Our big event on Tuesday was an inaugural coming together of about 40 participants. We'll share some photos and news on the blog asap. Trying to move away from the traditional 'staff meeting' or 'pd have it done to us mode' was a challenge that we managed by creating a more informal environment yet with a focused agenda plan. This will evolve and develop based on feedback and input from all participants who will help to drive our learning and change next steps. Thanks to everyone for your contribution. Now that we have moved outwards beyond our leadership group, we can keep connected through sharing happenings on the blog. That way our visitors who joined us like will Sharon (RT Lit) and Linda (RTLB) and our staff and whanau can keep up to date. It was lovely that our MOE Senior Advisor Lynn was able to join us from Dunedin as well.
