Welcome to the second half of Term One. Our staff have been very busy this week with ParentTeacher interviews early in the week and several sessions of professional learning with visiting Southern Cross University researchers, Professor David Lynch and Dr David Turner. The two Davids bring to our College an air of excitement with the sharing of an app that we can use in class to determine the range of teacher practice and how our students are learning. Using the McREL app, a ‘snapshot’ of. classroom practice can be produced with three minute walkthroughs.

It’s great to be back, especially to welcome the fresh faces of the new students, staff and teachers.
We are already in Week 5, wow what a quick term! We have already gotten off to a great start, full of activities and events. Our Valentine’s Day fundraiser went really well and we would like to thank all organising members, especially Jasmin for all her hard work.

The Kormilda College logo, the figure with uplifted arms, represents reaching forward and upwards. Kormilda, a word adapted from a Kakadu region language, meaning ‘tomorrow’, encourages our students to look ‘Towards Tomorrow’, now our College motto.

Welcome to Week 3 of Term 1, 2017. Today at the assembly I spoke of our Blessings, those events or people or things for which we are thankful. I mentioned that we are sometimes asked to consider our personal blessings but today I want consideration to be given to the blessings we have in the Northern Territory.

Welcome to Term One, 2017 at Kormilda College. I hope that everyone has enjoyed a happy and safe holiday, and taken a break from routine.
Kormilda College is a school with a long and proud tradition of excellence. ‘Towards Tomorrow’ is the motto of our school. The name ‘Kormilda’, chosen in the 1970’s by students at the school, derived from a Western Arnhem Land Aboriginal language meaning ‘tomorrow’, embodies the whole purpose of the school, which is to provide young people with an education that can take them into a future of their choice.

Congratulations to all Middle School students who participated in the Interdisciplinary Units of work during the last two weeks of school. I was very proud to see the creative efforts when their projects were on display in the Dumabudla Centre. I do so admire all of our students who work so hard, who demonstrate our school values and who understand that access to a quality education is a privilege and not a right.

We would like to wish you all a safe and happy holiday before the end of this year. 2016 has been full of successful events such as sports days, overseas trips for students, and many student-run fundraisers. It certainly was an exciting year, with the Year 12s moving onto the next chapter of their lives. We would like to wish them all the best for their future endeavours and can’t wait to hear about what they achieve.

Our College has been serving the Darwin and Territory community for decades as the longest established school. In this time the College has had ups and downs as do all schools and for many reasons. What makes Kormilda College the outstanding community that it has always been, is found in the passionate and determined support of our families. Now is no different with the active and willing support of groups of parents, we will see an end result as an even greater College emerges.

This week we celebrated World Teachers’ Day as our senior students prepare for their final exams. A fine example of the work of teachers is the thoroughness with which they have prepared their Year 12 students.
I would like to thank all of our teaching staff across the whole College for the effort and support that has been given to our students each and every day this year. I would also like to wish our Year 12 students well in their exams and trust that they will receive the success they seek and have worked so hard to achieve.

Kormilda’s immediate future in 2017 has been saved by an extraordinary effort by many people including our supportive parents and local Indigenous leaders because they believe that Kormilda is a great school and that it needs to be saved.
