From Education Age, a good news story about Narre Warren South P-12 College – a school that turned itself around.
Three years ago, Narre Warren South P-12 College was not the school it is today.
It had failed to meet basic standards of learning and student wellbeing. As it wrestled with the challenges of teaching in one of the most disadvantaged areas in the state, it faced a priority review by the education department.
Rob Duncan became principal in 2015 knowing things had to change. He and his staff set out on a makeover mission that has now been so successful the south-eastern college has recently won awards and been classified by the department as a “school of influence”, setting a statewide benchmark.
