The ability to work collaboratively is one of the 21st Century skills that is being sought by employers and is so often on display in our student body. It involves working together toward a goal. This is one of the many traits that sets our students apart as they interact with our community because they recognise that they are better together.
Over the past weeks our College has seen some very prominent examples of collaboration by our students. The Primary Swimming Carnival allowed our two campuses to work together, with some incredible scenes of encouragement and effort, but also provided an opportunity for our Secondary students to assist their younger peers in creating an incredibly positive day. The Secondary Senior Ball was another example of students enjoying the outcome of the collaboration from staff, parents and students.
This doesn’t just happen. These two recent examples are an outworking of the collaboration that is developed daily in classes across the College. It is reflective of the values that underpin the education supported at Cornerstone and helps produce students of character and influence in our community.
