Dear members of the Clancy community,
In what has been a difficult year for many in the face of COVID, it is my pleasure to welcome you all to our Newman eSymposium for 2021. This showcase has always been a celebration of learning and more importantly the relationships that enable that learning. However, this year it is also a testament to the resilience and fortitude of our students, who have been so well supported by their families and their teachers. As such, while the following illustrations are drawn from our Newman stream, they offer an insight into the teaching and learning that has been happening across the College more broadly.
Importantly, this showcase provides a powerful representation of the relationship between promise and fulfilment. The diagrammatic representation of Gagne’s Model of Giftedness and Talent clearly places the developmental process, or what happens in the school, and in the classroom as a key component that enables students to develop gifts, into competencies, or talents, and thereby realise their personal best.
Through showcasing the areas of Humanities, STEM and our Clancy University Projects we have attempted to provide a snapshot of how a range of competencies have been developed across the different Key Learning Areas within the school, reflecting the College’s mission to seek excellence in all that we do.
Thank you once more for taking the time to celebrate the work of our students and staff.
(Leader of Teaching and Learning)
