Values Education Good Practice Schools Project – Stage 1 Clusters

The Values Education Good Practice Schools Project – Stage 1 (2005–2006)

The Values Education Good Practice Schools Project – Stage 1 (VEGPSP) involved the funding by the Australian Government of 26 selected clusters of schools from around Australia to design, implement and evaluate quality projects in values education which reflect and utilise the National Framework for Values Education in Australian Schools in local contexts.

The outcomes and learnings from these 26 cluster projects has been disseminated to the wider education community to foster better values education practice in all schools.

Successful clusters and final reports

On Monday, 2 May 2005 the Australian Government announced the 26 successful schools and clusters to participate in the Values Education Good Practice Schools Project – Stage 1. The projects were conducted from May 2005 to April 2006. The successful cluster projects appear below with the name of the lead school in bold. School clusters developed case studies of their work which informed the development of the final report. For a more detailed description of the projects and a link to the final report for each click on the name of the cluster.
