ABOUT

Sue's Bio

"I'm here because I want to help schools make sense of the science of wellbeing and how to integrate it into everything they do."

With a diverse professional background across teaching, educational leadership, counselling, coaching, conflict resolution, professional supervision, training, and workplace wellness design, I transform strategic plans and influence school leadership through critical reflection, problem-posing, dialogue, cross-examining the status quo and ultimately, action.    

I have a passion for driving positive and transformational cultural change in schools with a particular interest in the integration of the science of wellbeing into whole school systems, to build individual and collective wellbeing and impact teacher practice.

SUE'S BIO

Bio_Img2.png

Prior to launching Transformative Schools, I spent five years as the inaugural Head of Wellbeing at All Hallows’ School, in Brisbane, where I held strategic responsibility for the design, project planning and implementation of the whole-school wellbeing framework. My approach began with imagination, alignment with context and evidence-based approaches and culminated in a range of student care practices linking wellbeing to successful student outcomes in relation to learning, personal achievement, social competence and emotional resilience. I have presented workshops on my wellbeing design concepts at state and national conferences and was a member of the Positive Education Schools Association (PESA) - QLD Chapter - when it first formed in 2018. In the same year, I was a guest on the ‘Pioneers of Positive Education’ podcast series with Dr Suzy Green. You can listen to it here!

More recently, I have been a guest on the Flourishing at School podcast with Jason van Schie and Tamara Lechner and the Wonders of Wellbeing podcast with Aimee Parkinson.
