Leading Learning 4 All
On April 3rd 2017 Thornlie Senior High School will host the Western Australian launch of the new leadership tool Leading Learning 4 All. This follows the successful national launch in Canberra on February 28thth 2017, with Senator Simon Birmingham, the Federal Minister of Education and Training.
Working in collaboration with school leaders across Australia and drawing on the expert counsel of its international partners, the Leading Learning 4 All website is a new leadership tool for school practitioners to further enhance inclusive education in Australia.
The Leading Learning 4 All initiative has the potential to influence practice here in Australia as well as overseas. It is a new interactive tool reflecting the good work that is happening in Australian schools and seeking to be a starter kit for growth. Leading Learning 4 All embraces the complexity of meeting the learning needs of every student, in every Australian school, every day.”
