Local principal sharing advice for success

PRINCIPALS from 10 leading public schools met for the first time as part of a ground-breaking advisory group to help drive school excellence and improvement across the State.

Among those was Auburn North Public principal Mark Harris, who shared their insights, ideas and advice to have a direct, positive impact on education policies, as part of the Ambassador Schools Principal Advisory Group.
The group will provide an ongoing roundtable to discuss issues affecting public schools and evidence based ways of lifting student outcomes.
Minister for Education and Early Learning, Sarah Mitchell, says the principals are from the Ambassador Schools program, which identifies schools performing above and beyond other similar schools.
“The aim of the program is to study the effective practices these schools have in place and see how they can be scaled up across the State,” Ms Mitchell said.
The Advisory Group will meet with the Minister quarterly over the next two years.
