Joy presents on Leadership in Rome

Mrs Joy Bedford, Principal of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart College (OLSH), Enfield presented to the international gathering of educators at the Educating for Today and Tomorrow: A Renewing Passion International Conference in Rome this week.
Joy was one of 3 international speakers invited to share their school experiences where Catholic identity was richly embedded in complex circumstances. OLSH's multi faith community contributes to this contemporary understanding and appreciation of Catholic identity.
Joy said that when each girl and her family have a deep connection and relationship to the college and to the staff, matters that can be seen as problems become everyday moments to address, just ordinary matters and opportunities rather than cultural divisions.
After Joy's address she was besieged by other participants seeking contact details, photos and advice! Clearly Joy's leadership with her staff is something of a light house for others in similar complex schooling situations.
