The Heads of Independent Co-Educational Schools meet each term.
The aims of our collaboration are:
The HICES Deputies Network is a forum for Deputies to meet and discuss professional matters in a collegial environment. Meetings are held each term and are hosted at schools within the HICES network.
Agendas are designed to canvas issues relevant to the organisational, managerial and strategic work of our deputies. Guest speakers from professional organisations and peak bodies are invited to present to the group. Host schools often provide insight into their current practices in pedagogy, the development of their school environment, compliance matters, school structures, student welfare and management.
Attendees meet socially for dinner ahead of meetings to enjoy the camaraderie of the shared experience of being a deputy.
The HICES Pastoral Care network equips and supports Pastoral Care leaders, emerging leaders and staff working in student wellbeing.
The meetings provide a network of professional and collegial support, enhance the capacity of staff working in student wellbeing roles and offer professional development specific to the areas of need in this diverse field.
All Pastoral Care/Student Wellbeing Leaders, Heads of House, Year Co-ordinators are welcome to attend. There are three meetings per year, each hosted by various schools.
The HICES Music Steering Committee facilitates HICES Music events and activities with a focus on the organisation of the 2023 HICES Music Festival.
The Music Steering Committee is comprised of a team of 6 music educators from HICES schools who meet once per term.
The Committee makes decisions regarding elements of the direction of and organisation for HICES Music Events, including the annual HICES Music Festival.
The HICES Sports Convenors oversee all Junior School sporting arrangements for HICES schools that use HICES as a pathway to CIS. In addition, they represent HICES on the CIS Management Committee.
Our Sports Convenors are passionate sports advocates and they do a fantastic job of ensuring the smooth organisation and operation of all our sporting carnivals, trials and gala days.
HICES sporting pathways include swimming, cross country, athletics, football, soccer, netball and tennis.
