Simone Sawiris, Deputy Principal, Teaching and Learning, discusses why our Heads of Learning Areas are such an asset to the College.
Simone Sawiris, Deputy Principal, Teaching & Learning, was recognised this week for 30 years in Catholic education.

Outside her role as a Technology & Commerce teacher, Jessica has found huge success pursuing her passion of live music photography.
Our teaching staff recently built on their understanding of Cognitive Load Theory. Teachers evaluated and reported back on the impact of these strategies on learning.
Positive feedback is a powerful tool, but we generally provide negative feedback to our teachers, colleagues, families and children. Why is this? Why do we find it so difficult to give positive feedback? Are we too busy, or do we just not consider it important.
Our teachers embrace growth opportunities and have a true sense of pride in being the best teacher they can be. They really are passionate about their vocation.
A huge congratulations to Visual Arts teacher, Jordan Andreotta, who is the winner of the National Teacher – Artist Prize for 2022!
