Today our group visited Mari Mari village & learnt about the 5 tribes of the Sabah region. They saw how the tribes lived, ate traditional food & enjoyed tribal dances & music. They also explored 2 of the main religions of Borneo by visiting a Buddhist temple & mosque #marimari
A quick #CGSRead to follow a long one. Infused with hope, despite misgivings, that we & our children can flourish in the social/media world we have created not if we deny it, but if we stay aware of what we trade for convenience, slow down & ask always the critical questions.
Our Adventure Club contingent arrived safely in Borneo. Over next couple of days there will be exploring Kota Kinabalu. This afternoon they walked to the local food and clothing markets and began learning about life in the Sabah region. Stay tuned for updates. #borneo
Next #CGSReads. Took a while in last weeks of term & a bit more ambitious than a standard airport pickup, but so worth it. Like all travel, travel in the mind enlightens self at least as much as other. Important reading for the global era if we’re truly to understand each other.
A privilege today to chair a fascinating panel discussion at @AISNSW Governance Symposium on succession, recruitment & regeneration of school leaders. Big challenges in preparing next generation of school leaders in face of stunning figures on high turnover & disruptive change.
