Aummmmm wooo wooooo bop didit (The Beach Boys)
Groucho Marx' famous line about joining clubs aside, I belong to a Senior Educational Leadership Team or SELT for short.
We meet each term and I really enjoy the day (sometimes two) of comradeship and stimulating ideas with fellow Principals and leaders in our organisation.
What I especially love is that there is always something cooking. The current something is our timetable structure.
Exploring ways to minimise disruption, focus on learning time and incorporate Project Based Learning is exciting.
I've been an advocate for disrupting the timetable for a long time. For a few SELTs we have spitballed ways to do that, and now we're close to a major revamp.
The details are still being explored but what I love is our ability to put some blue sky thinking into practice.
