Throughout 2015 the School celebrated its Centenary Year with a range of activities including a re- enactment of the first day of the School, Celebration Concerts, a Homecoming Weekend, a Gala Concert and Ball, and announcement of Teams of the Century. The provision of this Community Report, on the activities of Ivanhoe Grammar School during the 2015 academic year including its Centenary Celebrations, forms part of a series of communications with parents and other stakeholders within the School Family to assist them in understanding our operations, achievements and outcomes. The School’s Strategic Plan, completed in 2010, is supported by a detailed Action (Operational) Plan outlining, within key principle areas, objectives and targets in relation to the period of the plan (2011 2016). Measurement where possible and reporting to progress are key features of the Action (Operational) Plan. The School’s Strategic Plan outlines the vision and philosophical foundation covering the period to 2016 and will provide the basis for the continuing provision of outstanding education into our next 100 years of existence. As part of the School’s Strategic Plan, ‘Vision 2016’ provides a forward thinking curriculum structure for the school with an emphasis on continued academic outcomes, the quality of teaching, a commitment to Positive Education and the development of Global Citizens.

Implicit in the Plan are key educational trends and expectations to which the school should respond. These include: •

The need for a broad education that encompasses academic, cultural, physical, international and spiritual goals

The importance of understanding how learning occurs and how to maximise its effectiveness for each individual

The changing role of the Teacher to a Learning Facilitator who helps students understand the process of learning and, through this, develop interpersonal, cross-cultural and teamwork skills

The importance of continuing to build the capacity of staff

The use of technology to enrich the learning environment

The increasing flexible use of time as a component of learning

The need for effective pastoral care in the context of rapid social change

The Board of Governors and I are committed to working in partnership with all stakeholders within the School Family to maintain and strengthen our reputation as one of Australia’s leading contemporary Schools.

Our emphasis on community, mutual respect, support and partnerships is guided by our motto fidelis usque ad mortem (faithful even unto death) and the importance we place on the Ivanhoe Grammar School Family.

Ivanhoe Grammar School will strive to: •

Exist as a co-educational community in which the place of girls and boys, men and women is equally valued

Nurture the School’s Christian values in the Anglican tradition


Be a place where students feel safe, valued and listened to, recognising the role that these elements play in enhancing academic performance

To be a community of learning that develops in students the skills and attitudes that will prepare them for the challenges and responsibilities of adult citizenship and in which the development of individual character and personal achievement by all students is encouraged and celebrated.

Produce a learning environment that sets clear educational expectations for students within our broad offering, based on individual needs

Infuse innovation, creativity and technology into all aspects of its program, while valuing history and tradition

Our Mission is underpinned by our Organisational and Community Values.

Create in students and staff, international consciousness and global competency; critical elements for a successful and fulfilling future in a globalised world

Emphasise the importance of ongoing professional growth for staff, by incorporating it as a measurable outcome within each individual’s development plan

Maintain a leadership culture that allows every member of its community to excel in their chosen area of endeavour.

Page | 6


We acknowledge the diversity of voices within our community and grant each voice the encouragement and freedom to be heard.


We stress the importance of a responsible attitude to School life. Through responsibility and accountability, respect for others and for the environment, we can truly enjoy a sense of freedom and the opportunities that freedom affords.


We wish to be compassionate and considerate in our interactions with each other, including those from different cultural backgrounds, valuing diversity and understanding the importance of developing an international mindset.


We respect self-discipline, effort and commitment in all pursuits and approach learning with thoughtfulness and curiosity.


We strive for honesty and integrity in all dealings with and between students and staff.


We celebrate the range and variety of experiences on offer at our School.


We will provide a safe working environment without risk to health within the Ivanhoe community.


We commit ourselves to serving our wider community and building partnerships to benefit members of the School Family. We also share a commitment, beyond academic excellence, to personal development and student responsibility through our membership of the Round Square International Network of Schools, whose IDEALS are characterised as Internationalism, Democracy, Environmental Awareness, Adventure, Leadership and Service.

KEY OBJECTIVES Four key objectives underpin the operation of the School in light of our Strategic Plan. These Objectives are:





Provide a stimulating, caring educational environment within and beyond the classroom where it is safe to take risks and where everyone is open to, and respectful of, the ideas and opinions of others.

The School Family is paramount to the function and operation of Ivanhoe Grammar School. In order to enhance connection to the School Family, we will maintain and strengthen the culture of the School as defined by our values.

Page | 8

Employ, retain and professionally develop our staff, given their key role in the success of the School’s overall mission.

Ensure the financial strength of the School in order to support sustainable growth, including improvements in facilities and programs.

