On 25 May 2016 we held a Vision & Values Event at Bader. An open invite was extended to all Bader school community members. We all gathered in the school hall – pupils, parent, grand-parents, carers and staff – to discuss our vision for the future of Bader and what it is we value as a school community. Two hours later, having worked in several mixed groups, we gathered together the large sheets of paper that respective groups had recorded their thoughts on. Everybody had been encouraged to graphically represent (with annotations) their thoughts. The sheets were shared with Tracey Ezard in Australia and a conversation had (via Skype) on their content and the messages they convey. We have been working with Tracey’s materials as we work on getting better at getting better; collaborating and creating what Tracey terms ‘The Buzz’. Tracey has produced the graphical representation shown here. The original is hanging proudly in our school reception.
