A dozen members of our Central Administration team set off on a road trip yesterday.
Visiting Stratford Northwestern Secondary School and Anne Hathaway Public School, the crux of the trip was to give them (as staff working outside of the school environment) the opportunity to see first-hand the effect of their work in schools, to experience how the inclusion of all students is being embraced and delivered and to connect the dots of how the Board’s strategic plan plays out in school and student life.
“It was also a chance to finally put faces to the names of people we’ve worked with for years”, emphasized one road-tripper.
Organizing this type of field trip for central administrative staff has been a goal of Ted Doherty’s (Director of Education) for some time and he was to have a front row seat for the inaugural tour.
A similar trip to other schools is in the works for Spring to allow more central staff to go, to connect with students and teachers and to see their work come to life.
