Well, it’s been an interesting journey from around 2004 when the LIPS – Leaders in Public Schools concept kicked off as an email listserv which sought to emulate the sharing which had been seen on the NSW Primary Principals’ Association PASHN (Principals’ Association Self Help Network) which had been set up in Nov 2002.

Along the way, a blog format was seen as a better way to go and the blog has been used to post all sorts of things which have hopefully been of use to educators and others along the way.
A healthy aspect of our ability to post ideas is that not everybody will agree, and it has been good sometimes to see some spirited exchanges of ideas in the comments and elsewhere.
Now, as we enter 2012, almost 10 years since the launch of PASHN, and after a number of roles within Public Education, and some of the evolution which occurs as a natural consequence of time, it seems a good time to draw this blog to a close.
You can still access it here, and I hope that you might still enjoy some of the posts. I will continue to promote concepts like the need to move from ‘School Planning’ to ‘Planning School’ and certainly the efficacy of an approach which is ‘Tight, Loose, Tight.’
If you’re interested in keeping track of what I’m up to you can also check out my main web portal page at PRYORCOMMITMENT.COM and follow the various links from there to writing and thoughts at PEBBLES IN THE POOL.
But, for now, these LIPS are sealed.
