Let us re-shape, re-define and re-imagine creative thinking to encourage our students to challenge the status quo in their studies, careers and personal lives. Is it true that much of what we o in education today is what we did decades ago? Have we just changed the names and added technology? If so, then the status quo will continue to ‘look like the status quo’. It is easy not to change, not to challenge. But let us inspire new thinking.
Re-imagine everything! Think not only about change in our institution, but changes in ourselves. Government and industry leaders do not have the answers. It is up to us to re-imagine the alternatives; it is not enough to protest against leadership and to expect them to do better. We have to re-imagine the education revolution!

Last Week at a Glance
Microsoft Imagine Launch took place on November 4th. Four schools attended. Everyone was excited by what was presented about the Microsoft programme. Students participated in a demo session and asked lots of questions. There was a lot of interest in the Science lab and the upcoming Science classes. Hopefully we will get some recruits for the Science and Computer programmes from these groups.
The Master of Education in Teaching and Learning programme had their Fall Conferenceon Saturday 6th November. Despite some technology hiccups that interfered with the live broad cast of the opening of the conference in Minnesota, the event at CCM went smoothly. The facilitators were quite happy at the standard and quality of the presentations by the Master’s students. Thanks to the team!
