I am honoured and delighted to be the third Principal of Cornish College. As a member of the school community since 2010 and Deputy Principal from 2014, I feel well-prepared to lead the school through the next period of its development and to build on the wonderful momentum we have gathered under our first two Principals, Kerry Bolger and Vicki Steer. I look forward to embracing opportunities for this learning community to build on the innovative and progressive thinking that have long been our “point of difference” and the impetus of our passion for being at Cornish College.
Our school’s vision, our purpose for being, is steering us in a clear direction. When Cornish College was founded, we made a very important decision in answering the question that all schools should ask…“education for what?” We answered “education for a sustainable future”.
When we educate for a sustainable future, we make a commitment to design curriculum that is meaningful and transferable; we make a commitment to engage learners in a world beyond topics and textbooks, toward globally-accessible understandings; we make a commitment not to rush, but to thoughtfully gather the learning that can fill our senses with wonder, giving us time to inquire and delve deeply into what makes us curious.
I look forward to leading this wonderful school and working with the Cornish College community to ensure that we do our part in making a difference for the world we want for ourselves, our children and generations to come - a world in balance, where there is enough for all, forever.
That is the future that we are educating for right now.
