How do you change the culture of a school - Innovating to enhance the engagement of students ?
At the heart of any contemporary School should be the ability and willingness to engage students and the local community in a meaningful and purposeful manner.
In 2017 it was identified that my current school required significant transformation. A new Principal was appointed in mid 2017 and subsequently the appointment of a Vice Principal in 2018.
This presentation highlights the journey of the College in reinventing its self as a school since then and the considerable success experienced in a very short time. The presentation includes:
• Leading effective change in shifting a school’s culture
• Reengaging a school community
• Providing a point/s of difference as a school
• Embracing innovation and creativity in bringing about significant pedagogical change and enhancing teacher growth
• New Pathways for students
• Engaging students, enhancing life-long learning and meeting 21st Century needs
• Building community, industry and educational partnerships

This presentation, accompanied by video, highlights specific models of teaching and learning pedagogical practice including an alternative Timetable model, Project Based Learning, student voice and gamification in the classroom. Additionally it will outline the change management processes utilised by the College to bring about significant school improvement.
