CATHERINE MISSON
Principal
Melbourne Girls Grammar School (Vic)

Catherine Misson has always questioned the status quo of educational paradigms, and now she is leading the way by designing school programs, including new ways to imagine the use of time, new roles in schools, and new ways of young people taking control of their learning. She has developed an educational narrative that champions the development of an enterprising mindset, to ensure that children today are being equipped for a digital age in which their experiences of work and wellbeing will be vastly different to those of their parents. Through her establishment of the Centre for Educational Enterprise in 2015, Misson has taken this agenda internationally, and launched the Enterprising Schools Network in 2016 to connect like-minded educators.
