As we approach the celebration of 100 years on the site on which Fairholme College stands, and 109 years since our foundation at Spreydon, it is fitting that I present to you our Strategic Plan for 2015 – 2017.
For over a century, Fairholme has been empowering young women by providing an education that prepares them for the future. To that end, our previous Strategic Plan presented our Vision; Values – Christ-Centred Faith, Collaboration, Enjoyment, Seeking Excellence and Respect; and our Goals to develop a vibrant learning community.
In our strategic plan for 2015 – 2017, we are expanding that vision and building on those values by ‘Stretching the Boundaries’; optimising the way we learn, teach, live and create – with the aim of Fairholme College being the all-girls’ school of choice. This Plan outlines our goals and the strategies to accomplish them. We commend it to you.
