Nathalia Learning Community Alliance, Australia

Source – Learning together: The power of cluster-based school improvement, by Maggie Farrar, 2015 (Centre for Strategic Education – Seminar Series 249).

A recent article (Topsfield, 2014) in the Australian daily newspaper, The Age, featured the Nathalia Learning Community Alliance and opened with the words ‘imagine if there was no ideological warfare between public and private schools’. It went on to describe the work of the alliance in Nathalia, a small rural town in northern Victoria, comprising four schools from the Catholic and State sectors and a community population of approximately 3,500 people.
