We are pleased and proud to announce the appointment of The Sydney Russell School as our latest Designated OLEVI Centre of Excellence (DOC).

Sydney Russell is a very special place. Buzzing with excitement, this school community is credible, dynamic, aspirational, happy and successful. It is united by a common commitment to providing its students with the currency, character and culture to be truly inspired and achieve great things.

Central to achieving this vision has been Sydney Russell’s partnership with OLEVI. Its leaders fully embrace and role model DR ICE principles and the OLEVI ethos throughout the school. It has developed a deeper understanding of the different OLEVI models and approaches, and their effective and innovative use is evident through the phenomenal impact achieved.

Hearing the emotional stories of their journey and how the programmes have transformed colleagues’ confidence and competence was truly inspirational. As a result, the school is a passionate advocate for OLEVI and is ready, able and willing to open its doors to inspire others.

As a DOC, Sydney Russell has become part of our extended Leadership Team, providing focus, challenge and innovative thinking that will shape and re-shape the OLEVI Alliance in the years to come.

Thank you to Clare, Janis, Amy and the team for your commitment and dedication. We look forward to sharing your future successes with the alliance.

“We are delighted to have become a Designated OLEVI Centre! Our relationship with OLEVI continues to deepen our thinking about teaching, leadership and coaching – DR ICE is at the core of what we do as a school.

We are excited to look towards our future at Sydney Russell School, with OLEVI, centring on empowerment and growth of our learning community.”

Clare Cross, Vice Principal, The Sydney Russell School
