CAS Andover hub group - Launch meeting 21 Feb
Donna Robertson, CAS Master Teacher, and Kevin Peebles, CAS Master Teacher, from Harrow Way Community School, hosted the first CAS Andover Hub on 21 Feb. CAS Central talked to Donna for her thoughts on the first meeting.
"You always wonder who will turn up, " she observed. " I decided to invite most secondary schools in the area and a primary school. We had a great turn out and realised that we all had the same focus of sharing resources and expertise. It was like gaining an extension to my department. We were quick to discover that we all had skills that we could share and develop through the group to gain the one common goal of improving the education of the students in our area"
The cakes helped too! "
The feedback from the attendees was very positive -
"Yesterday was really helpful, thank you for getting us all together as I think that this will really benefit all going forward."
"Many thanks for the resources and I am looking forward to the next meeting. I appreciate the help given."
