Welcome to Ogilvie High School
Principal's Welcome. To Lead, To Commit, To Relate.
At Ogilvie our mission is to empower our learners to be confident, aspirational, and successful. Our values of character, community and growth guide our decisions in all aspects of life at Ogilvie. They are underpinned by the Department of Education values of aspiration, respect, courage, and growth.
We are a large urban secondary school with a healthy resource of human, finanicial and community support to best deliver outstanding learning and social outcomes to our students and their families.
At Ogilvie my job is for us to have a clear focus on what matters most in our school to get the best out of our resources with the goal of improving learning outcomes for all.
To achieve this and deliver on our mission statement we only have three focuses in our school that never change:
1. To deliver outstanding teaching pedagogy (Effective Teaching)
2. To constantly build a supportive school culture (Supportive Schools)
3. To connect and engage with our community (Connected Community)
It is my strong belief that in building and leading schools, that to move from good to great requires a constant balance of the above three foci at all times.
As part of building a supportive school culture the development of positive relationships is at the heart of our work with all learners both adult and student and we are committed to building a respectful, connected school. Our staff and students make a commitment to Being Safe, Being Respectful and Being a Learner, and we work with staff and students every day to meet these commitments.
Come and explore our school through our website (check out the tabs above), delve into our latest newsletter to get a feel for our school or keep up to date with our latest movements and achievements through social media on our facebook site.
To arrange a visit or just pop in for a chat please feel free to contact the school and make an appointment to come and see me.
We look forward to your family joining our family…
