This is a rare occurrence as I spend most of my time (99.99%) inside the OneSchool Global School orbit of Campus Principals/ Associate Principals and my Regional Principal.
Great as this is, it's important to step outside the organisation from time to time and see what's happening out in the public schools and meet other people.
Usually when these meetings are on I'm at the Gisborne campus or else my absence for a day is too disruptive to my Hastings' campus. Not that I'm indispensable you understand - more that I would need to lean on a number of staff to cover my absence and that doesn't feel right when they are so busy.
At the moment, of course, the senior students are out doing external NCEA exams so this has freed up our schedules.
I'll report back on the experience in the next post.
