Principal's Review

On Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 May, a Formative Review of Mr Anthony Banks in his role as Principal of Padua College will take place.  The purpose of the review is in accordance with the contract under which Mr Banks is employed which states that “…this formative appraisal is intended to be a time of professional learning for the Principal, providing an opportunity for synthesised reflection on the early years of the contract, validated by peers.” (Clause 8.6.1)

Clause 8.5.3 states that the review provides “a non-threatening opportunity for both Principal and Church Authority to verify their perceptions of performance with those of the wider College community.” 

Padua College is currently engaged in the Catholic Education Melbourne School Improvement Framework process.  The five spheres that are the focus of this process are:

* Education in Faith

* Learning and Teaching

* Student and Staff Wellbeing

* Leadership and Management

* School Community

and these areas, along with Working with the Canonical Administrators and the College Board, will form the focus for Mr Banks’ Formative Review.



The panel that will conduct the Formative Review comprises:

* Mr Christopher Bence (nominee of the Executive Director of Catholic Education)

* Ms Victoria Myers (nominee of the Director of Catholic Education & Panel Chair)

* Mr Peter Leamon (Board Chair)

* Mr Tony Hirst (nominee of the Principal)


As part of the review process feedback from staff will be sought via interviews and an online survey.  Parents may also provide feedback to the Review Panel by requesting an interview on Tuesday 7 or Wednesday 8 May.  This can be done by sending an email to the Panel Chair, Ms Victoria Myers  prior to Monday 6 May.
