16 Aug Countdown to the Planning Retreat – please contribute
TUESDAY 16th August 2011
On Friday – Sunday 26th – 28th August 2011 the Strategic Planning Coordination Committee meets to finalise the school’s strategic plan for 2012-2020. Within a very short timescale (April – August) we have tried to make this a participatory process, using surveys, workshops,focus groups outside the school, this planning blog and meetings of the school Planning Forum. In these last two weeks, we want to make sure that as many other constituents as possible are aware of our progress and our thinking, and have an opportunity to make final comments and contributions.
So, watch out for a daily entry inviting your feedback on a specific theme, and please take five minutes to tell us what you think by using the comment facility below.
Pete Wildman, Amy Seefeldt, Kirsten Bradby, Eleanor Nicholson, Jonathan Long, Dave Schoonmaker (Board member), Rev. TZ Kundan (Board member).
Our objectives and plans are developed on the basis of our belief about what is most important – educationally, socially, emotionally, spiritually, for the individual, the community and the world.
Over the next year we will be spending time debating and writing a set of “guiding principles” for Woodstock. These will be central to our decision-making at the school. But we need to test whether right from the beginning of this process we have a sense of what our community believes is important, our shared values and beliefs about Woodstock.
Please comment on this post and write below three (or more) values which should guide our planning. Thank you.
