News from our Schools Network...
Every year we hold a conference for the Headteachers and other school senior leaders and two per year for our Goals Coordinators and Chaplains We meet in each other’s schools. The most recent were both in Newcastle. Both included feedback from the Society’s 2016 Chapter in Rome. RSCJ led sessions on the themes of the Chapter and the Calls, encouraging staff to consider how the Calls could speak to them in their roles in school as well as personally. These sessions were received very favourably.
We usually choose other topical themes, for example Mental Health Issues and Education. For the Goals’ Conference priority is given to the goal which is being highlighted this year, as well as network events coming up and special anniversaries. In September 2017 we will be reflecting on the opening of St Philippine Duchesne’s bicentenary and the 175th anniversary of the Society in England.
You will see in our photos that the café in the Sixth Form at Fenham has a special patron!
