LESNW Strategic Plan Goal Five: Equipping governance and leadership for the emerging future
LESNW works to grow and strengthen governance. Our learning communities support their leaders in continual development for working towards a preferred future in a changing environment. Leaders network and collaborate with each other and more broadly.

Tatachilla Lutheran College’s Eco-classroom was the site for the whole day collaboration of leaders from LESNW learning communities on Friday 21 August.
Sarah Hoff-Zweck invited us to engage in ‘deep listening’ and to allow God to speak to us through God’s word and God’s creation.
Session 1 the Growing deep capability of Leading the Team: Creating purpose and clarity: was explored with a focus on Vision both from a personal and learning community perspective. Session 2 we then transitioned into reflections on nurturing the faith, again connecting the personal to the professional.
The local catering provided by Tatachilla was exceptional and during lunch Sarah and John Dow shared further information about the Eco-Classroom and ways students and the community are engaging with this invaluable resource.
In the afternoon, the primary and secondary leaders separated into sub-group sessions, the primary leaders engaging in case clinics and the secondary leaders collaborating on areas of professional interest.
Congratulations to Sarah Hoff Zweck, Penny McKenzie, Darren Altus and Karen Schoff for their collaboration, planning and organisation of an extremely purposeful, reflective and informative day.
