Co-Designing a New Model to Deliver Choice in Secondary Catholic Education for the Circular Head Area
We have embarked on a project to explore the development of a future model for delivering choice in secondary Catholic education for the Circular Head area. The goal is to engage students, parents, teachers, the community, business and industry as co-designers in a model responsive to the unique needs and circumstance of the area and which will continue to inspire learning and continuous improvement.
The project’s two key drivers are as follows:
- Firstly, around 80 of our students travel three hours or more every day, to access secondary Catholic education at the college at Burnie. By anyone’s standards, this is a quite a daily commute!
- The second driver involves our response to the restrictions experienced during the 2020 Covid pandemic and lockdown. The ability of teachers, students and families to adapt to using available technology showed us we could successfully deliver learning on-line.
We have heard from a large number of our students from Circular Head who were able to share their lived experiences with us. Despite the distance, the level of their engagement here at our College was inspirational to hear and capture.
