    Workshop Information

    Through Project-Based and STEM Learning, students will build a weather station to record and analyse the climate conditions of their local community, sharing their journey with other participating CESA schools. The project will provide increased teacher capacity and authentic learning experiences through:

    • developing digital technologies skills in coding a microcontroller to record sensory data
    • gaining perspectives in climate science by collecting, analysing and publishing results
    • sharing collected data with other participating schools across the CESA network on an online platform, to gain a broader perspective of climate trends.

    After a successful 2019 pilot program, the CESA Weather Station Challenge has been designed as either an upper primary school or middle school project, using either Micro:Bit or Arduino technology. Schools can tailor the Challenge’s format to meet their schools needs and timelines.

    This project will receive in-school support from a CESA Learning Technologies consultant.

    Quality Learning and Leading in the Middle Years

    Last day to register: Friday 14 February 2020

    NETWORK FOCUS

    At the heart of our Living Learning Leading Framework is the inherent belief that all learners are competent, capable leaders who have the agency to co construct learning with others and be agents of change. Building on the learning of the 2017-2019 Middle Years Network, the Quality Learning and Leading in the Middle Years Network (QLLMY) seeks to increase learner agency and to support students, educators and leaders to work and learn together in new ways, honouring identity and diversity. This year we aim to build a broader repertoire of strategies for increasing student engagement and agency in their learning. We also aim to provide the prompts to embed changes in curriculum design, pedagogy, assessment and reporting which promote student agency and co-construction. We will support educators to be more confident to design learning in a co-constructed way and to be authors of a common language for articulating learning and growth.

    2020 Using Mentor Texts to Teach Language and Literacy
    Dr Misty Adoniou

    Last day to register: Friday 07 February 2020   
     

    FOCUS:
    The CESA EAL program has engaged Dr Misty Adoniou, associate professor at University of Canberra, to facilitate a series of four workshops focusing on using mentor texts to develop vocabulary, oral language reading and writing.  These workshops will be suitable for all teachers of EAL learners in the Early Years through to Secondary.

    Dr Adoniou is an Associate Professor in Language, Literacy and TESOL at the University of Canberra. She was lead writer for the national English as an Additional Language Teachers Resource which accompanies the Australian Curriculum, and a co-writer of the Literacy General Capability. She researches and writes in the fields of literacy, teacher professional knowledge and standards, and is a sought after speaker, nationally and internationally. She has received numerous teaching awards, including an OLT National Citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning and the 2014 Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Teaching Excellence. She works closely with schools and education systems around the country leading professional learning in spelling, grammar and writing. These workshops are an excellent opportunity for educators in CESA schools.

    Each workshop will build on learning and skills from the previous workshop.  Participants will be expected to attend all four workshops and commit to trialling and reflecting on new strategies introduced in the workshops.

    Making Nests (Port Pirie Program)

    This is a leadership development and professional collaborative program to develop deeper understandings of how to connect Catholic Identity, Staff Spiritual and Religious Formation and school culture. In 2019 this will use Cynthia Bourgeault’s book The Wisdom Way of Knowing: Reclaiming An Ancient Tradition to Awaken the Heart 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 provides a contemporary application of the wisdom traditions in developing capability to plan for and lead Spiritual and Religious Formation as well as deepening an engagement with professional learning for engagement with the Wisdom strand in the redeveloped Crossways   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.

    Invitation to join the program online during 2020

    In light of the Covid19 related restrictions we are offering a warm invitation for participants who attended Day 1 of Making Nests on March 17 AND ANY NEW PARTICIPANTS to join us for our ‘alternative’ plan for the Day 2 component of Making Nests this year. Please note that attendance for the ‘Day 2’ offering does NOT presuppose attendance on Day 1.

    We will meet using Microsoft Teams to reflect on Chapters 3 and 4 of our book “The Wisdom Way of Knowing” by Cynthia Bourgeault. For new members, the reading material will be sent to your school asap.

    Chapters 3 and 4 of the text will support us to reflect together on themes such as:

    • The importance of our bodies as expressions of our spiritual selves, our spiritual questions and the ‘real knowledge’ that lies deep within us.
    • Models of self-understanding and strategies for increasing our “receptivity to higher meaning”.
    • How we can be led to reduce being to thinking
    • How we can act out of the power of emotional agendas.
    • What might a ‘spirituality of the heart’ entail?
    • The wisdom that emerges from engagement with the ‘big’ story of creation
    • How language can help and hinder our attempts to ‘name’ God
    • What might be the vision of “the world God desires” at the heart of CESA’s Live Learn Lead Framework?

    Come to the Water - an online opportunity for you own wellbeing!

    Whilst we will be unable to meet this year face to face in the beautiful surrounds of the Monastery, the SSRF team would still like to offer an opportunity for school leaders (Principals, Deputy Principals APRIMS/RECs) to engage in a modified version of Come to the Water.

    We offer the chance to still engage in Come to the Water in an online forum format in terms 2 & 3 (4?) whereby we can still experience some communal prayers such as Lectio Divina, prayers of gratitude, Christian Meditation and the like. We will also engage in conversation around our Reading chosen for this year – a book of poetry around grace & encounter., as well as times to bring our COVID-19 experiences to reflection and prayer.

    Leaders – do something for yourself and register here! We can mail out to you the short text we will be reading together and make more concrete plans before our first meet-up in May. I propose at this stage, that we might ‘meet’ for an hour during the 2nd of the dates proposed below -most likely outside of the school day hours.

