A School For Tomorrow

Game Changers

In a School for tomorrow. we want to motivate each other as evidence-based champions of high performance and systems that improve outcomes for all learners. We need to commit to our calling, bring together the compelling narrative, describe and measure our performance, and define the narrative and role community of inquiry and practice that will help everyone to work vocationally and find their calling by asking the question: whose am I? 

A SCHOOL FOR TOMORROW

A School for tomorrow is equipped with the education, culture, leadership and performance to develop the character, competencies and wellness that empower students on The Pathway To Excellence to acquire the adaptive expertise and self-efficacy required for them to thrive in their world. Educators in this community of inquiry and practice are informed by The Way and led by Game Changers...

HIGH PERFORMANCE CULTURE

Schools that are seriously committed to become great schools of character need to do more than simply replicate solid performance in the basic foundations of schooling. They must identify the “secret sauce” of high-performance culture, foster the leadership to perpetuate it, re- engineer structures and systems so that it becomes embedded, and direct the efforts of its faculty into learning and teaching that fundamentally addresses the requirements of 21C character and competency in a deliberate, targeted and intentional fashion...

A SCHOOL FOR TOMORROW

An Education to Learn

In a School for tomorrow we want to influence a research-driven community of inquiry and practice to find a way to educate students to learn the character, competency and wellness required to thrive in our world. This community needs to cultivate a growth mindset, empower learners, and personalise learning so that all can learn the self-awareness of knowing themselves through asking: who am I?...

Standards for High Performance Culture in Schools

Leading schools towards becoming schools of character must involve aspirational rather than restrictive or compliance-driven standards that meet stakeholder expectations for a whole education. We must understand school culture and climate, leading an educational program, teacher effectiveness, the student educational experience, strategic and operational alignment, and teacher professionalism...

THE Culture to Live

In a School for tomorrow we want to inspire a growth-minded community of inquiry and practice to build a disposition for change, align decisions standards, and share in a language for learning that contribute to the progress and wellness of all. This enables all to grow to become the people they need to be and to live well in relationships built by earning their places through asking the question: where do I fit in?...

HIGH PERFORMANCE CULTURE

Organisational Maturity and Cultural Competency in a High-Performance School

Schools and the teachers in them are strategically and operationally engaged in a continuous process of supporting the learning of children while they grow into their adulthood. This necessarily and naturally involves helping them to master the processes of change that are normal (and sometimes abnormal) in their lives...

A SCHOOL FOR TOMORROW

The Strategy to Lead

Leading is about becoming a servant who goes on a journey from me to you to us through asking the question: how can I best serve others? Leading in a school community begins with understanding the mission and its tasks, developing a shared vision for how strategic learning capacity might be increased, and answering the questions that will help the school make the right choices about its future...

HIGH PERFORMANCE CULTURE

Cultural Leadership at a Strategic Level

In creating the conditions by which we might help the hearts and heads of our staff to be inclined towards the important work of continually improving outcomes for students, we need to help them to improve their own competencies along the way. The inspiration for change will be modelled at first, but it needs to become normalised within the individual learning journey of each teacher along the way through their explicit understanding of their purpose, philosophy and practice, as well as their plan for ongoing growth and development...
