It was a great start to Term Two for RSAS schools thanks to strong return to school efforts by RSAS teams across Australia. There were many excellent initiatives aimed at getting students back from the break and into school on day one of the new Term. The Ali Curung RSAS team held an Easter egg hunt and ‘colour smash’ at the local school, with community members, local police and teachers involved in the day. This is a great example of a fun activity which strengthens relationships between stakeholders and gets the whole community involved with school attendance.
This month’s webinar covers conflict management and how to plan for and manage challenging situations. This is an important topic and relevant to every RSAS team. The webinars provide a great opportunity to hear from other teams and RSAS providers across Australia and to discuss tools for dealing with conflict. Providers, RSAS teams and PMC staff are encouraged to attend.
This month has seen the introduction of the Clustered Leadership Workshops which were held in both Tennant Creek and Perth. Both workshops were well attended with excellent feedback from the RSAS teams that attended.
We have continued to focus on the development of a new RSAS Train the Trainer Kit and have also promoted our art competition for the front page.
Our team has been out and about with Amanda attending the Perth Leadership Workshop and Alicia presenting at the Tennant Leadership Workshop.
NESA is working on an exciting new accreditation training offer that we will announce in our upcoming newsletter later this month.
