When school leaders and educators are weighed down by burdensome and inefficient administrative processes, they have less time and resources to do what they do best – educating students.

ISV’s Southern Cross Program is designed to support your school to do just that. It aims to streamline processes and improve productivity to free up precious staff and financial resources. This means greater staff satisfaction and, ultimately, better student outcomes.

The Southern Cross Program is full of practical strategies to help schools:

  • define and clarify a significant process challenge or opportunity
  • empower staff to instigate change and continuous improvement
  • align your school’s vision with day-to-day operations
  • maximise resources and improve efficiency
  • develop an action plan and implement solutions.

What’s your school’s unique challenge or opportunity?

Every school is unique. And no project or initiative undertaken as part of the Southern Cross Program looks the same.

More than 150 school teams have been involved since the program began in 2011. Previous projects have spanned everything from improving admin and reporting processes, to enhancing student wellbeing and community engagement.

The possibilities are open, but preference is given to projects geared towards enhancing student outcomes as a result of improved school processes.

Previous projects undertaken as part of Southern Cross include:


Expressions of interest are now open for Southern Cross 2024
