Every school needs to address its ongoing viability as part of good governance. Curriculum options, class sizes, new and heritage facilities, operational options and establishing a niche market are some of the issues taken into consideration.

There will be a tour on each day that provide a quick look at a range of Adelaide schools that have taken action to ensure they stay viable in a competitive market. Each has been in operation for many years but has evolved to meet 21st Century expectations. Each tour will provide an outline of the issues arising and actions taken and a quick glimpse of recent work done in a range of established schools. Some have amalgamated, most have both new and heritage buildings, some are co-educational, others are single sex.

Early learning has been identified as a community need, as has health and fitness, and performing arts that managed as business units and library resource centres that are shared with the community. Due to the range of schools to be visited in a short time there will be no detailed description or discussion at the site but there will be opportunities to discuss and debate on the bus or on return to the conference venue.

On this tour we will take in a number of sites in Adelaide’s inner eastern suburb and north-eastern suburbs.

Limited numbers each day. Bookings essential.
