As these final weeks of 2018 start to roll out I wish you all every blessing as you juggle the complexity and weight of expectation that comes with it.
2018 has been a challenging year for us as an association in some regards and I know for many of you in your sites as well.
I would like to thank everyone of you for the work you do and the service you provide. At times it has been thankless and challenging and you have probably felt alone. That’s a challenge that we must address as we move forward.
As we plan for (and move into) 2019 we look with anticipation and hope. As an association we will be ensuring we are proactive, strategic and endeavouring to build individual as well as collective strength.
I’d like to than John and his team for the work they have done in 2018 – much of which goes unseen by many of us. The integrity and Christian service that John and his staff bring to our association is something we can model our own practice on.
For those of who have served on the LESNW Council this year we say a heartfelt thank you – and also to the sites who have released staff to contribute (in whatever forum) to our association. There are a lot of people contributing in a lot of different ways.
Every blessing to you all – for the holiday break, but especially these next two weeks.
Last Friday principals and directors received a revised draft LESNW Constitution, together with the notice of the change of date for the General Meeting to be now held on Thursday 31 January 2019. While this is unfortunate, we will work over the January break to continue the work of (what will become) the new Governance Committee. In the meantime, please register your learning community’s attendance at the meeting at this link. Alternately, you can register your attendance via LifeSize Conferencing at this link.
Please consider any nominations you might have to the new council when it is enacted – your own Council/Board members who have special skills and capabilities, as well as community leaders who might bring acumen to our council – business, legal, financial, industrial etc etc. The call for nomination will come out when the new constitution is adopted, but in the meantime, please give it some thought!!
