President’s Message

As our colleagues across Greater Sydney enter their ninth week of lockdown, and with our regional colleagues also now in lockdown, we have become well-versed in postponing, cancelling and the dreaded tba across our calendars and schedules.

We are collectively trying so hard to stay connected, albeit in isolation. I am grateful for my Educate Plus comrades at this time and am enjoying virtual coffee catch ups to mull over what may or may not transpire for the rest of this year, how this may affect us and what measures we are putting in place … so much uncertainty is nice to share. I encourage you to reach out to one of your networks this week for a catch up—you will be so glad you did!

One thing that is certain is our upcoming Non-Conference Week Online . Thank you, Educate Plus for offering such a rich selection of speakers over the three days that was to be our International Conference week in Adelaide. For many in secondary institutions, the week of 7 – 9 September is the end of a remarkable Term – what better way to end it than by logging into some rich PD.

I am ready for a reset, reframe and a bit of rewiring and can’t wait to dive in – see you online in September!
