CISC 31st Virtual Annual Conference

 

Thank you to everyone who attended our first ever CISC Virtual Conference 2021 – ‘To Grow is to Change’. This quotation from St John Henry Newman gave us much to explore both spiritually and practically and we were thrilled that the Conference was opened by my former colleague Prof. Mgr. Rod Strange, renowned and highly regarded biographer of St John Henry Newman.

Commentary on the pastoral challenges of our times was initiated and explored by guest speakers David Wells, Sr Gemma Simmonds and Philip Robinson and operational concerns and opportunities discussed in a ‘round table’ conversation with Stone King, Moore Kingston Smith and CISC heads.

Whilst we hope it’s a conference style that we never have to repeat, as with everything we’ve experienced in the challenges of COVID, there are positives to be taken from it.  Plans for Conference 2022 are already underway, returning to a late January date, and we look forward to sharing them as soon as we can.   Socially distanced dancing will be assured by handbags on the disco floor!

Annual Conference 2020

The 30th anniversary CISC Conference 2020 was held in Glasgow on 16 and 17 January at the Hilton Grosvenor Hotel. CISC took over the whole hotel (a CISC first I believe!) in the West End of Glasgow, alongside the botanical gardens and across the way from the University of Glasgow. It was a wonderful hotel and we are truly grateful to the team their for their hospitality, kindness and warm welcome.

The theme of the conference ‘The Pearl of Great Price’ symbolised the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ of our schools whose identity and ethos are rooted in the fundamental understanding that our educational imperative is to give life to the full to all members of our school communities. And this fullness of understanding comes through encounter with God, intellectually morally and spiritually.
