Leading change for schools undergoing major property projects is complex, rewarding and challenging. In this pānui Ōwairaka District School leaders share their strategies and tips for leading staff through change, with a focus on collaborative teaching approaches. 

As leaders understanding leading change processes and practices begins with our own personal growth journey. Learn more about this by reading the article, ‘Know Thyself’ by Carolyn Marino (Ringa Whao, and previously Principal of Westmere Primary School). 

In post-earthquake Christchurch the majority of schools underwent significant transformation. In this pānui we introduce you to the evidence based and very readable book, Leading Sustainable Change for school leaders.
