Head of Operations

Head of Operations SUPPORT SERVICES REPORT We welcomed our new Principal, Dr Peter Downey, at the start of Term 2 and as I complete another year as Head of Operations, I look forward to 2018 and beyond, serving on the Senior Leadership Team under Dr Downey’s direction. Mr Greg Morris Head of Operations Having reached my 10 years of service in March this year, I continue to reflect on the wonderful community spirit of OFGS, and the privilege it is to work here. Lastly, I would like to thank each member of the Support Services team for their dedication and hard work in the delivery of the many and varied roles they perform. I am extremely privileged to lead such a wonderful team of dedicated staff committed to supporting every area of School life. Mr Greg Morris Head of Operations OXFORD FALLS GRAMMAR SCHOOL 2017 YEARBOOK As I write this report, I am completing the final negotiations with a construction company to build the largest project in the history of Oxford Falls Grammar School. It will comprise eight new 21st-century learning spaces, a Senior School study centre, a multipurpose learning facility and a second bridge crossing over the creek. Incorporated into the design will also be a new location for the School’s café and the Year 12 common room. This year we saw Andrew Mah (HR Manager) depart. While Andrew will be missed, we have been blessed to have Nicola Pengilly step into the role of Human Resources Manager. Also, Michelle Wernicke (Executive Assistant to Head of Senior School) moved to Melbourne early in the year and has been replaced by Julie Shortland.

Director of Curriculum REPORT This year, a number of exciting new opportunities were introduced into the Senior School curriculum. Mr Paul Arena Director of Curriculum • A new languages program was rolled out; for the first time, students in Year 7 studied two languages through a Languages ‘Taster’ with a semester of study of Chinese (Mandarin) and of French. Chinese was introduced in the Senior School two years ago and interest in this language has been sustained with a strong number of students now studying this language in Stage 5. In the coming years, we look forward to student studying both Mandarin and French for the HSC. • Year 8 students benefitted from a new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) unit of work and this has translated to strong demand for STEM related electives such as Information & Software Technology and Design and Technology in 2018. • The Year 9 Accelerated Mathematics program was successfully introduced and next year, students in Year 10 will commence the Preliminary 2 unit Mathematics HSC which will set them up for their Extension Mathematics study in Year 11 and 12. • Our first group of Year 11 students studied 1 unit Studies of Religion and 2 unit courses in Photography, Video & Digital Imaging and Sport (PVDI), Lifestyle & Recreation Studies (SLRS). Each of these courses were a welcome addition to the suite offered in Stage 6 and strong demand was again recorded by Year 10 students in their selections for 2018. There were a number of academic highlights in 2017. We were particularly pleased with the achievements of our Year 12 students in their HSC and the exciting opportunities for tertiary study available due to the strong ATARs achieved. Our NAPLAN results this year also continued to demonstrate a strong focus in both Literacy and Numeracy in the Senior School. HSC RESULTS 2017 INDIVIDUAL ACHIEVEMENTS: The top ATAR of 99.6 was achieved by Joshua Spiller. In addition Joshua Spiller was honoured as an All-Rounder for attaining 90 or above (Band 6 or Band E4) in at least ten units of study.
