Ravenswood School for Girls named innovative school

St Leonards, NSW (January 6, 2020) - A Gordon-based school has just been recognised in a prestigious list of the top schools in Australia.

Ravenswood School for Girls has been included in The Educator’s fifth annual Innovative Schools report, spotlighting 44 schools at the cutting edge of change and innovation in Australian K-12 education.

The Educator would like to congratulate the winners on making the Innovative Schools 2019 list,” says Editor Brett Henebery. “The inspirational programs and initiatives showcased in the report prove that quality teaching is alive and well in Australian schools,” Henebery said. “It should be noted that the report only offers a small snapshot of the ground-breaking work being done in these schools to improve the educational outcomes and wellbeing of Australia’s young people.”

Ravenswood School for Girls is an educational pioneer across a variety of domains, with a particularly groundbreaking approach in the areas of Positive Education and STEM, including a leading-edge program that combines the two in dynamic and engaging ways. In 2019, their Principal Mrs Anne Johnstone, was the only woman in the world to be recognised among just five global educational leaders, for her pioneering work, contribution and leadership in Positive Education by the University of Pennsylvania and the Eisenhower Fellowship Trust. In another world-first, a group of Year 10 Ravenswood students and staff are collaborating with Professor Seligman on a Positive Education English curriculum program, called Our Story, that will not only enhance the students’ wellbeing and academic development but collect valuable data, with the potential to inform the work of Positive Education schools globally. In 2020, Ravenswood will open a leading-edge Senior Learning Centre, designed to facilitate powerful 21st Century teaching and learning experiences.
