Principals and Directors
It was terrific to come together last Friday at Immanuel Gawler and I would like to thank our Executive Director and his executive team for sharing some of what they do and clarifying their roles, as well as outlining many of the strategic undertakings that are currently happening.
It has become evident that role and structure clarity with in our association is important and I would welcome the sharing of any ideas on how this could be improved.
John outlined on Friday that we will seek the support of a consultant for the next phase of our LESNW Strategic Planning. We have gathered a lot of feedback and data (through QS analysis etc) and it’s now time to get a third party/more objective input. John said on Friday that we need to be careful not to be myopic about the process and engaging with some one from outside our association will bring us a clearer direction.
New LESNW Board
It was also stated on Friday that we need a strong board to provide strong governance and this in turn will benefit all of our sites, both individually and collectively.
Please consider people who you believe might be an asset to our board and especially people with skills and experience in education, strategy, policy, finance, risk, legal, marketing or commerce.
Learning Community Clusters
James, Mark and Terri last Friday all shared about the vision of ensuring the hubs/clusters are functioning highly. This was a focal point of the previous LESNW Strategic Plan and so it is terrific to see the directions and structures they have framed together. The clusters/hubs have enormous capacity to support our emerging goal of building capacity and strengthening leader well-being. All sites are encouraged to engage in and with their cluster/hub in what ever form it takes.
