CaSPA and The Plenary Council 

It was great news for CaSPA that our President, Loretta Wholley has been chosen to be on one of the six Writing Groups connected to the Plenary Council. Lorettta was chosen for the Conversion, Reform and Renewal Writing Group (Theme 6). All of the groups have a tremendous task ahead of them to prepare a submission to the Plenary Council by Easter next year.  In order to see what Loretta and the Theme 6  team are discerning, please visit the Plenary Council website (www.plenarycouncil.catholic.org.au). On the website you will also be able to view the other five themes of the Plenary Council.

Executive Officer
The CaSPA Board has three main pieces of news:
  • Currently the Board is finalising its new Strategic Plan for 2020 - 22. In conjunction with Thorne Consulting the Board has developed a renewed Vision and Mission Statement. In addition the Board has identified three key values that will underpin its work in the three years ahead and key targets have been identified. The Strategic Plan will be launched early next year once the document has been through a final draft and proof process with the Board.
  • Alongside the new Startegic Plan, the Board has also entered negotiations with SchoolZine to build a new website for CaSPA. This work is currently being undertaken and the current website will remain in place until early next year. All Principals will be advised of the launch date and will receive new connection details for the Principals' Login section of the website.

 

  • The CasPA Board wishes to thank Paul Rijken for his great service and leadership as a Director over the last two years. Paul was also instrumental in leading the planning and the facilitating of Korero this year in Adelaide. The new Director nominated from APCSS (South Australia) for the next two years is Ms Paddy McEvoy. Paddy is currently the Principal of St Aloysius College in Adelaide and we wish paddy well in her new role as a CaSPA Director.

CaSPA is a full member of the International Confederation of Principals (ICP). It was my privilege to represent the CaSPA board at the recent Council Meeting and the Convention held in Shanghai. It was a wonderful opportunity to hear perspectives and meet educational leaders from around the world. It was also a great privilege to learn from some world renown researchers and academics. Congratulations to ICP on a wonderful conference.

Farewells and Merry Christmas

Dear Colleagues

I hope the 2019 Academic Year has been a joyous one for you, your students, your families and your staff.

On behalf of the CaSPA Board I would like to convey my very best wishes to all the Catholic Secondary Principals who are retiring or moving to other professional pursuits. I congratulate all of you for the wonderful work you have done for your communities and giving so much in your complex and hope filled role as a principal.

There are two CaSPA Directors I would also like to farewell with our good wishes. My thanks to Paul Rijken and Denis Graham for their valuable and committed service to the CaSPA Board in their time as Directors. My sincere thanks also to Rob Laidler who has been our NSW Field Officer for the last two years. Throughout his contract Rob has made a very professional impact on the commnications and connections with the Catholic Secondary Principals in NSW. Next year the CaSPA Board will be finalising its Strategic Plan and will be considering future office structures for CaSPA to best serve Principals and State / Territory associations.

My very best wishes to you and your families. Have a Happy and Holy Christmas and may the New year be full of joy and happiness.

Enjoy a very restful holiday too.

 

Loretta Wholley

CaSPA President
