I hope you are well and enjoying the mid-year break.
News for Circle Schools and Trainers
As many already know we have a special arrangement with St Lukeâ€™s Innovative Resources so all Registered Circle Solutions schools and trainers have a 20% discount on all their products. Some people have had a bit of a struggle getting this so St. Lukeâ€™s have set up the following process:
Circle Solutions Facebook Group
This is the link to the new Facebook group for Circle Solutions.
- On their website St. Lukeâ€™s have a section where people can join up as members. Standard members receive 10% discount and can order through the website. They see a history of purchases when they log in to make a new one.
- On the member application form, St Lukeâ€™s have added a drop down box asking if the applicant is "A Sue Roffey Circle Solutions School" If you select that box, St Lukeâ€™s will confirm with our website list that you are registered and set you up as a Gold member, and you will receive the 20% discount. Then every time you log in you can order items at the discounted rate and hopefully there will be no further confusion!
Please put up any ideas / experiences in Circles worth sharing with others. I have just put up some ideas for role play scenarios. You have to join before you can post but you just click on the "Join" button on the page - easy!
Circle Solutions Introductory Days
Linda Capuozzolo has kindly agreed to run on my behalf an Intro at Western Sydney University on July 21st for the Education Knowledge Network. Linda has been instrumental in helping many NSW Western Sydney schools get on board with Circles. This is the link with details and how to register.
Rebecca Kershaw is the person to contact if this is tricky: 02 4736 0439
As you know I am currently in the UK and in my absence Ali Palmer and Frances Totney from Growing Great Schools will be running the following Circle Solutions Intros open to all! Please do recommend to colleagues and other schools

We do not as yet have a Circle Trainer course organised but I will let people know as soon as we have a date and place
I am going to be in Hong Kong the week beginning August 15th and in Singapore week beginning 10th November so if you are interested in meeting up to discuss future work on wellbeing let me know. Wonâ€™t have much spare time but a bit! I am back in Australia mid January until mid April 2017.
We are still trying to work out the best way of running our Strengths, Circles and SEL conference Friday March 3 and Saturday March 4 next year. If you can offer a venue for around 150 people let us know. And would you mind if it was out of Sydney? Cairns for instance! All thoughts welcome! If we donâ€™t hear from anyone we will know it is not worth doing!
All the very best for term 3 and thanks for all you do.
Please pass this newsletter on if you think others may be interested - many thanks.
