Leading the Learning Powered School/Centre. We were delighted to welcome Graham Powell who led a workshop on Building Learning Power for our School Principals and Deputy Principals, Youthreach Centre Coordinators and Resource Staff this week.
Also attending this event was CEO Peter Kierans, Education& Leadership Officer Maire Ni Bhroithe and LMETB Counties Youthreach Co-ordinator Liz Lavery. Maire & Liz organised this amazing day where Graham spoke so well and explained to us that building learning power is about helping young people to become better learners, both in school and out.
Teachers from LMETB attended a further Building Learning Power later in week.
Two LMETB schools are currently working with Graham Powell and have taken on the BLP principals; Colaiste De Lacy Ashbourne and Colaiste ChuChulainn Dundalk. All staff and students in these schools have attended BLP workshops and are encouraging their students to be tenacious and resourceful, imaginative and logical, self disciplined and self-aware, collaborative and inquisitive.
