Building Ideas with Santa Maria College

27th Sep 2018 • eiw Projects

​The master planning process with Santa Maria College is well underway. We began with 40 participants forming mixed groups of students, staff and parents taking part in their first Building Ideas workshop.


Staff, student and parent surveys have now been completed with a high response rate, and the Santa Maria student participation has been inspiring. Student voice always needs to be encouraged! Some interesting ideas were raised as we went through questions such as 'where is the heart of the school?' and 'where is your favourite place to learn or teach?' The participants value their rich history at the College and their strongly valued Mercy values of Service, Justice, Compassion, Hospitality and Excellence.

We continue to work together with the community developing new ideas with plenty more to digest in preparation for the next round of workshops.
