This chapter reports on a study that aimed to gain consensus from participants on innovative and creative ideas they currently employed across two schools of Choiseul, Solomon Islands. Utilising the Nominal Group Technique (NGT), the study recruited six participants from two schools at the Choiseul Bay area of Choiseul Island, Solomon Islands. The study established consensus among participants that there is increasing opportunity for continuous staff development, an active subcommittee for dealing with student behaviour, and building new staff houses are positive projects. Eliciting positive activities from schools rather than leading with negativity has implications for the continuous development of schools at Choiseul and beyond. In developing countries, it is important to drive school improvement agendas is the living and working conditions of teachers. Having poor living and working conditions of teachers and the cumulative hardships they face, both professionally and personally, affect their capabilities and effectiveness in the classroom.
