A message from the Principal May 2016

Michael Rathborne


Last year in I referenced significant change that had occurred at the school in the previous twelve months and it is equally true that this change has continued at Uralla Central School. We have in that time embarked upon a number of innovative arrangements to strengthen the structure of the school to ensure that we are continually evaluating what we do and how we do it. Our flexible delivery models have seen the creation of a Junior School (K-4), Middle School (5-8) and a Senior School (9-Academy II). We have moved to acquire the resources to fully implement a ‘Coding and Robotics’ program to embed STEM within the school. The school was also one of 15 schools across NSW selected to participate in the ‘Schools of the Future’ program in 2016. The purpose of these initiatives is to create a culture where each and every member of the school is continually improving and then none of us is standing still in the mistaken belief that we cannot get better. We can provide facilities and opportunities but in the end the willingness to accept these is the choice of each individual. As always I urge all members of our community to aspire to this belief of self-betterment and to display compassion, dignity and humanity in all that they do. As Uralla men and women we should always stand tall and walk proud.
