I take great inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s quote “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”.
I support and promote an underlying philosophy that school is a microcosm of society and, as such, should provide young people with the opportunity to think about their personal values and beliefs and strive ‘towards tomorrow’.
Our high standards are carried across our campus and includes the specialist work which has contributed towards advancing Indigenous Education.
Kormilda has worked hard to gain international accreditation for our strong global focus. Our learning framework is drawn from the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Program (MYP), the IB Diploma at Senior Years and, soon to be introduced, the IB Primary Years Program (PYP). This provides Kormilda students with opportunities to engage through the IB’s three fundamental concepts of holistic learning, intercultural awareness and meaningful communication. These programs, whilst studying the Australian curriculum as subject content, aim to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
I am proud of our staff, facilities and the opportunities that Kormilda College provides for our students and look forward to welcoming you to our extraordinary community.
