Promotion of LEAD in our School Community

In our 'O' Drive, files with headings of each area of LEAD were set up. The staff of Mary's Mount Primary School have been asked to identify and paste images that may have that reflect each area of LEAD.

These images are being used for creating awareness and promotion of LEAD within our school community. They will continue to be updated. Listed below is how we are currently using our images or how we plan to use our images in the future.

  • Some of the images are on a display board outside our library under headings of each LEAD area.

  • A slide show has been made and shown to the school community at an assembly. Our Principal, Mr Sandro Coniglio then educated the children about LEAD.

  • The images and LEAD information will be played in rotation on our Apple TV in our front office and staff room.

  • We are planning to upload the current slideshow onto our school website. 


Linking LEAD to our Strategic Plan 2014 – 2017

The Plan was designed by board members, P&F executives, students, staff and the Parish Priest. The process of planning took a year to finalise. 

The Key Result areas had been decided when the CEWA strategic direction of LEAD was released. The Key Result areas of our strategic plan were then reviewed and linked to each area of LEAD.

The launch of our plan was presented in May 2014. All people in our community were invited to attend. Our Chairman of the Board, Mr Justin Pavlinovich, spoke about our Commitment and 'The Five Pillars' (p.14). Our Principal, Mr Sandro Coniglio, spoke about 'Our Strategic Structure' (p.4) and the process with which it was written. 

Our AP Mr Clinton Payne spoke about the student’s involvement with identifying with 'The Five Pillars'. A team of Year 6 leaders spoke on each one of the Five Pillars:

  • Christ

  • Wisdom

  • Community

  • Tradition

  • Responsibility

Our Strategic Plan booklet was distributed to each stakeholder of our school community


LEAD Reflection Questions

Our Principal, Mr Sandro Coniglio, has modified LEAD reflections questions and is asking school board members and staff prior to meetings, to reflect on two questions in a LEAD area.

Future focus: The reflection questions will be modified if needed to the student’s level and used as reflection on a daily basis.

Discipleship is our calling; we are committed to deepening our relationship with Jesus.

How are we demonstrating LEAD in our actions in our school community?

Staff have been invited to add any other thoughts to the lists as they arise.​
