Visible Learning Update
Last Thursday, 25 leaders of learning from across the College came together for our first Visible Learning - Leaders into Evidence Day. It was a significant moment for our combined campuses as we took the next steps in leading learning and using the Visible Learning Framework. Throughout the workshop we were given a range of data collection strategies to support the gathering of baseline data to show where each campus is currently situated against the 4 elements of Visible Learning:

  • Visible Learners

  • Know thy Impact

  • Passionate and Inspired Teachers

  • Effective Feedback

In a nutshell, Visible Learning is about using evidence to create improvements in the learning environment. Based on work done by Professor John Hattie, Visible Learning strategies are built around evidence-based research on what works best in schools to improve learning.

Parent Representative Group
Kate Kilpatrick, Head of Champagnat Campus and I met with a small group of enthusiastic parents last week to begin considering ways in which parents of our combined campuses might come together throughout 2018 and beyond. We discussed the desire to have social opportunities for parents to gather, family events, parent information sessions and also the importance of parental involvement in the life of the College through participation in a variety of College events.  We were delighted with the energy and excitement of the group and look forward to announcing a joint campus social gathering before the end of the term more details to come soon! If you would like any more information about the Parent Reps or you would like to join this group, please feel free to contact either myself or Kate Kilpatrick.
