From our earliest days, the School has provided excellent education and opportunities for students. Over the past 175 years, the School has sought to remain dynamic and relevant, with graduates ready to contribute to an ever-changing society. Launceston Church Grammar School’s 2021 – 2026 Strategic Plan calls us to continually enhance, evolve and embed excellent education and opportunities. We will be agile and progressive across the School, focusing on the education and community we provide for our people, and the responsible use of our systems and resources.
The Strategic Plan builds on the achievements of the previous plan, which included:
- Providing globally relevant education through the introduction of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years’ Programme, a unique Aviation Programme and new spaces such as Faulkner Park and Café 1846;
- Engaging with our School Community by involving our community as experts in classroom learning, an Entrepreneurship Club and Leadership Lunches;
- Offering a Tasmanian experience by developing the Outdoor Education programme and a student designed and developed Mountain Bike Track at the Senior Campus;
- Being environmentally responsible by teaching sustainability across the School; and
- Building a sustainable school by identifying the optimal school size and launching a tax- deductible Scholarship Fund.
As a School, our people, particularly our students, are why we exist. Every person in our community, from our staff, to our parents and grandparents, past and present, along with our alumni, plays a vital part in contributing to the excellent education and opportunities provided. The School will continue to advance through the responsible use of resources and systems as we seek to equip this generation of students and the next.
This Strategic Plan has been a collaboration with the School and its wider community. We are very grateful for the input, feedback and effort that many people have provided to bring this plan together.
We honour our past students, staff, board members, parents, grandparents, and carers by the way we now build on all that we have inherited.
We will continue to strive to be a community which is small enough for students to be known and large enough to provide abundant opportunities. We aim for students to be nurtured, challenged, and inspired to be future-ready graduates who are known for their courage, curiosity, creativity, and compassion.
This Strategic Plan cascades down into a suite of more detailed operational plans and progress will be captured at the end of each year in the School’s Annual Report.
As you read the Strategic Plan, we hope you are as excited about the future as we are.
