ED­U­CA­TION MAT­TERS

Cockburn Gazette - - EDUCATION MATTERS -

FOS­TER­ING fu­tureen­abled young peo­ple who are ca­pa­ble of tran­scend­ing life’s many bound­aries is the core pur­pose of Djoowak: The Be­yond Bound­aries In­sti­tute (BBI), launched ear­lier this year at All Saints’ Col­lege.

BBI brings to­gether uni­ver­si­ties, in­dus­try, cor­po­rate lead­ers, com­mu­ni­ties and fam­i­lies to cre­ate an ecosys­tem in which stu­dents can in­no­vate, ex­per­i­ment, flour­ish and thrive.

Recog­nis­ing there is no one path­way to a ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion or to a range of futures, BBI aims to pre­pare stu­dents not just for ex­ams but for a ful­fill­ing life en­sur­ing that they are in­ter­act­ing and SE­TON Catholic Col­lege un­der­stands the most ad­mired lead­ers among us are not sim­ply book smart, they are kind, com­pas­sion­ate and guided by a gen­uine sense of em­pa­thy.

At Se­ton, pas­toral care is in­ter­weaved through ev­ery stu­dent in­ter­ac­tion, nur­tur­ing well-rounded in­di­vid­u­als guided by strong morals and ethics.

Each child’s pas­toral care jour­ney be­gins from the mo­ment they first set­tle into the school learn­ing in lo­cal, na­tional and global con­texts.

Sup­ported by in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed ed­u­ca­tion trans­former Pro­fes­sor Yong Zhao, who is the pa­tron of the BBI, the In­sti­tute is fu­ture-fo­cused and ded­i­cated to in­no­va­tion and lead­er­ship en­vi­ron­ment, where Year 7 stu­dents are in­ducted by Year 11 lead­ers.

This com­ing to­gether of younger and older stu­dents is con­tin­u­ally nur­tured over the years, lead­ing to an en­vi­ron­ment that en­sures younger stu­dents feel sup­ported, while older stu­dents thrive in their roles as lead­ers and men­tors.

Such mean­ing­ful en­coun­ters are a foun­da­tion el­e­ment of Se­ton. in ed­u­ca­tional prac­tices.

“All Saints’ stu­dents have a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity – the school is on the cut­ting edge with in­no­va­tion and en­trepreneur­ship,” Prof Zhao said.

The col­lege be­lieves that ev­ery in­ter­ac­tion pro­vides stu­dents with the op­por­tu­nity to dis­cover and flour­ish, cre­at­ing the self-con­fi­dence to seize what life of­fers.

Lim­ited places re­main for 2020 and en­rol­ments are now open for Year 7, 2021.
