Delany College was recognised alongside Australia’s best schools after winning a place in The Educator magazine’s Innovative Schools Awards.
The Educator highlighted just 40 Australian schools leading in teaching and learning. Delany was ranked in the company of Knox College, Melbourne Girls Grammar and Geelong Grammar.
Judges were impressed by Delany College’s initiatives resulting in improvements in NAPLAN results, particularly in mathematics.
Principal Robert Muscat said it was an honour to lead a school community that recognised the need to transform students by equipping them with tools to face an ever-changing world.
“Delany College makes it a priority to ensure teaching staff have the support and expertise to accommodate student learning needs,” he said.
Delany College emphasises four Cs: creativity, critical reflection, communication and collaboration. Its strategies also ensure students, rather than content, are at the centre of learning.
