This resource is aimed at supporting Victorian schools at different stages of their sister school partnerships. This includes schools who want to take the first steps to establish a partnership, those with established partnerships, as well as those with strong and effective sister school partnerships. No matter where your school is on the partnership journey, you will find this material useful for building or enhancing your partnership.
This resource is informed by research commissioned by the Department in 2012 on effective practices in sister school partnerships. It also draws upon the experience of schools that have been successful in building and maintaining meaningful and sustainable partnerships as a school improvement strategy. It includes short case studies of schools’ success stories, highlights some of the obstacles you might encounter when establishing partnerships and strategies you can employ to overcome these obstacles.
