Welcome to Semester II at Radford College. This year has been a time of celebration of the thirty years since our Foundation. It is a time to reflect with thankfulness on the dedication of those who established the College and who built up its character and traditions. Radford is now recognised throughout the country for our commitment to academic success, balanced by an abundant co-curricular program and a faithful pursuit of service and compassion for the community around us.
Building on such firm foundations, the College now looks to the future. The newly completed Senior School ushers in a 21st century approach to learning.
The plethora of educational literature on 21st century thinkers emphasise a range of qualities that our future will need: open mindedness; the ability to work collaboratively with others; to engage in problem solving; to analyse and integrate knowledge; to think creatively and imaginatively; to apply knowledge to respond to emerging needs and trends; and to communicate accurately, clearly and effectively. Our approach needs to evolve to meet these challenges and to give our students the best opportunity strongly to engage with their preferred future.
The new Senior School building provides three tiers of open plan “learning commons” that will provide flexibility and choice for students as their needs vary during their senior years. There are five new classrooms, a superb 210-seat lecture theatre, a Senior Student IT Room, student support services and amenities, all of which is furnished with careful attention to utility and aesthetics. These facilities provide far more than a Common Room for our senior students. It will be a place where 21st century learning can be fostered.
To mark our 30th Anniversary, the Radford Collegians have funded a brilliant art installation by renowned Canberra artist, Robert Foster. A metal globe of the earth now hangs in the capacious 9m void space, reminding students of their obligations to care for the earth and imagine their place in forging its future.
The new Senior School building completes the Radford learning framework set in place by our ELC and Junior School, where students are encouraged to develop inquiring minds and compassionate spirits. The future of the College continues to be exciting.
