CIS visits Hutchins: an historic moment
Friday, 11 October 2013
From 9-12 September we hosted two members of the Council of International Schools (CIS) for our Preliminary Visit.
This is the first step in a 5-stage accreditation process which will see Hutchins become a CIS accredited school.
Ray Davis, Associate Director Accreditation and Regional Accreditation Officer of Council of International Schools and Panayoula Parha,Principal of Norwood Morialta High School in Adelaide, SA visited as supportive partners in our improvement process.
This visit provided us with an improvement framework, which will inform the whole school community and deliver us with full ownership of bettering our practice. The visit was aimed at working with our strengths and also looking at and managing the educational challenges that lie ahead. The major goal of any school is how to analyse and track data on students to provide continual progress and improvement.
As an education community it is important for us to equip our students with the skills they require to compete in the international market. We need to decide what skills we want our boys to graduate with in order to enable them to be global citizens and how we are going to achieve this.
