Danielle set to become Harvard scholar
Danielle Hall will participate in a new leadership program offered by the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
The Driver Primary School principal will attend The Principals’ Centre in Australia: Leadership for School Excellence course to become acquainted with the knowledge, tactics and tools required to lead “instructional change and accelerate learning for all students”.
The Sydney-based tuition, which will occupy four days in January 2020, is tailored to principals and school leaders from government, independent and Catholic schools throughout Australasia.
“Through the program I will engage in discussion groups, collaborative learning, and reflection to hone my leadership goals,” she said.
“As an early career principal I aim to gain a deeper understanding of the leadership skills needed to set high expectations for instructional quality, including how to continue cultivating a school culture that prioritises learning for all.
“As a principal it is important to lead by example and continue to access learning opportunities that will enhance my practice.
“I will be required to maintain ongoing relationships with the principals in the program, and the Harvard Graduate School of Education, well into the future.
“I am keen to share the innovative work happening at Driver with my counterparts beyond the Territory, and hope this sharing will be reciprocated.”
