- The information brochure, which served to generate significant interest in the Great Schools Network as well as the School Governance Network
- The 'What is the Great Schools Network?' PowerPoint, which included feedback from schools and a series of questions pertaining to the key issues and challenges in developing the GSN
- Stakeholders’ roundtable report (2 October 2014). The participants’ ideas and suggestions were organised around ten key themes, which we continue to use to assess progress
- The schools’ forum agenda, as an example of how our engagement with stakeholders has been structured
- The schools’ forum report. Four key issues emerged in the forum (held on 16 December 2014) as the specific foci for developing the GSN. The report includes the list of attendees. About seventy principals, teachers, school council and board members, parents and students as well as stakeholder groups – from across the three sectors – took part, a phenomenal mix of people that reveals the immense potential.
An amazing journey that has served to highlight three things that, taken together, make the GSN a tad unique:
- 1.Cross-sectoral, with tremendous support for developing better ways to collaborate within and across the government, Catholic and independent school sectors
- 2.Multi-stakeholder. The pivotal importance of developing ever-stronger learning partnerships among principals, teachers, parents, students and the community
- 3.Grass-roots based. Principals and other school community members have obviously valued the idea of an open network that is driven and co-owned by schools.
