HWB network

Our recent HWB network in September welcomed Education Scotland’s new Education Officer for the HWB Team, Janice Watson.  Janice talked us through using their new resource – HWB responsibility of all, making the links, making it work.  Use the link below to access the document from the ES site:

Janice kindly gave us her presentation, which you are welcome to use in your own establishment.  It’s now on our HWB GLOW site, in the HWB network tab.   Or you can access it here:

Our senior Active Schools Co-ordinator, Barry Cook, updated us on what’s happening in the world of PEPAS and showed us a few inspirational films.  Here are the YouTube links:

If you missed the network, this should give you a flavour of what you missed.  Please get in touch with Barry Cook or myself (Carolynne McKendry) if you’d like any more info.

What’s happening @ Education Scotland

 

Our very own Kerry Crichton paid us a visit recently, as part of an input by Education Scotland to our HWB network.  Kerry gave us an insightful presentation (using the bang up to date software, prezi) on the work of the national HWB team.  Those of you who are familiar with Kerry will know her presentations are always interesting – she even managed to tell a story about sheep which was relevant to HWB and enterprise!  You can access her presentation online by clicking this link:

George Sinclair spoke more widely about moderation, which I’m sure will be of interest to any teacher in any setting.  His presentation – using the medium of Powerpoint, which we’re all more familiar with, is here:

Education Scotland – Moderation

Alison and I are considering presenting to specific stages @ the next network in May as many staff have said they would welcome the opportunity to talk with their sector partners about specific issues that affect them.  Please let us know if you have a view on how we should organise the next network – it only works if it’s what you want.
