“It takes a whole village to raise a child.” This much-quoted proverb says it can’t be done by an individual teacher, or even by several teachers working independently. Instead, it requires communal effort of many adults, in a variety of roles. We at Salesian College Sunbury have a shared understanding and a common purpose aimed at helping one another to teach, nurture and develop our students to reach their potential.

In the last few weeks, there has been a buzz around the college. Teachers are exchanging ideas about how to innovate in the classroom and grow our impact as teachers.  Every classroom teacher has a learning coach where these conversations develop into behaviours and strategies to improve.

As I walk around the college, I see students actively engaged in learning. Teachers are creating lessons that are relevant and inclusive of all students. I continue to be blown away by the many talents of our students. Recently I was privileged to accompany four Year 7 students to St Anne’s Primary School. The students were invited back to their primary school to speak to the Year 6 classes about leadership. Our students showed leadership by the way they conducted themselves and the way they described what it means to be a leader. Congratulations to Blake Carroll, Patrick Ervin, Bardyn McIntyre and Amy Webber.
