Principal’s Welcome

Welcome back everybody, as we commence the 2017 school year.

It is with great excitement that we will see the commencement of works on our facilities upgrade over the next school year.

Preparation, planning and working with the Architects (Taylor Oppenheim) and the Department consumed much of 2016, however the results will be worth the wait. The upgrade will see the College transformed from one of the oldest designed and built schools on the Peninsula to the newest 21st Century learning space with the best light, space and
acoustics that today’s technology can produce.

The unique feature of the college that sets it apart from all others is the strength of relationships within its learning community. All students are well known by all staff which makes it easier to identify and nurture each individual’s strengths and passions as well as providing supports in other areas
as required.

The College has a strong focus on Pastoral Care with the same Pastoral Care teachers remaining a constant primary point of contact throughout each child’s journey from Year 7 to 12.

The 2017 school year will present many opportunities for our young people to grow and develop and I strongly encourage all students to get involved with their school through the various clubs and other opportunities on offer be they sporting, cultural, musical, academic or otherwise.

I am extremely proud to be involved with such a unique school setting and I would welcome the opportunity to speak to any parent around how the college can support their child’s learning journey.
