Anne Coster describes how ongoing professional learning led to the development of her project for the National Aspiring Principals Programme. The student leadership project was what Anne describes as the “logical conclusion” of several years of intensive curriculum implementation and review.

Exploration of the curriculum values, principles, and key competencies was followed up by a crosscurricular focus on pedagogy. Teachers worked across learning areas to observe different contexts and teaching styles. This willingness to collaborate led to a culture of trust among the staff and a paradigm shift in the relationship between teachers and students. The staff realized their inquiry into practice would not be complete without the student voice.
