It is with great excitement that I share
the news that our college has been accepted as an Independent Public School in
2016. The Independent Public Schools initiative provides schools with greater
empowerment in decision-making and the increased capacity to work in new ways
to maximise student outcomes.
The initiative recognises that the best
decision-making often happens at the local level.
As an Independent Public School in 2016,
our school will benefit from the ability to embrace additional autonomy to
partnerships with industry and the community
tailoring of our local school programs.
Our application was successful as it
showed the panel that we are already taking on the challenge to be innovative
and to lift our school’s performance.
