KEYNOTES

Students of today will work in communities of tomorrow where they will need to make decisions that are inclusive of diverse perspectives and act on issues that transcend traditional boundaries. They will need the skills to work in communities across different cultures and to solve complex problems that may not have simple solutions. Our collective responsibility is to create diverse and global communities with our students, and to prepare them for the world of tomorrow, where they equipped to challenge bias, develop shared learning and connect with multiple perspectives.

Holding strong to the belief that educational change comes from finding the green shoots of innovation, sharing experiences, and collaborating to amplify the impact of initiatives, this leadership presentation takes you on a journey, a voyage around the world, an adventure. Walk away with a new appreciation for different cultures, an excitement for the future of education and a renewed passion for our young people.

** Suitable for student audiences**

We (that’s the big ‘Human We’) are responsible to ensure that not only our immediate environments, the current schools we find ourselves in are fit for purpose but to recognise we are all part something bigger. It is collectively and that we can co-create a more human centered education system, rich in fulfilment, joy, meaning and belonging – where not only where  every young person feels more connected but also our staff feel empowered in the work they do.
