Keynote One: Mark McConville (Principal Toronto High School)

Many HCC staff watched the recent 4 Corners Story on Toronto High School with real interest.  Mark McConville’s keynote will not be a dialogue on Local Schools, Local Decisions; rather, it will an opportunity for all passionate educators to learn about reforming practices, asking the ‘hard questions’ and building the capacity of staff in a leadership role.  Mark will reflect on his experiences as an educator, providing a real insight into contemporary leadership theory, as a classroom teacher, Head Teacher, Deputy Principal and Principal.

This is a journey many teachmeet participants aspire to and we hope that this keynote provides you with additional direction and inspiration.

Keynote Two: Amber Harvey (Student Voice)

How can we discuss future trends and engaging students without hearing from those with the most to gain – students?  Splendour in the Class is delighted to have Amber Harvey, a year 10 student from a Hunter Valley National Partnerships school, provide a view of education that we often do not consider enough.
