Stronger Smarter Leadership to create high expectations, excellence oriented school cultures

“…if we believe in young children, we give them licence to believe in themselves. And when young children believe they can be stronger and smarter, that brightens the future in very honourable ways.”
Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Pursuing high expectations for Indigenous Education in Australia

The Stronger Smarter Institute is committed to changing the tide of low expectations in Indigenous education in Australia. The Institute works with school and community leaders in pursuit of high expectations and high performance school cultures. Many schools across the country have made significant inroads and laid solid foundations in the creation of Stronger Smarter inclusive, strength based school cultures.

Transformation through Leadership

There exists in Australia, as does in other parts of the world, an urgent need for quality leadership in schools. Nowhere is this more imperative than within marginalised and resource-poor communities. Within the education system many children struggle against a culture of low expectations and stifled perceptions of who they are. Their self-esteem, achievements and ambitions can be, and so often are, deeply corroded. Attaining excellence in learning for all children may require significant school community transformation, which is essentially about shifting and renewing school cultures.
Our approach is founded on belief and experience that any group of people usually already holds the collective knowledge and wisdom to successfully meet the complex challenges they face. Successful use of this knowledge and wisdom requires deep listening, reflection, collective sense-making and decision-making processes. Engoori offers such a set of collaborative leadership processes.
