From the window with a view - week 1, term 4 2017


Welcome back to Term 4, where we will be involved in many interesting events. Our new staff members, Sarah Farrell Whelan and Jason Carthew, have arrived and are assessing the schools needs as well as introducing themselves to students and parents. Focussing on wellbeing support, Sarah has been visiting primary classes to check in, chatting about the good things at Korowal, the things that ‘fill your bucket’, as well as asking for suggestions of things that may not be here but which could fill the bucket further. Similar conversations will be held with the students in high school. Sarah will be consulting with parents and staff also. Jason has some of Joachim’s previous position but also expands into assessing our administration systems, website, communications systems, multi-media, maker space and mandatory technology options. This is a big portfolio and we are working through priorities at present.

Year 12 Graduation Ceremony 2017

 

On Thursday of our last week of term, Week 10, we held our Graduation Ceremony for Year 12, 2017. This event was a joyous celebration of the students schooling at Korowal, and their families.

 

For Charlie, Callum, Violet, Suri, and their families, Korowal has been their school from kindy. Over the years, others have come and gone, and formed the group that is Year 12, 2017. This includes Raph, Rommenie, Jasmine, Conal, Will, George, Tom, Hannah, Jaz, and Saskia. We are very proud of them. Korowal has been their chrysalis, the shelter that nurtured their transformation from childhood to adulthood.

Farewell and Thank You from Joachim Herrmann


Before I came to Korowal, I had moved around quite a few schools-  in Germany, New Zealand, and finally Australia.  When I started here, I had one big aim:  To see my students grow up over the years. Now I am standing next to Kirsty, one of my very first Bio students in the early days of Korowal, 1990, 27 years ago.

 

It is so amazing, to have witnessed our tiny school survive and prosper over the decades.  There is no place like Korowal, where there is such acceptance of each other and such respect for everyone’s individuality, - including mine.
