Welcome and Introductions

Why a Head Teacher?


Appreciative inquiry

Appreciative Inquiry

Appreciative inquiry is a strategy for purposeful change that identifies the best of "what is" to pursue dreams and possibilities of "what could be." It is a co-operative search for the strengths, passions and life-giving forces that are found within every system—those factors that hold the potential for inspired, positive change

Appreciative Inquiry Principles

We move in directions of what we ask questions about;

So by deliberately asking positive questions we create constructive dialogue and inspired action

Participants use positive stories in the same way an artist uses paints to create a portrait of the community's potential. They think great thoughts and create great possibilities for their community, then turn those thoughts into provocative propositions for themselves.

The HT network is about creating the possibilities of managing our work loads, (system) understanding our roles and responsibilities and having a strong dynamic role (strategy) in the SWSI as a cohesive and inclusive level of the management team (structure). Supporting and inviting (skills) others (staff) to work collaborative to offer the best teaching and learning experience possible to individuals and organisations. The core group becomes a support to other HT's (shared values)- gains new learning and the cycle continues. We create a provocative proposition.
