Principal’s Update

Parent Forum – Future Directions

We were grateful to be able to share our developments with a group of parents on Tuesday night. For some time now, we have been planning for 2019 and beyond, so there was a lot of information to be shared. The presentation is available to download below so that those who attended, and others, can reflect and consider the information.

As much as I think the parents welcomed the opportunity to seek information, there is also learning for the College gained from these forums. The evening highlighted areas where we need to provide clarity and bring our community to understand the reasoning behind the decisions we have been working towards for some time.

We appreciated the candid questions and hope that any member of our community feels able to have a discussion with a member of the College Leadership Team about our directions in learning and curriculum.

Positions are currently advertised for leadership roles in the new structure:

Master Plan

We also spoke at the parent forum about master planning. The College has been looking at our learning environments (school facilities) and how the buildings impact on the educational experience of students and teachers. Our draft master plan has been developed based on this research. Please have a browse through the links to research in the presentation.

The draft master plan is being presented to the Mercy Education Board for consideration on 13 June. We hope to be able to share further details with you soon.

Seussical

Congratulations to our team of Year 9 students and staff on their committed work over the past five months, culminating in three brilliant performances of Seussical in the Ulumbarra Theatre last week.
