St Hilda’s School is an Anglican all girls’ school in Gold Coast, Australia. It has a history of close to 100 years, initially as a finishing school for girls but in the more recent decades has developed to become a school which provides holistic education for girls with focus on academic excellence. The new leader led a partially new leadership team to regenerate the teaching practices at the School and provides the teachers, students and parents the opportunity to participate in the newly established vibrant learning community through professional dialogues and role-modelling to change the mindset of teachers, students and parents. He demonstrates modern leadership in change management through the change of mind set. It has been a great success story. This paper seeks to outline the strategies he adopts through collating research theories on change management and observations by the author. This paper seeks to validate the change management theories in practice through this change agent.
