This will be a short Food for Thought because I know many of you are so busy. Lats night's Graduation ceremony was definitely one for all of us to be proud about. It was a quality event and one that our community and VIP's certainly appreciated. It reflective the incredible talent that we have in our students body with excellent speeches and musical performances. Michael, Emma and the rest of the secondary team put in hours of work behind the scenes to ensure everything was organized and under control down to the finest minutia. This attention to detail created a very smooth and slick ceremony that flowed perfectly. Everyone involved deserves huge congratulations.
This weeks Food for Thought comes from a combination of an blog post, 'Poking Holes in Innovation,' that I follow by A.J.Juliani and from looking through old youtube videos that I copied because I thought that they might be useful in the future. Combined they raise similar questions that relate to leadership and the spread of ideas and change. Since joining ISHCMC in 2013 it has been wonderful to see how open minded and risk taking many of you have become and how willing you are to move teaching and learning forward, not only in our own school, but also beyond. I suppose the question is where do you think we are today in this progression and how far can we go in influencing a revolution in education.
I realize that the camera is a bit shaky and in no way wish to liken you to the 'happy campers' who are enjoying a beautiful day on the hillside, but rather the commentary about the chain of events that occur.
