Did someone say Harvard? Yes, Orbis did.

Wednesday 11th December
Orbis team

We’ve selected a group of experienced leaders who are strategic, open minded and exemplary learners to take part in the Harvard Graduate School of Education Leadership for School Excellence program.

During Term 4 we launched the Harvard learning with an information session at Orbis to help prepare our principals for the intensive program in Sydney. We were lucky enough to have Cate Gardner, Director of The Principals’ Center, Harvard Graduate School of Education Skype in to talk with our principals about what to expect during the intensive and answer their great questions.

We also asked our leaders to tell us what would enhance their learning. We know principals’ time is precious, so making sure we understand exactly what they want will help us curate their learning to make sure it’s purposeful and meaningful. We can’t wait to see what our principals take away from the program and how it translates to improvement in their schools.

We will be inviting our leaders back to Orbis in 2020 to continue collaborating as they start implementing their new learning. Stay tuned for updates throughout the year and make sure you check in to our Facebook page to keep track of how our principals are finding the program and to get some leadership tips from Harvard.
