What I really enjoy is seeing the development of each student, and noticing the relationship between students and their teachers. The wording of most report comments is very encouraging, with teachers highlighting the positive elements of the student’s work while making some suggestions as to how they could continue to improve.   In our College, we speak…

        Dear Parents, Staff and Students   As I write this article, a meeting of the student counsellors and psychologists across our four Gold Coast Anglican schools is taking place in the College Board Room adjacent to my office. This meeting prompts me to write about the mental health and wellbeing of our students. There is no doubt that mental health is becoming a very real issue for society and is reflected in the population of every school. The fact that our counsellors belong to a strong network that meets regularly so they can support and learn from each other,…

        Dear Parents, Staff and Students   As you know, I was in Melbourne last week at an Anglican Summit led by the Reverend Dr Daniel Heischman, Executive Director of the National Association of Episcopal Schools, USA. During this summit, we discussed “What does it mean to be an Anglican School?” Representatives from all states and many of the 23 Dioceses and schools attended over the two days discussing our Anglican traditions and what makes us different from other schools. Such a gathering has not happened elsewhere in the worldwide Anglican Church. Dr Heischman led the summit by giving us…
