This case highlights how a non-Indigenous educational leader has made a positive impact on all aspects of a rural secondary school in Fiji Data for the study was obtained by means of a semi-structured interview with the head of the school. Also, five senior teachers and the school manager were interviewed to gain better insights about the leadership in the school. Analysis of the data showed that the leader’s daily function of planning, motivating, developing and supporting teachers have led to increased school efficiency and in turn overall school effectiveness. The case demonstrates that a good school leader whether he/she is appointed to lead any school can make a positive impact in terms of it’s management by encouraging all the participants to give their best in whatever they do inside or outside the classroom.
