ABOUT 100 principals, heads of schools and teachers from Foundation Christian College, Mandurah Baptist College and Frederick Irwin Anglican School met on March 28 to attend a symposium headed by consultants from the Association of Independent Schools Western Australia.

The group has been meeting together on a regular basis since 2012 to share current educational initiatives and discuss ways to improve the education of students in the Mandurah area.

Foundation Christian College Principal Andrew Newhouse said networking events show that education is a collaborative effort.

“When we work together in this way, we can give our students the best experiences in their schooling,” he said.

“I also believe that we, as educators, can learn from each other and then pass on this knowledge to our students.

“It also shows the community that our schools are united in our commitment to teaching at a high level of quality and that we all endeavour to see our students achieve all that they can at their family’s school of choice.”