VALUE ADDED The School’s skilled staff take seriously the commitment to provide a broad and balanced education for all students knowing that on leaving school they will live and work in a diverse global community. An Ivanhoe education begins in the classroom where a love of learning is fostered, personal best is promoted and students are provided with the critical skills to become confident and independent learners. It then moves well beyond four walls and academic excellence, to personal growth, commitment and responsibility. The School’s educational philosophy is underpinned by the ambitious goals of Round Square. As a member of Round Square, a worldwide network of like-minded schools, Ivanhoe offers its students many opportunities that focus on the Round Square IDEALS pillars of: •

International Understanding


Environmental Awareness




We believe that this emphasis, together with full engagement in the academic, co-curricular and sporting program, develops in students the foundation to make valued contributions to the world in which we live. In particular it promotes: •

The mindset to embrace a lifetime of learning

The development of a set of values and a code of ethics

Responsibility, respect and care for humanity

The skills and confidence needed for effective service and leadership

A global perspective on society and the environment

Not all of these elements of our broad and balanced education can be easily measured but through qualitative feedback from students, both present and past, we are confident that an Ivanhoe education adds value.

Launched in October 2008, Vision 2016 provides a forward thinking curriculum structure for the School. Key features of Vision 2016 are: •

A curriculum centred restructure of the School

A common experience for all Ivanhoe Grammar School students

An emphasis on continuing to improve academic outcomes

An emphasis on the quality of teaching

A continued major international focus

Maximising the benefits of our multi-campus status

The curriculum relationship between campuses is built around a common curriculum at all levels of the School: •

The Senior Studies Program (Years 10 – 12) implemented in 2010 was further refined during 2011 by broadening the subject offerings available to students and includes studies in both the Victorian Certificate of Education and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. All students in Year 10 undertake VCE studies.

The Middle Years Program (Years 7– 9), encompasses the current innovative Year 9 out-of-classroom experience ’A World of Experiences’ and extends to embrace a common and broad Middle Years Philosophy and Curriculum, which was introduced in February 2011.

Common Primary Curriculum (Prep – Year 6) for students on both campuses. An important aspect of Vision 2016 is its emphasis on continued academic outcomes (building on our already strong base) and the quality of teaching. Research shows that in terms of the influence on student outcomes, teachers are by far the most important single influence. Vision 2016 continues to develop the already high standard of teaching at the School through a series of initiatives including effective teacher appraisal, goal setting and targeted professional development.

Our challenge is to ensure that the broad curriculum: •

Is academically rigorous and challenging

Fosters personal, moral and spiritual awareness and understanding

Develops a breadth of life skills

Balances essential knowledge with a choice of pathways including the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and the International Baccalaureate (IB)

Is underpinned by our membership of Round Square

Page | 10

The significant focus provided by the School in terms of an international outlook will continue under Vision 2016. In addition to the current initiatives that exist (Round Square, our involvement in Cambodia, increasing internationalising of curriculum content), a number of initiatives such as Australian and Global Perspectives at Year 10, and extending curriculum links to the Round Square

Pillars (International Understanding, Democracy, Environmental Awareness, Adventure, Leadership and Service), the introduction of the Round Square IDEALS Award, the launch of the Ivanhoe Diploma and work towards accreditation with the Council of International Schools were implemented, reviewed and strengthened during the year. Ivanhoe Grammar School seeks to be seen as ‘a National School providing an outward-looking curriculum that is essentially Australian, for a diverse student body’. A number of Reviews took place in the past 12 months and the recommendations will be implemented in the years ahead. These Reviews include the following:

LANGUAGES REVIEW A Languages Review was undertaken in 2015. The scope of this review covered the teaching of languages in both primary and secondary classes, pedagogy and style of learning. Years 5, 7 and 10 students were surveyed to determine their interest and motivation in learning languages, the languages they would like to learn given a free choice and in the case of Year 10, why they had chosen to continue or not with their language, given that it was no longer a compulsory subject. Languages taught in feeder schools were reviewed along with language subject enrolment trends at Ivanhoe Grammar School but also statewide and nationally.

TARGETED TEACHING REVIEW The second review undertaken in 2015 was Targeted Teaching - A Review of Provision for Students’ Individual Differences in Years 7 – 12. This review covered education for students requiring learning support and gifted and talented. The report was broken into several parts so it not only considered current regulations and expectations described in Disability Standards for Education, the Nationally Consistent collection of Data for Students with a Disability and Student Diversity and the Australian Curriculum (ACARA 2013), it also looked at recent research, recommended approaches and other documents such as Aiming High - A strategy for gifted and talented children and young people 2014 – 2019 (DEECD, State Government Victoria 2014). Recommendations were made on our future approach, processes and procedures, learning support, catering for gifted and talented students and professional learning for staff. Teaching and learning in the 21st Century has changed. Combine this with the knowledge that effective teachers are the second most important factor affecting student outcomes and the importance of quality teacher professional learning at Ivanhoe Grammar School becomes paramount. Staff at Ivanhoe Grammar School are fortunate to be well supported with professional learning

