Staff Induction

There was certainly lots of 'Thinking Big and Being Brave' happening at our staff retreat. Some incredibly powerful thinking occurred as we collaborated together to make meaning and develop a collective understanding of our Core Business 'LEARNING'. We worked through a process of defining what learning will be like at Stonefields School.
“Learning is a dynamic, fulfilling process of actively building on what we know; by questioning, thinking and connecting to make meaning, expand knowledge and deepen understandings.”
The understanding of our vision becomes richer, deeper and fuller as together we have further unpacked the learning we would like to see caused and activated at Stonefields School. It became very apparent,very quickly just how talented, committed and enthusiastic our staff are as we brainstormed how the learning hubs are going to function. Our students and their families are in for a treat.
We are ready to open and getting more excited as we move closer towards our grand opening 3 February.

Staff Induction - Think Big and Be Brave

We are excited this morning as our staff come together to start the induction process. There is a full day planned where together we are going to make sense of the Vision principles and establish the norms that will underpin the culture we want to develop at Stonefields School. We will keep you posted on the events over the next few days.
