A World of Opportunity 

Welcome to Term 3

Dear Parents, Carers and members of the Kormilda College community,

We begin Term 3, with energy and high expectations as the students begin work on the second semester of their studies and in particular the Year 12 students begin their final full term of study before their exams in Term 4. These milestones are significant not only in the lives of the students but also within families.

The family is the most significant influence in a child’s life and it is the support and nurturing from the family which creates for the individual student the confidence and positive outlook to take them into adult life. The school is also an important influence and at Kormilda College we place the student at the centre of our work. Our teaching programs; cultural experiences and extra curricula opportunities provides a rich context for learning and development.

During this semester there will be many opportunities for excursions; the continuation of the Outdoor Education program and visitors to the College who will be part of the diverse range of learning experiences supporting programs in PE and Science along with other subject areas. In Term 3, there will be an opportunity for parents to have an interview with their child/children’s teacher in P/T interviews and for parents to continue to use SEQTA Engage which offers an overview of each subject and course along with the assessment schedule which will be provided in week 3.

As you are well aware now the Hailleybury School from Melbourne is beginning its preparation and due diligence for starting next year as Hailleybury Rendall School. Mr Craig Glass who is the Principal from 2018 is at the College this semester meeting staff and parents. He is also conducting enrolment interviews for families looking to enrol next year. Mr Glass has been welcomed by the Kormilda College staff and is attending some meetings and also meeting with each member of staff.

We welcome Mr Glass and his wife Kerry to Kormilda College and look forward to working with them in the coming months.

Along with planning for the future, Kormilda College has a working party of staff and community members working on a project to celebrate and recognize the immense contribution this College has had in the lives of students and families from across the Territory for the last 50 years. The intention is to have a photographic exhibition tracing each decade since 1967 when education commenced on this site. Already there are many photos of past events and students which are creating an overall impression of a vibrant and happy place of learning.

There will be other celebrations for Term 4 still to be developed and these will involve the community both in the College and in the broader Darwin and Territory community. Whilst it is an end of an era for Kormilda College this site and buildings will continue to be part of a rich educational story which will go forward next year.

I wish all students and families a positive semester and I will keep you well informed of what is happening as the term continues. 

Ms Fay Gurr
Deputy Principal for the Principal Dr Spiers
