In 2017, SASPA developed a Maths Leaders Network as a means of accelerating pedagogical change in secondary maths classrooms consistent with our commitment to contemporary world class learning.
2017’s network was limited to schools represented on the SASPA Board or on the SASPA Curriculum and Pedagogy committee. In 2018 the network was expanded to include all schools with SASPA members.
