There are many things that schools can do to improve learning opportunities and outcomes for their students. Increasingly schools are choosing to look beyond their gates to connect with other groups in their neighbourhood. Businesses, not-for-profit organisations, philanthropic organisations and others are also looking to connect with schools for mutual benefits. Whether you are the local real estate agent, someone from Rotary, a TAFE teacher, a university lecturer, a pre-school parent, a football club president, a resident in an elderly citizens’ home, or from another community group and wanting to share resources and ideas with a local school, there are plenty of opportunities for collaboration to improve student outcomes. This presentation looks at the benefits of collaborating and offers research evidence and practical tips for developing strong and productive school–community relationships that ultimately support better outcomes for students.
