Strategic Directions: Redefining the future of education delivered in our region

Cardijn College/Marcellin Technical have embarked on a new Strategic Directions Project which will culminate in our new Strategic Plan 2019 – 2025. This Plan encompasses the intended growth of our College community, to embrace more technology, and expand our learning spaces as we welcome our first intake of Year 7 students in 2019.

Over the coming weeks, we will be collaborating with the Cardijn/Marcellin community and external stakeholders to help shape the future of our College and ultimately, to define the values and attributes of the students who pass through our doors.

Our aim is to produce world-class graduates who are well-rounded to be citizens with a passion for life-long learning and become future leaders and influencers who make a difference to the world.

As valued members of our community, you are integral to us achieving our goals and I invite you to come on this journey with us as we redefine the future of education delivered in our region.

You are invited to complete a 15 minute Parent Futures survey to provide your feedback in areas such as educational provision, faith and spirituality, community support and infrastructure.

We appreciate your contribution during this significant phase of review and reflection. The closing date to complete the survey is Friday 16 March.
