    LIS maintains an inclusive strategic plan with a systematic process of reflection and feedback.
    On 10 and 11 March 2017, a group of 28 participants comprised of LIS students, parents, staff and Board Directors attended a strategic retreat at the school. We discussed the data, shared points of view, challenged perspectives and summarised our thinking about the school's mission, vision, values and parameters for the school. Prior to the discussions a strong meeting protocol and process was established to ensure equal participation. No one voice was greater or lesser than the other. Given the diversity of the group, getting alignment and consensus around big topics like mission and values was no easy task. In fact, a large proportion of the time was spent reviewing, rejecting, re-writing and finally accepting the value statements. Many people felt strong about particular statements and spoke respectfully and with great passion to defend ideas. However, Dr. Andy Page-Smith was able to facilitate the exercise and decision making process with great skill, expertise and respect.
