Term 3 PL Day: Schools – A Step Towards the Future
Our Term 3 SPC Professional Learning Day is a slight departure from, but relevant to, our usual term 3 technology/future schooling based themes. The focus is on the work of principals and their leadership teams who have built different structural models – physical and learning based at their schools. We are extremely grateful to be able to have three different approaches to this challenge outlined through the keynote. Stephanie McConnell is the foundation principal at the new Lindfield Learning Village K-12 school, Janeen Silcock is the foundation principal of the brand new Ballina Coast High School and Christine Cawsey the principal at the very established Rooty Hill High School. All three will present how they are enacting the concepts of ‘school’ and ‘learning’ – two who have the opportunity to build from the ground up and one who is constantly rethinking and repurposing in an established and successful context.
The workshops will also feature the DoE’s School Learning Environments and Change Unit (formerly Futures learning) who will explain how they support schools in this area.
NOTE; The location for this PL Day is different to the normal location – it is at the Novotel Sydney Central (169-179 Thomas St Sydney)
