by Catholic Social Teaching and framed through the CESA Key Capabilities, the CESA Limitless Possibilities model equips students to notice, reflect on and respond to issues of injustice harnessing their empathy, creativity, innovation and problem-solving skills, thus preparing them to face the challenges of modern society and an uncertain future.  

             

            The Limitless Possibilities model and associated resources have been constructed to support teachers and students in Years 1 to 12 to design and facilitate social entrepreneurial learning in ways which are developmentally appropriate and aligned to the learning areas of the Australian Curriculum.  

             

            This initiative is aligned to the SACCS Learning and Teaching Commitment: Pursuing excellence in learning and teaching and student outcomes across all Catholic schools in South Australia. Specifically, this initiative has been designed to support Catholic Schools to meet the following objectives: 

            • 2.1 – Students are using the Key Capabilities Continua to routinely reflect on and articulate their growth as a person, learner and leader.​ 

            • 2.2 – Students have agency in their learning and can cite evidence of their growth as a person, learner and leader 

             

            We are seeking expressions of interests from teachers who are already engaged in or are willing to engage in designing and facilitating social entrepreneurial learning with their students.  

            Core FOCI and Priorities:  

            • Piloting CESA’s Limitless Entrepreneurial model 

            • Designing and facilitating social entrepreurial learning  

            • Providing feedback  

             

            AITSL National Professional Standards for Teachers:  

            (e.g. Standard 2: Know the content and how to teach it) 

            1. Know students and how they learn 

            2: Know the content and how to teach it 

            3. Plan for and implement effective teaching and learning 

            4. Support student participation  

            5. Assess, provide feedback and report on student learning

            2022/2023 Cognitive Coaching Facilitated by: Gavin Grift

            Please note that this registration is for the 2022 Cohort, the 2021 Cognitive Coaching Cohort will complete the final six days of the program in the first half of 2022 having engaged in Day 1 and 2 in 2021.  

            In this eight day course leaders of learning will practice and internalise effective strategies to develop skills to support, coach and mentor others in their schools, to support the ongoing improvement and evaluation of professional practice.

            Cognitive Coaching is a research-based model that will capitalise upon and enhances cognitive processes. The course is highly recommended for all schools who seek to build leadership density and leverage change through critical dialogue. This course aims to build capacity by:

            • Assisting improvement and evaluation of pedagogy in your school context
            • Providing you and your team with strategies and ways of thinking and working, with potential to improve learning outcomes for all.

            Testimonials from leaders who have participated in this course affirm and highly recommend it.

            The Cognitive Coaching course was without doubt one of the best professional learning opportunities of my career.  I would encourage leaders in our schools to consider this as an essential course for their professional development. The course was well structured with helpful strategies and real applications that could be put into practice.  It developed a mindset of coaching which sits in a companion model, that is sitting alongside and supporting others in their formation and daily work, rather than just performance management. The eight-day course was packed with practical and interactive activities, superbly led by our facilitator.”   (Philip Donato, Head of Senior School, Saint Ignatius College)

            Up to 40 places are available to school leaders for this unique learning opportunity.

                  Register

                  If you need to know more about the CESA Crossways RE curriculum then this workshop is for you!

                  This workshop consists of viewing and responding to three online modules. The three presentation modules will be uploaded in video format and accessible via MS Forms.  There will also be a MSTeams discussion with dates to be announced.  All modules must be completed and submitted by 16 December 2022.  All information regarding the modules will be sent to registrants after  17 October 2022.

                  This is designed for teachers new to teaching RE in 2022 or 2021, particularly those who either:

                  • didn't undertake the full UniSA Catholic Studies Strand in their B.Ed
                  • or those without completed Graduate Certificate in Catholic Education.

                  The workshop goes beyond the mandated CESA Teacher Induction Module to explore the privilege of teaching Religious Education in a Catholic school, and will highlight your responsibilities, resources and practical considerations. We will look at the development of particular skills and dispositions in RE and how 'Enduring Understandings' are acquired alongside capabilities in questioning, interpreting, making meaning and dialoguing in Religious Education.

                  This module will focus on:

                  • the purpose of the learning area of Religious Education
                  • 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
                  • and also concept-based teaching, the features of high-quality teaching and learning in RE and how Visible Thinking strategies and routines can be applied to the RE classroom.
