We had a staff retreat at Sixtus Lodge for our Teacher Only Days at the beginning of 2016. We shared a presentation about the Future Focussed Education objectives in our Annual Plan. The presentation allowed us to share some initial ideas with the staff about what we would be exploring in 2015. At the start of the presentation we acknowledged the things that we are already doing across the school to help prepare children for an ever changing world. We also took this opportunity to explain that we have been exploring some of these ideas in the Senior Syndicate since 2010, before there was any mention of 'modern learning environments'.
