We are thrilled to announce that our 30th anniversary CISC Conference 2020 will be in Glasgow on 16 and 17 January at the Hilton Grosvenor Hotel. CISC will be taking over the whole hotel (a CISC first I believe!) which sits in the West End of Glasgow, alongside the botanical gardens and across the way from the University of Glasgow. It is a wonderful hotel and, I hope, will afford a much more bespoke and personal conference for you all.

The theme of the conference ‘The Pearl of Great Price’ symbolises 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.

We are delighted to announce the programme of guest speakers, workshops and extra-curricular activities(!) including:

  • Professor Sir Harry Burns, former Chief Medical Officer for Scotland and professor of global public health at the University of Strathclyde
  • Dame Alison Peacock, Chief Executive of the Chartered College of Teaching
  • Ten Ten Theatre will focus on their RSE programme
  • Scottish Catholic Education Service leading on Inclusivity and Safeguarding
  • CISC with Richard Hester will present on good governance
  • Stone King and Kingston Smith will navigate the landscape – issues and trends

Mass will be celebrated by Archbishop Tartaglia with Bishop John Keenan and Canon Michael McMahon concelebrating. Further updates will follow but I hope that the quality and nature of the programme thus far has whet your appetite!

In order to ensure sufficient accommodation, we have secured all bedrooms at the hotel and a small overflow at the Hilton’s sister hotel, close by, should additional rooming be required. As always, accommodation at the hotel will be prioritised for delegates booking before the closing date, ahead of being opened to exhibitors.

In a change from previous years, and to allow for travel to be booked at the earliest time and with the cheapest prices, ONLINE BOOKINGS WILL CLOSE on Friday 18 October 2019. I hope that this change in protocol will provide you with greater flexibility in your planning and preparations for conference.

I’m enormously grateful to Matthew at St Aloysius’ and his PA Monica whose local lore, advice and support has been invaluable.

So, pack your dancing shoes – a ceilidh is de rigeur north of the border – and whether you tak’  the high road or the low road, we’ll see you in Glasgow to celebrate the achievements of the last 30 years!
