Principal’s Welcome Message
As we begin the 2021 academic year I would like to extend a special welcome to our new families and welcome back all of our returning families as well. My vision is always to put our students first. My belief is that all students can learn and as educators we need to discover how each child learns in order to differentiate our instruction to support their diverse learning needs. In a collaborative effort, we want all of the children in our care to thrive in all ways possible.
My hope is that we will all work together to provide a learning environment that is positive, respectful, inspiring and safe, as well as a fun place for students to grow and excel. To instil a love of learning, we our served by highly qualified, enthusiastic and dedicated teachers whose professional expertise provides our students with the knowledge and skills necessary to become active 21st-century learners.
At Miller, with strong community links we are committed to delivering a quality education to develop the academic capability and individual talents, interests and abilities of our students. This is further reflected by the quality of our curricular and extra-curricular activities on offer, our strong values and traditions and the wonderful achievements of our students and staff. Learning is enriched through exceptionally active sporting, debating, creative and performing arts programs that provide opportunities for students to achieve personal excellence.
As a part of our involvement in the Department of Education’s Educational Pathways Policy Pilot and our School to Work program, your child will benefit from strong links with tertiary institutions and TAFE. These connections will assist in providing your child with the best possible opportunities for their post-schooling career.
Our wellbeing programs encourage students to celebrate their differences, develop resilience and confidence and to creatively work together to solve the problems faced in life. Our Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) initiative engages and sets high expectations for student behaviour and nurtures their personal and social skills as they grow into responsible, articulate, well-adjusted, caring and successful young adults.
As a school we are exceptionally proudly of our student leadership programs that build confidence and inter-personal skills. Students are empowered to lead in every year group and have an active voice in the school and community.
I am very proud to be principal of Miller Technology High School and for us to work together to provide your child with a caring and nurturing learning environment that enables them to achieve their very best and that celebrates and rewards personal success.
Thank you for showing an interest in our school and I am look forward to personally welcoming you at some time in the not too distant future.
Dr Ken Edge
