Our two keynote speakers -- Sr. Maureen Glavin RSCJ in the morning, and Dr. Stephen Brown in the afternoon -- shared their perspectives on "Competencies of Compassion."
There were different workshops, and the topics included:
Teaching and learning at KRB: Targeting Mathematics competencies through rich tasks
Leading with the Heart
Student engagement in creating a sustainable school
Introducing philosophy for children (P4C) using the community of inquiry approach.
We ended the first day with and African-themed dinner catered by refugees from Africa, and a concert. The evening has been a wonderful experience of bringing different cultures together.