    Our scheduled sessions for the 

    Session 1:  20 - 21 May 2020

    Session 2:  2 - 3 September 2020

    Session 3:  11 - 12 November 2020

    Workshop Description

    This project will support educators to be designers of learning through creating rigorous STEM inquiries that:

    • tackle local community issues
    • give students voice and agency to be the problem finders and problem solvers
    • uses a Design Thinking framework to develop deep understanding

    Teachers will participate in 4 workshops with an expectation they will implement strategies and tools explored in between each workshop. It is recommended 2 to 3 teachers per school participate to allow for collaboration, collegial discourse and to build capacity at school.

    This program requires collaboration between staff; therefore, schools are required to nominate between 2 to 3 teachers to participate in this professional learning.

    This is recommended for Years 3 and up.

    This project will take place over 4 days and participation at all four days is required.

      Fully Booked:  Participants transferred to 1 October from July -  Teacher Induction Module for Teachers New to Catholic Schools in South Australia

      All teachers new to Catholic schools in South Australia are required to attend an Induction Module (in the past known as Accreditation A) as part of the Accreditation requirements of the SACCS Accreditation Policy 2012 (available at 
      http://online.cesanet.adl.catholic.edu.au/docushare/dsweb/Get/Document-7713)

      INDUCTION MODULE COMPONENTS

      1: Catholic Schools Identity & Mission explores the nature of Catholic schools and the vocational call for all staff to be witnesses to and support schools' Catholic identity and mission, along with general information about CESA services.

      2: Professional Standards and Responsibilities provides important information about professional expectations, employment and legal obligations, rights, responsibilities and duty of care. Special attention is drawn to the CESA Code of Conduct and to the cross-sectorial document Protective Practices.

       

      3: Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum Training. All teachers in SA Catholic schools are required to complete Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum Training. This training is required before teachers can teach the Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum. (Please note that Responding to Abuse and Neglect is a separate mandatory requirement). 

       

      Teachers choose and register for each of the three Induction Module components are required. 

      e.g. Teacher A, a first year graduate, has not undertaken any of the components and so registers for all three components (Option 1).

      e.g. Teacher B, joining Catholic Education SA from another sector or from teaching interstate, has completed the Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum elsewhere and so registers for Components 1 & 2 (Option 2).

      e.g Teacher C, a new graduate employed in the Dicoese of Port Pirie, attended that Diocese' Induction Day (equivalent of Component 1) in Port Pirie in Term 1, and so registers for Components 2 & 3 (Option 3).

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

        This workshop is designed for teachers new to teaching RE in 2020 or 2019, 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.

        Following previous successful participation by schools in the Enhancing Catholic Identity Project, the 2021 round has been negotiated with the Catholic University (KUL), Belgium.

        The information sessions will expand on and update this information, including costs, requirements and deliverables, and provide the opportunity to discuss your questions.

        We look forward to many of our schools being involved in the 2021 round of the ECSI Project and I trust the information sessions will assist your school in its discernment about being involved. Surveys will be undertaken in the period March to April in 2021.

        NURTURING THE MUSTARD SEED 

        Venue:  McCracken Country Club, Victor Harbor

        A residential program for school leadership teams to develop capabilities in strategizing, leading and understanding principles of staff formation, followed by a 12 month accompaniment relationship with a consultant to support implementation, assist in master planning and provide professional mentoring. This will support leaders in excelling in the Leadership Standard of Leading Catholic Identity and provide strategies for clearly articulating a vision and mission for the school that embodies its Catholic Identity and promoting, maintaining and enhancing processes for dialogue, prayer and spiritual and religious formation.

        This enables leaders to effectively plan for Strategic Priority 1: Enhancing Catholic Identity through deliverable 1.2 Every school has discerned and implemented approaches to support staff spiritual and religious formation. They are designed to meet the needs of leaders in being able to strategise, plan, implement and review Staff Spiritual and Religious Formation.  Providing effective, localised and engaging formation opportunities in schools is central to developing authentic ways of enhancing Catholic Identity that is intentional and meaningful.

        This program supports the CESA Strategic Plan priority for all schools to be engaged in strengthening their Catholic Identity and the faith formation of their leaders and staff.  I would encourage schools who have not previously attended, those who have changes in their leadership teams and those schools who are revisiting their strategic plans to consider participating. It is strongly encouraged that as many members of a leadership team, including the Principal, attends to maximise shared learning and decision making. It is an intention that the experience is educational, formational and purposeful - that leaders will return to their schools with goals, strategies and actions named.  A consultant from the Staff Spiritual and Religious Formation Team is provided for ongoing engagement and support.

        We are asking that each school makes a $250 contribution per participant, towards the total cost of $520 per participant.  We anticipate this experience will contribute 20 hours towards the Teachers Registration Board’s requirement of professional learning for registration, for those needing to demonstrate this.  If you would like any further information please don’t hesitate to call me on 8301 6674 or email at julian.kluge@cesa.catholic.edu.au

        Schools promote themselves in an increasingly competitive market and the ability to view your website on all mobile and desktop devices is essential (and that is what a responsive website enables).

        Your school website and online presence are potentially the widest means of engaging with current and potential school families and the wider community.

        The key messages, imagery and tone of your website should reflect your school's strategic direction and are, more often than not, driven by the school principal.  This practical 1.5 hour session guides the principal (and an additional staff member who will project manage the project) through the process of developing and launching a responsive website.

        Project Overview:

        Website Functionality & Design Options

        Exploring your Objectives

        Knowing your Audience

        Improving your Content

        Understanding your Branding

        Planning your Website Redevelopment

        Cost: Free

        Time:  We will contact you with a suitable time slot.

        The basic all-inclusive cost for the development of your new website will be $3500.00.
