Over the last year we have been defining our future priorities at the college. Providing clarity for our future often provides challenges as we face the things that we do well and reflect on the ‘not so well’. Part of this process was to seek feedback from our parents and students.
Over the next twelve months we are endeavouring to continue building on our academic program with our focus in the areas of literacy and numeracy. We are seeking to develop a range of extra-curricular opportunities for students including the Southern Spirit Sports Club and the school music program.
We also committed to developing a range of interest activities in the areas of science and technology. Over coming months we are wanting to expand student experiences to include computer, drama, science club, drone and robotic development and even computer coding.
If you are interested, or have expertise in these areas and wish to be involved in helping establishing of extra-curricular programs, please feel free to contact me.
Overarching these future priorities is a clear need for us to improve our communication with parents. Over the coming weeks we will be developing a communication standard which will define our protocols and expectations for communication. While there may be times we do not meet the standard they will help us to develop policies and processes to minimise communication errors.
