Over the last few weeks the Team has been brainstorming & working on a plan for the Term 4 event "Wheeling Wednesdays." Yes you say, that's ages away but its amazing HOW quickly the time evaporates! Plus there is another motive here; our Team will be presenting a workshop at the first ever COR YM Schools' Showcase, so what better way to prepare than to use real practical "stuff?"

Above is the result of the Team brainstorming over a couple of weeks, complete with add-ons (in red!) for today's discussion on proceeding to our plan & timeline. Below, from brainstorming to time frame.

So resulting from the brainstorming, the tentative time frame was then discussed & fine tuned (all those scribbles in red!) Lots of really good discussion emanated today, with the Team freely & clearly enunciating ideas & additions to the plan. There was a definite air of confidence & satisfaction in the result! So proud of you Team!

The idea of using our Wheeling Wednesdays' planning as the basis for the Team's workshopping at the Showcase, came about as a response to time! The thinking goes like this: the Team has been asked to present at the Showcase, the Team was going to be doing Wheeling Wednesdays in Term 4 so why not put the planning efforts together & have two bites of the cherry? The other crucial reason (for me) was that by using the Team's planning for the Term 4 event as the basis for the Term 3 workshop, it had practical application & maybe other Teams might be able to take the plan back to their schools & use/refine for their own event.

Watch this space (late in Term 3) for how the Showcase unfolded!

Thanks for giving us the inside story on your plans for the CoR workshop and your Term 4 event. I have relinked this to the activity on holding regular team meetings as we will allocate points for the term 4 event when it is run, and likewise for the showcase in term 3. I have given you 10 points for details, plus 10 for the team meeting outline.
