My name is Dora Luxton and together with Bob Knight and Deacon Michael Lindsay, we have been appointed by Cairns Catholic Education Services as the Good Counsel College Transition Leadership Team. We feel privileged to have been given this opportunity to serve the Good Counsel College community for Semester 1, 2018.
As a team of professional educators, we bring to Good Counsel College many decades of successful experience leading contemporary Catholic schools throughout Queensland.
In a rapidly changing learning environment, our aim is to guide the staff of the College in strengthening excellent learning and teaching through the effective engagement, progress, achievement and wellbeing of every student every day at Good Counsel College.
We are also looking forward to working with the staff, parents, students and wider community members to ensure the Vision and Mission for the College outlined in the 2017-2019 Strategic Directions are lived and celebrated. In particular, as a Marist College, all community members are called to live out Mary’s example of faith, strength, mercy and compassion, humbly assisting others particularly the poor and marginalised and being aware of the gentle presence of God in and through the ordinary events of every day living.
I genuinely extend an open invitation to anyone who would like to come and have a chat with me or another member of the Transition Leadership Team about any matters relating to Good Counsel College, to make contact with Catherine Mifsud (Principal’s PA) at the College.
Blessings and best wishes for 2018
