This paper illustrates how schools can change when funds are available to assist schools and communities to implement appropriate and effective professional development, to establish partnerships between school and community, to revise teaching approaches and curriculum, to overcome disadvantage, and to value family and Aboriginal cultural heritage. Needless-to-say, the people involved and their planning are critical for transformation. The schools were in a Smarter Stronger Learning Community so they supported each other across schools but other programs in the various schools were also important in achieving change.
