School’s approach matches principal’s philosophy

Vicki Steer was understandably delighted when she took up the position of Principal at Cornish College this year.

“The college’s commitment to education for a sustainable future, its holistic and innovative approach to student development is strongly aligned with my educational philosophy,” Vicki says. “Our students are learning about how they can make a difference today and as adults. Our vision of sustainable living is all-encompassing and includes the personal, socio-cultural, urban/technological and environmental dimensions.

“This is a vibrant school community with a commitment to excellence in teaching and learning. We recognise the importance of academic rigour, creativity and developing strong foundation skills for learning.”

Vicki joined the college after 11 years as Principal of Sydney’s Ravenswood School for Girls, before which she was Vice-Principal of Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School and Head of the Senior School at Lowther Hall Anglican Girls’ Grammar School in Melbourne.

Cornish College, set on 40ha of natural parkland, is an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme school. It has 615 students from Early Learning Centre to Year 12, and more than half travel by bus from the Bayside and Mornington Peninsula region.
