Principal's Ponderings: September 2017

At the Whole School Assembly this week I asked the students to reflect on what this end of Term Three means to our Year 12 students.  It means Trial exams, finishing assessment work and final exams in a few weeks’ time.  I reiterated how many changes will be occurring in their lives in a few weeks’ time.

I reflected on a statement made by my Psychology lecturer when I first entered university. My lecturer said: The only CONSTANT in life is CHANGE.

Assembly 28 August 2017 speech

Good Morning.

Exceptional academic and physical fitness achievements have been the highlights of the NT Dry season at Kormilda College this year. I have had the privilege of attending a number of events and was most impressed by the enthusiasm for learning and undertaking challenging experiences shown by our students.

Some of the highlights have been:

  • Students in Year 5 and 6 have been doing a great job with their Inquiry projects. Much thought and care went into the making of their 3D models

Principal's Ponderings: End of Term 1 2017

Dear Parents and Carers

Principal's Ponderings - March 2017

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.

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.

Week 3 of Term 1

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.
