Individual culture & context drives the vision process


Shared visioning process NZCPPA. Learn more at this link.
In preparation for the visioning session with the St Patrick's Murrumbeena staff, it's important to develop the probe questions.
These questions need to connect with school documentation to provide a valuable starting point based on the existing school culture. The open ended nature of the probe questions will allow room for new growth and development beyond the current school context. The vision is a picture of the future we want to create together to enable everyone to flourish.

These are four probe questions that are based on the existing school vision and strategic plan documents and are the starting point for our process.
Note: The word community will be used below to include children, parents, staff and parish

1. What are the most effective ways to strengthen and integrate the Catholic faith within the lives of our community ?
2. How can we develop the unique potential of every individual in readiness for 21st Century learning and life ?
3. What are the most effective ways to engage our community into learning and the life of our
school ?
4. In what ways can we best enable our children to become resilient and confident learners ?

Process:
Allow for approximately twenty-five to thirty staff. Move into about five or six groups of five with a mixture of year groups for the Classic Brainstorming and 10/4 Voting process for about 15 minutes for each of the four probes.
