Cornish College

A message from the Principal

Education for a sustainable future is education of a different kind. It is education that aims to take students to depths of understandings that are transferable beyond school, preparing them to make a difference for a better world.

The Cornish College Rings of Sustainability provide a lens through which we can operate, design curriculum and engage in critical thinking. The Rings represent four dimensions of sustainability that are interdependent – personal, socio-cultural, urban/technological and natural. We understand that each of these dimensions must be in balance in order to ensure a future where there is enough for all, forever.

Our educational vision is about so much more than numbers. Every outcome that our students achieve, whether it be related to their ATAR; sporting achievements; participation in gifted and talented programs; social justice initiatives or the assessment of a unit of inquiry, should be an outcome that develops essential understandings about our world and builds upon the skills, knowledge and attitudes young people require for a sustainable future.

Employment at Cornish College offers teachers the opportunity to design and implement curriculum that makes a difference. It offers the opportunity to be part of a team where responsibility is shared, ideas are welcomed and pushing the boundaries of a curriculum framework is encouraged.