STAFF PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT opportunities and as a School, we are well on the way to having a vibrant professional learning culture. To assist Ivanhoe Grammar School teachers with clarity of what good practice is, in 2015 the Ivanhoe Grammar School Professional Teaching Standards were developed. The standards echo the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) National Standards and the Victoria Institute of Teachers (VIT) Standards but also include specific elements that reflect the culture and practice of our School. The standards are deliberately aspirational in nature so all teachers are encouraged to be lifelong learners. One of the most powerful ways to improve teaching outcomes is to give teachers specific and actionable feedback about their practice. Teachers have been shown to learn best when development opportunities are tailored to their individual needs. Recent Australian research has found that successful systems of feedback and appraisal can increase teacher effectiveness by as much as 30 per cent. Given this compelling evidence a process called Appraisal for Growth has been developed for all teaching staff and leaders of our School that incorporates the Ivanhoe Grammar School Professional Teaching Standards. In 2016, the implementation of the Appraisal for Growth has successfully begun with key leaders in our school. All key leaders have also begun formal in house Appraiser training as they will be the vital link if we are to achieve supportive, collaborative growth for our teaching staff. The Appraisal for Growth at Ivanhoe Grammar School will be a key component of enhancing and maintaining a culture of continuous improvement. It will contribute towards creating a ‘place that buzzes’. A thriving community where staff are challenged in how they think and work, where collaborative growth is embedded and the norm. The Ivanhoe Diploma was formally launched in 2015 by Professor John McKenzie. It acknowledges the diverse learning of students at Ivanhoe Grammar School and moves students beyond

CIS INTERNATIONAL CERTIFICATION Confirming our commitment to International Education and the development of Global Citizens, Ivanhoe Grammar School committed to, and attained International Certification in 2015. This certification recognises the delivery of high quality international programs in schools around the world which enables students and alumni to be active participants and leaders in a rapidly changing and interdependent world. Staff across the school will continue to work in teams reviewing, improving and refining our International Programs throughout 2016 as we aim to ensure all students of Ivanhoe Grammar School graduate as Global Citizens.

IVANHOE DIPLOMA academic excellence, to personal development and responsibility through activities beyond the classroom. It acknowledges the pillars of the Round Square IDEALS and includes other facets of School life that make an education at Ivanhoe special. The overriding goal of the Ivanhoe Diploma is to provide an opportunity for every student to develop as a whole person, to understand the importance of giving to others, and to develop critical thinking about complex local and global issues. A student who is recognised by being awarded an Ivanhoe Citizenship Diploma has met outcomes in the areas of: •

Creativity; thinking or behaving imaginatively to develop ideas and express something original and of value

Action; building the body and soul through physical activity and adventure

Leadership; empowering others, mentoring, inspiring; leaders reflect on how they lead

Civic Engagement; encompassing service but not limited to it; a combination of individual and collective actions that address issues of civic

or global concern •

Intercultural Understanding; combining Internationalism, intercultural awareness and engagement

The Ivanhoe Diploma was awarded to a number of students in 2014, but will be officially launched at the beginning of 2015. The focus of the Diploma is not on the activities undertaken, but the learning attained. Students must meet a series of outcomes in each key area, keep an e-portfolio of their activities and finally meet with a panel to determine if all outcomes have been met. Fourteen inaugural recipients of the Ivanhoe Diploma were recognised and acknowledged at final awards assemblies at the end of the year.

All staff members employed by the School are registered in accordance with the requirements of the Victorian Institute of Teaching. A full list of the teaching staff, together with their qualifications, can be found at the end of this document.

The School continues to enjoy strong enrolment numbers with over 2000 students across the three campuses. With most enrolment places allocated in our key point of entry, Year 7 2015, there are still just under 700 students across the campuses who are listed on the Schools’ Enrolment Waiting List for 2017 and a similar number on the lists for 2018, indicating a high degree of parent satisfaction with the School.

During 2015 all teaching staff were involved in a range of professional development/learning programs. Professional development included in-house training, workshops and local, interstate and overseas conferences. The proportion of teaching staff retained at the end of 2015 was 92 per cent, with the average attendance rate (based on the average number of days attended per member of the teaching staff) during 2015 being 97.4 per cent. The School spent $186,051.00 on professional development for teaching staff in 2015 and the average expenditure per teacher was $830.00.

Page | 14

The external interest in the School has never been greater with record numbers of prospective families attending Open Days on all campuses which is a reflection of the reputation that the School enjoys both within our local community and our wider feeder area. On interviewing students and teachers, a high level of satisfaction is noted in their responses. Exit interviews are conducted with staff and every Year 12 student has a discussion lunch with the Principal and Head of School. Year 12 students are encouraged to undertake the Year 12 Exit Survey. In addition, Principal’s Student Forums are held throughout the year to discuss issues of major.
