The Future Bright Panel
Posted on 14 Dec 2020
Did you know that our principal was recently a guest on a live panel hosted by Will Anderson? The Future Bright Panel spent time discussing whether or not the future is indeed bright and Kerrie, alongside some of her UC colleagues, spent some time discussing their professional and personal thoughts on this matter. If you have a bit of spare time and would like to know a bit more about Kerrie and her educational philosophies and values (or you just love Will Anderson and want to watch him 😊) then please follow this link…
National Education Summit

Congratulations to Mali and Lisette!
Our MCSS HS Library has been featured in the National Education Summit blog this month.
Teacher Librarians Mali and Lisette talk about the work they have done to promote recreational literacy in our school community and the fantastic outcomes they have had with student engagement through the various programs they have offered. We are indeed fortunate to have professional librarians at our school who are acknowledged as leading practitioners at the national level.
Featured is Year 9 student Ellie S., a frequent patron of the Library’s book request program.
