Welcome From The Principal

 

I am very excited about our future and take an enormous amount of pride in our College, our students and their wide range of abilities and achievements.

We are working to ensure that our students learn through a seamless curriculum from Prep to Year 12.  Our current strategic goals include implementing an ‘Instructional Model’ that teachers follow when teaching a lesson from Prep right through to Year 12, an ‘Assessment Schedule’ that is aligned from Prep right through to Year 12 to ensure consistent assessments are occurring and ‘Positive Education’ to encourage students and teachers to learn about and apply positive mental health and wellbeing.

Last year we had great success with our Year 12 students with seventy five percent of all students applying for University degrees receiving first round offers, some taking early entry offers at the end of 2016 as well.  Our Year 3 NAPLAN results for all areas of Literacy and Numeracy are at and above the state level thanks to some great teaching and supportive processes.  These results lay a strong foundation for our students to experience success as they move through our college.

Our 5 – 8 Campus has an exceptional team of teachers that provide our students with excellent educational/social/emotional outcomes and our facilities continue to improve.  There are great leadership opportunities for students at this level of the College and they flow through into the 9 – 12 Campus.

The Technical Trade centre provides our students with new, purpose-built and exciting facilities to support their vocational learning as well as our VCE suite of subjects.

We strive to foster our students with a high level of self-worth, independence and a sense of community, while at the same time instilling the College values of Integrity, Cooperation, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. These five values underpin all that we teach and do. We pride ourselves on providing an environment that is conducive to achieving these aims.  Our College uniform is an important part of our positive environment, and we expect it to be worn with pride.

Kind Regards
