Church School Leaders’ Conference – 23rd thumbnail_IMG_0044March 2017

Over 60 delegates enjoyed a day at the Marriott Hotel in Huntingdon discussing the theme of “Changing Minds”.  Keynote speakers were: Paul Dix on behaviour management; Karin Horowitz on well-being and resilience; Julie Westrop on community engagement; and  Nicola Grieves on children’s spirituality.  Bishop David joined us to lead us in worship and help us think about the Church of England’s Vision for Education.  More details of the talks will follow, but meanwhile here are some photos of our speakers on the day.
