With the commencement of the 2012 school year, a new raft of teachers will also begin at Cornerstone Christian College, with the aim of extending the College’s subject offerings.
Due to the exciting growth of the College, nine additional teachers have been introduced to the Cornerstone Community – with many of them bringing new and specialised skills which will enhance the educational programs and opportunities for students.
Teachers for Drama, Mandarin, specialised Science, Maths, English and Art have completed their orientation at the College prior to the commencement of school. Additionally, two new Pre-Primary teachers, a new Primary teacher and a teacher librarian will be walking the corridors of Cornerstone during this coming year. All have been hand-selected for their educational excellence and experience, as well as a strong personal Christian faith.
Principal Bruce Douglas is delighted with the team that he has for the coming year.
’2012 promises to be an exciting one for us. The growth that the College has recently experienced, has allowed us to make these extensions to our program. Students, across all year groups, will be the beneficiaries of these developments. This new team of teachers and support staff will add immeasurably to the already strong team we have at Cornerstone’, he said.
Will Meyer, Andrew Cleaver, Ren Douglas, Marilyn van Beek, Brittany Haythornthwaite, Estelle Dragstra, Taryn Muir, Cindy Midgley & Mikael Sandlund will join the teaching staff. Theresa Mapstone & Karen Kirkham commence as Teacher Aides, Marion Farmer has joined the Administration team, and Caroline Lucas in the Science Lab. With the departure of only three staff at the end of 2011, it means that the educational team at Cornerstone has grown by 10. The growth of the College in terms of student numbers, as well as program development introduced by Principal Bruce Douglas, has partnered together to provide exciting times for Cornerstone.
Welcome to each of these new faces. We are so delighted that you are part of our Cornerstone Community.
