Every week at Halcyon London International School, our staff engage in a dedicated learning workshop: an opportunity to reflect, learn from one another, share new ideas for classroom tasks, and support each other in delivering ever-improving learning to our students. These workshops are often an important space for our Project Leaders to share updates and resources on portfolios including Student Voice, Sustainability, Staff Wellbeing and more – this is a key part of our commitment to shared leadership.
In one of Halcyon’s staff workshops, teachers considered how they could most effectively incorporate Halcyon’s commitment to sustainability into their daily practice. Martyn Steiner (Sustainability Project Leader and Science/Environmental Systems & Societies teacher) created a ‘staff leaderboard’ using Google Sheets, determined by the number of ‘sustainability actions’ that each staff member completed. These activities include having a chat with a colleague about sustainability ideas, visiting the student sustainability site, and sharing a sustainability-focused teaching resource with other members of our team. Celeste Gardner (PHE Teacher) and Stephanie Cooke (History and Individuals and Societies Teacher) also used this workshop to deliver a CAS/Service as Action introduction to teachers.
