Kelly Clayton: Today is very exciting for our school because our whole community, the families who have enrolled at Featherbrook, have all come today to meet together to enjoy the BBQ and to also join in with our partners, Ceres and YMCA, and enjoy some of the activities they’ve provided; face printing, mini ball games that the YMCA have put on, table and chair activities, but mostly they’re just enjoying being with each other as they make new friends.

We can see people gathering, chatting and having something to eat or drink. 

Kelly appears on screen again. 

Kelly: It’s part of our role, I think, as a new school in this area, that we help to broker the relationships between the community members. The Point Cook area, it’s very multi-cultural. The educational design principles are very, very clear around the learning being at the centre, and diversity being a key element of that. With diversity comes strength, comes enrichment, and it should be embraced, and in the nicest possible way exploited so that all community members really do benefit from that diversity.

We can see children playing various games and laughing excitedly. More people are gathered and engaging in conversation.

Kelly: Today I’ve been fortunate to be able to take a small group of community members (around 50) through one of the learning neighbourhoods and to understand how the design will contribute to a truly personalised learning experience. We set apart from this community event today as a staff with a renewed and collective understanding of what is ahead of us, which is very exciting.
