The Leadership Exchange – The Meeting Group for Educators
The Leadership Exchange is a network group for leaders and educators in school across all systems.
The event is held in Brighton, Victoria, Week 6 Wednesday every term, 6.00 – 8.30pm.
We are proud and excited to share that this group has now been running for 2 years.
Its purpose is to:
- assist educators to make real connections with like-minds and assist collegiate relationships to flourish across schools and across sectors.
- provide a forum for ideas to be shared, the opportunity to public speak in a more intimate forum and for thought leadership to be developed.
- learn more about the current educational landscape, to be informed and to learn from each other and those more experienced.
- develop great leaders of education.
Term 1 : Wednesday 6 March
Peter Ellis – Principal of Templestowe College – Breaking the Assumptions about what Education Should Look Like
There are many assumptions made around what education should look like. Many of these are left over from an industrial model of education which no longer serves a relevant purpose. At TC we have spent the last 8 years breaking down these assumptions to create a school that is engaging and relevant to the world we live in now. A “Yes is the Default” rule, one person policy, removal of year levels, an entrepreneurial mindset, authentic learning and many other innovations have led to a school that has every student on an individualised learning plan meeting their own educational needs. Hear about the how the assumptions are broken with real examples showing students authentic learning.
The second speaker is currently being finalised.
Term 2: Wednesday 29 May
Peter Cavanagh – St Paul’s Anglican Grammar – Trust Mapping
I met Peter at the AHISA Conference, Adelaide in 2016 and was so impressed with the program he had been working on at St Paul’s Anglican Grammar, Warragul. Trust Mapping gives teachers metrics on trust within cohorts to pre-empt bullying and to be proactive in taking care of students who are getting left out by their peers. Peter has now taken Trust Mapping to 5 continents, 21 campuses, 92 classes and 2387 students, all while continuing his work at St Paul’s.
Jonathan Walter, Principal, Woodleigh School – reinventing education for wellbeing.

Scheduling time to connect with other professionals and engage in critical conversations about challenges to navigate and emerging opportunity, is arguably more important than ever before.
