Alumni Hub

Great school leaders create conditions that enable both outstanding education and successful social outcomes for all students.

The ‘SVA Bright Spots Schools Connection’ was established in 2013 as a collaborative network of high-performing and developing school leaders across Australia, delivering exceptional results in schools located in challenged communities. Schools engaged in the program, our ‘bright spots’, became Connection alumni when they had completed their formal multi-year partnerships.

All schools who have participated in The Connection are eligible to join the Alumni Hub to actively continue their learning and engagement. Our Alumni Hub maintains the opportunities of connection to support the continued growth in collective efficacy alongside schools’ individual projects undertaken over their partnership.

In 2020, the Alumni Hub brings schools across New South Wales, South Australia and Victoria:

Auburn West Public School
Berala Public School
Blairmount Public School
Casula High School
Curran Public School
Elderslie Public School
Flinders View Primary School
Granville East Public School
Guise Public School
Hilltop Road Public School
Hoxton Park Public School
Prospect North Primary School
Sunshine Secondary College
Stirling North Primary School
Victor Harbor Primary School

The Alumni Hub enables ongoing engagement of Connection schools in our collaborative network model, supporting the development of best practice to be shared across the system. The Alumni Hub facilitates sharing of prior experience and learnings from the Alumni leaders to other educators within the system. This will build the capacity of both developing and emerging school leaders across communities, resulting in improved student outcomes in and beyond their own ‘bright spots’ schools.
