a. Jean Batten School website:
During the course of the contract there has been opportunity for me, as Principal of the school, to meet with in-school facilitators from the cluster schools to discuss a range of issues related to their role. This has been a valuable opportunity for them to share the positive work they have been doing in their schools and to offer their experiences to other members of the group for them to try in their schools. It has also been an opportunity for me to facilitate discussions around problems that each of the members of the group has encountered in order to find group solutions, and often to find group agreement, about the shared problem. Group members have found this to be a useful time together as many of the problems they have encountered have been problems in all schools so their feelings of frustration and isolation have been alleviated. It has also given the group members new ideas and actions to take back to their schools to share with staff and has given me insight to the problems and possibilities staff members are facing as ICT use has developed within the school/cluster.
