First time principal...setting targets in a post NS world!!

So NS has gone...and I couldn't be happier...and nor could my team.But this has left a bit of a dilemma that we have wrestled with all summer...what to do...I personally get the feeling ( and from my online communities of principals I don't think it is just me) that we are all having mixed feelings...we are ebullient to have the freedom to get back to what we know is best for kids and their whanau..but we also are a bit like sheep that have escaped the paddock..we are bouncing around…See More

Future Focused

Sitting listening to Derek Wenmouth talk about adapting education for the future...it is something we all know and something most of us also believe is a problem that needs solving......but it is only as I sit here as a Principal on a first time principal's course....that I am realising that I actually am now in a position to actually try and do something to try and evince change!But how to go about this??? Do we as a school take this opportunity of rapid change and turmoil that has happened…See More

Week 7

A breakthrough... I hope it continues!The tension is dissipating and a new shared language is being builtI'm so happy that we have negotiated our way through the first bit of tension and I feel we did so due to taking the time to listen.Not just the surface nod we often think is listening.. but actually opening up to listen and perceive each other's point of views. Sometimes not the easiest or comfiest process.. but I feel it has been hugely worthwhile!Fingers firmly x for next weekSee More

Made it to week 5....where did the time go!

So holy moly...I survived...in fact I really have to be the luckiest human ever! It is week 5 and I have no idea how we got to halfway through the term already. It has been a rollercoaster of a ride...with huge highs and some moments of whoah..this is too much!From dealing with a school in debt and then realising that yes I have inherited debt...but unfortunately I need to get more in debt as some systems aren't in place and some health and safety needs action NOW!To the realisation that there…See More

Week 6!

It's week 6 and the easy road I have had so far is over!The transition stress is starting for some staff...it is long overdue...as no staff can deal with stress like they have this year and not have concerns and fears about the future along with resentment around what has happened to them in the past. Taking this first 6 weeks and focusing on dealing with tin tack stuff.. health and safety, grounds, procedures etc was a bit of a tactical move...in that those are low investment areas...not many…See More
