Every year, we give principals something very special - a wooden helicopter.
Part of the Strategic Leadership for Principals Programme celebrations, the helicopter is a reminder of the lessons learned throughout the year. Taking a step back from the day-to-day, thinking about the big picture and being aware of what a leader does and does not need to be directly involved in - that’s the helicopter view we try to develop and instill.
They’re carefully crafted, and always appreciated – we have seen many a wooden helicopter in the background of some our recent Zoom calls with principals!
But where exactly do they come from? Who makes this fleet of hand-crafted helicopters? The answer is Tony Williams from Northland – and we’ve got the details on how he makes them.
