The "Everything else" bit discussion was enriched by a lively diversion into the launch of the Kiwi Leadership for Principals initiative by the Minister for Education Chris Carter
The term "Kiwi leadership" is used in this draft to describe an approach to school principalship that is unique to New Zealand. At the heart of the Kiwi leadership work is a clear focus on how we can work together to improve educational outcomes for all our young people.

The MoE's Draft document - Kiwi Leadership for Principals was shared with the group.
