The world is changing at such a frantic pace and here at Murrays Bay Intermediate we are committed to empower every child with the knowledge, tools and ability to maximise their individual potential not only now but in years to come.
It took 30 years for a quarter of the population to be using the telephone in the USA, yet only seven years for a quarter of the population to be using the internet… We are preparing students for jobs that currently may not exist and to use technology that is not yet invented and ultimately preparing them with the emotional intelligence to solve problems that have not yet been considered.
As the Board of Trustees it is our responsibility to ensure that our Strategic Plan is continually realigned with the changing world and that it embodies our commitment to deliver significant, sustainable learning outcomes that prepare and inspire all children to have self confidence, motivation and the ability to excel in all they desire to pursue.
We feel that our Invitational School is truly an exciting place in which to learn and our last Education Review Office statement affirmed this in their favourable report that stated; ‘Students are increasingly able to manage their own learning. They are highly motivated and apply a variety of learning processes and strategies in different contexts of study.’
We have some exciting new projects proposed during the next few years including a new purpose designed and built auditorium, a new canteen layout and many of our existing buildings will be modernised.
We welcome and encourage parent involvement during this exciting phase of your child’s educational journey, be it attending a school trip, camp or coaching a school sports team. I am sure you and your child will enjoy these next two years at Murrays Bay Intermediate.
