The international network of school principals
For the past ten years, school principals, aware of their special responsibility since the rscj are no longer present in their institutions, have become accustomed to meeting at regular intervals.
In Europe, in Asia-Australia-New Zealand (“Asia-ANZ”), continental conferences alternate with global conferences, with a steady increase in participation. The4th conference Taipei (Taiwan) in October 2011 hosted 60 delegates from around the world, the5th conference in Mexico in October 2015 over 120. General chapters are called, deepening the sense of mission and their knowledge of the charism of St. Madeleine Sophie Barat are part of their study topics :
- « Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation » in Taiwan in 2011 (World Conference),
- « The educational intuition of Madeleine Sophie Barat » In Dublin in 2013 (European Conference),
- « Education for Peace » in Seoul in 2014 (Asia-ANZ Area Conference),
- « Facing the complexity of the world, an inner journey » in Mexico City in 2015 (World Conference),
- « The Mission and the Heart » at Placeres (Spain) in 2017 (European Conference),
- « The calls of the 2016 General Chapter » in Sydney in 2018 (Conference Asia-ANZ Area),
There is no hierarchy in the networks that have been formed. The meetings are generally prepared by a school and the rscj of his province. Conferences are given by nuns or lay experts, after which everyone brings their eyes and ideas to workshops. A summary document is then drafted.
The6th World International Conference of Principals will be held in Miami in April 2020.
