Abstract

The past decade has seen the emergence of a range of exciting models for school improvement. But many teachers and principals remain unconvinced of their worth, questioning whether they can be sustained in the face of challenges such as constant staff turnover, inconsistent supervisor expectations, and seemingly cataclysmic systemic priorities. Added to that is the 'new broom principal' mind-set- 'I'm the new broom, sent here to sweep the place clean. I'll let you know when I have decided what is best for you and how to proceed from there.'
Thus, we take the clear position that whatever successes are achieved must be sustained if they are to have significant educational value. But how, one might ask, are the processes that result in enhanced school outcomes most successfully consolidated in a school's structure and culture? As a first step in answering this critically important question, we look inside the workings of a school where hard-earned successes were indeed embedded for the
benefit of future generations of students and teachers.
