DHS Year End KP & TLC Retreat 2018
We were privileged to convene at Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi Airport for this year’s DHS Year End KP & TLC Retreat, where Key Personnel and Senior Teachers had a comfortable environment to bond and brainstorm the Strategic Objectives and Strategic Initiatives that will direct us in how we will nurture the Dunmanian DNA.
Mr Low set the context by reminding us that we are to equip Dunmanians with skills to navigate the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world characterised by shifting expectations with the emergence of the new Generation Edge. We are in a season of transition and can expect to experience messiness and discomfort in the process, however, we should be bold and dream big as we formulate strategic thrusts to fit future needs. Thereafter, we consolidated the Strategic Objectives and corresponding Strategic Initiatives in our groups, and shared our respective Strategic Map with everyone.
On top of this, meaningful team bonding games were played, such as the ‘Zoom’ and ‘Re-zoom’ picture book activity and ‘The Game of Impossibility?’. They stressed the importance of teamwork and communication in problem solving, taking different perspectives and how pre-conceive notions can hinder us in the problem solving process.
It was a fruitful retreat that left us recharged and optimistic of our future plans for Dunman High School.
