This year I have been privileged to begin working with a cluster of Catholic schools on Auckland’s North Shore.

We peppered the conversation with inputs from Michael Fullan and Derek Wenmoth to help our thinking.
Below are the ideas that came out of the conversation. Please excuse the shadows on the photos.
