This week our PD session was about linking to our vision of ‘ Creating Climate of Possibility….with our Learning Beliefs, Essence Statements, Shotover Capacities and Concept Inquiry and then how we monitor learning. Sounds a lot so we broke it down into steps starting with the Vision.

We watched the famous Ken Robinson Ted talks ‘Death Valley’ and the SLT shared how the SPS vision statement came alive in the initial stages of school set up after watching Sir Ken.


I’ve watched this clip many times but each time I get even more information from it. I was now thinking and making links to our learners and how it all links together.
