    Give students more opportunities to learn and be inquisitive: self-directed learning & projects, more partnerships with other communities (local, interstate, statewide communities, overseas, etc.) and forming stronger bonds with leadership teams and the community. Invest in new and innovative technologies, advancements and methods.

      Very much agree with the point about teaching students to be discerning users of technology and information presenting via various mediums.

    High Expectations - High resultsRaise the bar in all we do - teach students to take risks, to fail, to pick themselves up, brush themselves off and do it all over again. To look for real solutions at local level -so they will develop a global mindset to know that collectively much can be achieved. Give them the learning experiences they deserve - good enough is not good enough- excellent is better.

    allow more teacher flexibility and "freedom" to allow for new data/students/resources to be used and to use relevant and up to date resources. simplify and lighten up the processes in place so teachers spend less time on paperwork and more on what they are paid for ?

    create teaching programs that are interesting, creative and engaging: that ignite curiosity and use real world examples to show purpose and authenticity. Don't allow ourselves to become bogged down by curricula imposed by bureaucrats that overwhelm students

    Practice resilience, not simply talk about the need to be resilient.Help them to fail "successfully".Equip them with the skills of critical thinking so that they are able to respond to whatever comes their way in the future.Enable and encourage them to be proud and purposeful citizens.

    Successful learning will lead to active global citizenship. Successful learning is engaging, resourceful, critical, challenging and aspirational. Unrealistic accountability demands by governments, authorities and systems have resulted in little time for teachers and leaders to think critically and creatively. If teachers aren't encouraged and resourced to think critically and creatively, we will never set the example that children need to witness.

    By supporting Teachers, Principals and Assistant Principals in their professional development and cutting down on red tape.Teachers are spending too much time on administrative demands which should be left with administrative staff which in turn allows teachers to better support students.Students will become better learners when there is a rich culture of learning and a positive atmosphere in the classroom.

    The most valued characteristics in business are ethics and morals. Values education is the most important base for preparing our children for the future. Society often pushes financial success but what should be emphasised is the values a person lives and works through. These are the true secrets to success in life.
