CISC Annual Conference: 1-2 February 2024

The Vale Resort, Pontyclun, CF72 8JY

CISC Conference 2024 takes its place as the third in a trilogy of conferences which have focused on dialogue – Synodality in 2022, ‘Conversations at The Well’ in 2023 and now, in 2024, the ‘Formational Dialogue’ of who we as, Headteachers, our pupils and students – indeed, our whole school communities – are called to be as Communities of Faith in the 21st Century.

We’re thrilled to announce that our discernment will be led by our Guest Speaker and internationally renowned Catholic Writer & Speaker – Sr. Dr. Gemma Simmonds C.J. – who, along with other guests, will accompany support, challenge and extend our thinking within the unique spirit of the CISC Conference experience.

So come and join us in Wales with our host school – St John’s Cardiff – for our 2024 Conference: Here I am, Lord…Who am I called to be? There’s a CISC welcome in the valleys awaiting each and every one of you!

The programme is firming up with the usual mix of keynote addresses, hosted conversations and workshops. Approximate timings and the programme schedule are outlined below.
