PCSchool is very pleased to have two innovative and forward-thinking principals from high performing schools as our key note speakers at this years conference.
Sheryll Offner, Principal of Selwyn College, will be our Key Note Speaker on day one. Sheryll will be sharing with us how the rigorous collection and accessible use of data has transformed Selwyn College from a low ebb in 2008 to the high performing school it is today. Sheryll will discuss how, with the use of check and connect strategies, mentors are able to monitor and encourage student focus on co-curricular goals, school awards, and course selection. As a result students at Selwyn College are achieving academic success and becoming confident lifelong learners.
Our day two Key Note Speaker will be Wayne Buckland, Principal of Bream Bay College, and a ‘Flagship School’ for our software. Wayne is often the first of our users to put his hand up and try new features or who pushes our programmers to come up with inventive solutions for schools to better use collected data. Wayne will be sharing how looking outside the square for solutions to provide better evidence-based data has helped Bream Bay College meet the needs of their diverse school community.
For the IT-minded we have an industry IT professional leader discussing security both within school networks and across the cloud. They will discuss better ways to secure your school’s sensitive data at rest and in transit.
PCSchool encourages our schools to send at least one staff member to our annual conference where new program features will be showcased and information on our integration partners will be shared. Most importantly attendees will get exposure to other PCSchool users enabling them to share experiences and challenges with like-minded people.
