Principal advisory group to lift student outcomes

Principals from 10 NSW public schools have met, with the goal of driving improvement in schools across the state.

The Ambassador Schools Principal Advisory Group was formed to provide advice on evidence-based ways of lifting student outcomes.

NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet said the group would provide an ongoing roundtable to discuss issues affecting public schools.

“The group will share their insights, ideas and advice to have a direct, positive impact on education policies,” Perrottet said.

Minister for Education and Early Learning Sarah Mitchell said the principals were from the Ambassador Schools program, which identifies schools performing above and beyond other similar schools.

“The aim of the program is to study the effective practices these schools have in place and see how they can be scaled up across the state,” she said.

“These leading schools represent a diverse mix of city and regional schools, both primary and secondary.

“It was great to hear from these dynamic educators yesterday and I look forward to chairing the group and learning from their wide-ranging experiences.”

The Advisory Group will meet with the Minister quarterly over the next two years. The 10 Ambassador Schools are:

  • Millthorpe Public School;
  • Fairvale High School;
  • Auburn North Public School;
  • Bonnyrigg Heights Public School;
  • Huntingdon Public School;
  • Macarthur Girls High School;
  • Charlestown South Public School;
  • Cabramatta High School;
  • Mathoura Public School.
