School leaders and educators carry an enormous responsibility in creating and driving a world class education system.

In a rapidly changing world, they are expected to prepare our young people for a future that we cannot yet see or perhaps even imagine.

This is being asked of our educators during a time of increasing demands for access and accountability from government, parents, communities and students.

With a long history of advising in the school and education sector, and particularly independent schools and their governing bodies in Queensland, Thynne + Macartney provides a broad service helping principals, executives, business managers and governing bodies to manage operations and risk.
