The Stronger Smarter Philosophy

The Stronger Smarter philosophy honours a positive sense of cultural identity, acknowledges and embraces positive community leadership, enabling innovative and dynamic approaches and processes that are anchored by high expectations relationships. High expectations relationships honour the humanity of others, and in so doing, acknowledge one’s strengths, capacity and human right to emancipatory opportunity.


The Stronger Smarter Meta strategies

Acknowledging and embracing Indigenous leadership in schools and school communities;

‘High expectations’ leadership to ensure ‘high expectations’ classrooms, with ‘high expectations’ teacher/student relationships;

Innovative and dynamic school models in complex social and cultural contexts;

Innovative and dynamic school staffing models in schools facing complex challenges.
