Changing a culture

Something often missed from school development plans is a strategy for improving the culture.


Culture isn’t really “the way we do things around here”. It’s actually a set of living relationships aligned towards a shared goal.


If we want to change and improve the effectiveness of our schools then we need to do it by developing the relationships of the staff. This will strengthen levels of collaboration, increase motivation and help rekindle purpose in the the school community.


We do this by nurturing the culture on a daily basis. We ask questions like: “What small thing can we do every day to make our school amazing a year from now?”


The ocean is made of drops. Start with those. Not the waves.
