As the CaSPA Executive were due to meet with the Catholic Education Stakeholders group on Nov 1, President Andrew Watson and Executive Officer, Frank FitzGerald took the opportunity to meet with a small group of Principals from both Systemic and Independent Catholic Schools. The meeting which took place on the evening of October 31 in Sydney, had a number of objectives:

  • to get some feedback on the Governance Project which is currently the focus of the Board
  • to gain insight on how CaSPA could better support Catholic Secondary Principals in NSW

The latter is a complex issue given many factors including the existence of other important networks for Principals - especially ACSP - and the challenge of 11 different jurisdiction and the geographical spread of schools across the state.

CaSPA is not endeavoring to duplicate the work of other networks, but rather to determine how best to target our assistance, advice and collegial support. The CaSPA Field Officer for NSW - Rob Laidler - will continue to meet with groups around the state to assist them and promote better communication between these groups and the CaSPA Board.
