Welcome to 2020
I would like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri people as the traditional owners of the country upon which we learn and work. We recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community and pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
Welcome to a new school year at Gisborne Secondary College. 2020 will be a significant and exciting year for us. Our enrolments continue to increase, which is a strong sign of the College’s support in the local community.
We will launch our new instructional model, ‘LEARN’, implement our School Wide Positive Behaviours framework, drive improvements in literacy and numeracy across the curriculum, increase student voice and agency in all areas, and strengthen our partnerships with parents and the community.
Our guiding principle will be ‘inclusion’; this means several things:
- we will seek to know our students and adapt our practices to meet their individual needs
- we will include student voice in our decision making
- we will engage with our parents and families to support their understanding about the role they can play in supporting their child’s learning.
Our values remain as Respect, Achievement, Innovation and Diversity. As a school community, we must ensure that these values are alive and visible every day.
Let’s take care of ourselves, support each other, and have a wonderful year!
