Emmanuel Catholic College has embarked on a community engagement initiative to develop a Vision for Learning for the College.
Please click the video below to view the explanatory video about this exciting Vision for Learning process the College is undertaking. For more information, please see the FAQs below.
A Vision for Learning will be a statement and key focus areas detailing the type of school Emmanuel will be and what our teachers and students will be like.
We are at a significant point in the life of the college, it is time to examine our history and traditions, and to develop a common language and understanding of the purpose of Emmanuel to ensure we are the best we can be.
An extensive consultation process will take place, which includes all members of our Emmanuel community- staff, students, parents, and alumni. A combination of workshops, brainstorming sessions, surveys and small focus group sessions will be included.
A whole-community Climate Survey will be conducted to gather information on where the school is currently and where we need to go.
An Ideas Team will also be formed to dig further into the information gathered, to pull it all together, and to develop this into a concise vision with key focus areas that will become our Vision for Learning.
Our ideas team will have representatives from each area of our college: staff, students, parents, and alumni. The ideas team will be vital in taking the wider gathered information and turning it into our Vision for Learning.
Members of the Ideas Team will need to attend a one-day workshop, then will have approx. one to two consultation sessions each month. These will be conducted via Microsoft Teams.
A large information gathering source for the Vision for Learning will be through a Climate Survey. We’ll use the information received from the Climate Survey to feed back into our Vision for Learning, and also for future improvements of the College.
This survey will be distributed to all parents via the College App, to all students through their Religious Education classes and to all staff through their Staff Meeting.
All responses to the Climate Survey are anonymous. Surveys will be sent to an external facilitator (National School Improvement Partnerships) where the results will be analysed and sent back to the school as a combined result, no individual responses will be provided to the College.
The Climate Survey is now closed. Thank you to everyone who completed the Survey.
