School leadership personnel plan for a pilgrimage to Ireland
Following the success of the 2011 Pilgrimage for NPPG Principals, the National Presentation Principals Group (NPPG) is particularly pleased that Sr Maria Lazzaro pbvm is again available and willing to lead the 2012 pilgrimage to Ireland in September. Five of the six NPPG schools have nominated a member of their school leadership team to take part in a very substantial programme that has been developed from reflection on the 2011 experience and in consultation with Sr Maria. It has been designed to ensure that the best possible value is gained from the pilgrimage, both for the pilgrims and for the school communities they serve. Those taking part will bring back and share with their school communities their reflections and learnings from the pilgrimage experience.
It is envisaged that the pilgrimage will be a biennial undertaking, alternating with the Presentation Schools Staff Conference, and that it will continue to be aimed at school leadership personnel.
