    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.

    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

    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

    2021 Cognitive Coaching Facilitated by: Gavin Grift

    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)

    30-40 places are available to school leaders for this unique learning opportunity.

    The First Spiritual Exercises: Inner Peace in Friendship with Jesus

    The First Spiritual Exercises as originally conceived by St Ignatius Loyola and adapted by Fr Michael Hansen SJ consist of four retreats.  Each retreat includes guided prayer exercises, individual reflection and spiritual conversation.  ‘Inner Peace in Friendship with Jesus’ is the second FSE retreat offered in our program following the success of ‘Inner Peace in Divine Love’ in 2018 & 2019.

     The FSE offers life through something strangely ordinary – listening and conversation. In sacred listening we hold the other with reverence and humility. In spiritual conversation, with the focus on the Spirit at work in the exercises, we give and receive life. A single story from another can change us for life. Such stories reach deep and catch us up, to transform and nourish. And our life stories carry life for others. The FSE is full of deep stories, five or six every exercise – our stories, the story of the universe, of people in great need, of intimacy with Jesus.
