Concord Golf Club, 190 Majors Bay Road, Concord

During the evening, there will be a presentation by our distinguished speaker Cheryl Lacey. The Guild will also honour Fellowships of the Guild to some very worthy colleagues on the evening.

Schools are in the business of providing a service – education – and while every school is led by a Principal, not all are principled in the same manner. While reports indicate that Principals and schools are coming under increased pressure, what is not reported are the opportunities Principals have to ensure a world leading education is offered. In this presentation, Cheryl challenges her audience to believe in the power of a principled Principal and provides a balanced pathway for effecting immediate change. It’s optimistic, it’s powerful and above all – possible.


Presenter:

Cheryl Lacey is a mum, educationist, speaker and author, and highly respected in her approach to agitating for change in Australian education. In Cheryl’s latest book, Marching Schools Forward, she challenges some of the basic concepts that underpin education and makes no apology for what are, sometimes, controversial observations. Cheryl has worked in all sectors of education from early-childhood to tertiary and in independent, denominational and government schools. Cheryl is recognised internationally for her work and continues in her quest for a world-class education for all Australians
