Ray Ebert, Living Faith Lutheran Primary School
Ray Ebert is a well-rounded lifelong learner whose leadership has made Living Faith Lutheran Primary School a go-to place to learn about educational innovation and change management processes, and to witness innovative architectural design.
Ebert steered the development of a strategic drive, which as opposed to a strategic plan or strategic intent, is aspirational and dynamic, stirring up dialogue and action to agitate, be disruptive, and inspire innovation. Under Ebert leadership, a new approach to mathematics has been developed, based on the work of Stanford University’s Jo Boaler. This includes a magnificently-orchestrated approach to professional learning which includes, amongst other things, all teachers completing a Stanford University course. In the past 12 months, Ebert has also been involved in building plans for a new and innovative junior primary precinct and the installation of an adventure playground, rustic outback playground, and a retreat playground.
