A Message from Mr Plows
“I would like to express my gratitude and feeling of deep excitement and responsibility in being appointed the Dean of Year 10, from 2020 onwards. My predecessor, Ian Harris has done a wonderful job with the current Year 9 cohort. Their expression of respect and honoring others has been a hallmark of his success. This year, I have worked alongside him and the mentor teachers, implementing the Story and Challenge program. This program has focused on the growth and development of the students’ self-confidence, self-discipline and self-esteem.
As I enter 2020 as newly appointed Dean of Year, we will start to focus on Vision as an idea and concept. My mentor group teachers and I look forward to engaging our students during Year 10, by helping them make good and individually appropriate academic and career choices for their upcoming Year 11 and 12 experience. I have taught at Swan Christian College since 2015 and I have seen the strong growth and development of the school and the students during this time. I look forward to continuing to speak into the growth of our students and preparing them to be good citizens of the school and productive and caring members of society.”
