Feedback from past participants:

What was the most valuable aspect of the
Heads’ Retreat for you? 

"Relaxing and the collaboration with the very talented Heads within FCIS."
"Connecting, commiserating and celebrating with colleagues!!"
"The workshop topics were just what we need as heads to support our school communities and lead with confidence. The time to connect and relax with colleagues is invaluable!"
"Reconnecting (in person!) after this crazy year was desperately needed and gave me the motivation to start the 2021-2022 school year on a positive note!"

"Being able to speak with other HOS and having so much support from FCIS."
