Leadership Conference Successful
It was August 2006 when the commitments were made between the Catholic Diocese of Nsukka, Nigeria partnered with the Archdiocese of Chicago to establish a 21st Century Schools System under the auspices of the Diocese. Over 150 educators participated in this 2013 Leadership Conference. They heard the reports of the work done by the fall delegation to Chicago. Retelling the story of the partnership helped the participants in this new larger conference experience their own place in the dream. On the final day the work was done in deanery groups. As the deaneries shared goals for the next 5 months of school, they included planting trees on school sites that lack shade and beauty during the upcoming rainy season. They also will work to form education committees at the deanery level with representatives on the diocesan education committee in order to help train more teachers into the diocesan goals, vision, mission, motto statements.
