State Leaders Day
On Monday I attended State Leaders Day at the Convention Centre with over a thousand other educational leaders. The day gave me an opportunity to attend workshops and network with other principals. I heard from the Minister for Education and the CE of the Department for Education around the future directions of education in SA. I listened to principal’s share their school’s improvement journey and picked up some ideas for our great school!
Enjoy your weekend and Father’s Day!
