The Real Story

The Real Story

The “Future Schools Alliance” project was initiated out of a desire to expand and combine the established collaborations of the NS5, KSP and Connected Communities. It sought to bring together urban city schools with remote, regional schools AND bridge the divide between primary and secondary settings.

This may be seen as attempting the impossible!

The project succeeded in engaging Principals and aspiring leaders from each of these settings in powerful and sustainable learning projects. These projects were generated by the participants at our residential conference and, as such, were able to be deeply embedded in the various school settings.

  • Getting Started

    Starting with a residential planning workshop was a deliberate strategy to bring together leaders from seventeen very diverse school settings and plan a number of learning experiences which could continue beyond the conference and formulate our project and product. »

  • The Design Process

    We knew just how powerful The Design Process could be to build collaboration and a collective sense of ownership for innovative ideas and projects amongst a group of people. »

  • Projects

    A number of key projects emerged from the residential planning workshop. Over the course of the following two terms, these projects continued to evolve and develop. »
