School leadership at Shenton College is in the spotlight after the school won a prestigious WA Education Award.
Shenton College received the Excellence in School Leadership Award – along with a $10,000 prize – in recognition of its inclusive approach to fostering leadership at all levels.
Shenton College Principal Mike Morgan said the school had been rewarded for embedding leadership “beyond the boardroom”.
“Leadership has been about trying to empower teachers, non-teaching staff and students to collaborate, take risks and be curious to create success for every student,” Morgan said.
“We have invested significant resources and time in ensuring quality teaching and evaluating how we measure the success of initiatives and provide platforms for teachers and students to speak out in a safe space.”
Mr Morgan said the school was “ecstatic” to receive the award, which recognized that lasting reform had been achieved through a collaborative effort rather than by a single person.
“It’s an award that recognizes the breadth and depth of leadership across the school,” he said.
Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery said the schools that received an award have demonstrated excellence at the highest level.
“This year, the awards recognized whole-school efforts and the impact schools have on student growth and achievement,” Ms. Ellery said.
“It is important to recognize the collective impact that an entire school has on the growth and success of its students, as well as to celebrate excellence in WA public schools.
“The winning schools have gone above and beyond to provide students with an exceptional education, ensure they have access to life-changing opportunities, and are set up to succeed in the paths they choose.”
