Genesis Christian College – Community Survey

Recently the College facilitated a Community Survey as part of the final stages of our Strategic Planning process. The survey was completed by a significant portion of our parent body and I would like to thank the many families that took time to complete the survey. The survey results have achieved three critical outcomes: valuable information for the College; a benchmark for measuring growth, and future improvement and important feedback on the five key strategic priorities that were identified through the development of the new Strategic Plan.

Below is a summary of the survey results:

  • 84% – families responded that their child/ren is/are happy at Genesis Christian College
  • 85% – families responded that they would be likely to recommend Genesis Christian College
  • 84% – families responded that they were satisfied with the overall education at the College
  • 90% of families believe the College has met most of their expectations

Additionally:

  • Our community indicated that Genesis creates a safe and inclusive environment for students and that teachers are caring, nurturing, professional and supportive.
  • Our community expressed the importance of ensuring that the education that is offered is future orientated, equipping and preparing students for the jobs of the future.
  • The Survey revealed the importance of teachers being both engaged and passionate about the subject matter being taught.
  • Also highlighted was the strength of our Pastoral Care program with students feeling supported and genuine care being offered.
  • Our community highlighted an opportunity that exists to further strengthen the sense of community across the campus, particularly amongst parents. Responders acknowledged that COVID has had an impact on our ability to connect in normal ways.
  • Parents expressed the importance of the consistent enforcement of discipline and behavioural expectations.
  • The following Strategic Priorities received overwhelming support:

– Robust faith framework

– Future focussed learning

– Engaging culture

– Inspiring staff

– Campus development

We are blessed to be a part of a rich and thriving community but always acknowledge that there is room for improvement and further development. We look forward to sharing with you the new Strategic Plan at the commencement of 2022 and thank you again to the many parents that completed the survey. We are so thankful to you for partnering with us in this important undertaking of nurturing and equipping our young people.

Blessings,

Mr Paul Sterling
