A Message from the Principal


 

I welcome the opportunity to introduce you to Laverton P-12 College.

 

As Principal of Laverton P-12 College, I appreciate the unique opportunity of working within this diverse and vibrant learning community. It is unlike any other educational setting in the area as we are able to provide our families a seamless education from the start of their schooling years to when they graduate into further studies or employment opportunities.

 

Laverton P-12 College is a vibrant learning hub with approximately 700 students ranging from Prep to Year 12. Our 100 + workforce consisting of teachers, Education Support Staff and Administration staff, look after each transition point in your child's education and offer a range of pathways when your child is ready to exit their compulsory education. Our diverse multicultural student population, with a significant number of our students coming from the Karen and Indian Communities, is another aspect of our college that makes us unique.

 

Our College facilities and resources ensure that students are provided with an optimal learning environment and compliments the rigorous teaching and learning opportunities we provide. Our facilities include a Performing Arts Centre, fully equipped VET Hospitality centre, an Engineering workshop, Gymnasium, landscaped gardens, primary and secondary ovals, multiple netball and basketball courts, an undercover synthetic area for play and a beach volleyball area. Each classroom has TV technology and our students have access to a notebook and/or iPad’s.

 

Our school values of Learning, Belonging and Succeeding underpin all that we do at Laverton P-12 College. We continually connect these values to the teaching and learning programs and they are relevant across all stages of the learning continuum. Our Vision is to nurture our students through learning and encourage our students to actively participate in, and contribute to, an ever-changing and diverse community with respect, responsibility and fairness.


Together with the three Assistant Principals at Laverton P-12 College, our strategic intent is to apply a relentless focus on high levels of achievement for all students and teachers. We believe, given sufficient support and challenge, all of our students will learn and succeed regardless of their personal circumstances. Furthermore, my focus as the College Principal will be on prioritising building a culture of high expectations for all key stakeholders, particularly our students and staff. The successes achieved to date at Laverton P-12 College are the result of significant contribution and commitment from our staff and support from the school community. We are a very dynamic school community where the energy and positivity of our students is something that is celebrated.


Our values underpin a cohesive coordinated structure that enhances the wellbeing and learning opportunities for every student. In particular, our Values connect to our School-Wide Positive Behaviour approach, and this supports our students in achieving their learning potential. We are committed to providing a child-safe environment where children and young people are safe and feel safe, and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives. Providing the structures, programs and opportunities in a high-quality learning environment is our work.  I believe we are well on the way to delivering these goals with high-quality outcomes for all members of the Laverton Community.

 

I am proud to be the Principal of a school that challenges the boundaries and expectations of what students can achieve and where all students are encouraged to act with initiative, integrity and self-discipline so they can contribute to a safe and caring learning environment.

 

This website provides an introduction to our great school.
