Trustees visit to Kildare College

Earlier this month, the Trustees of Kildare Ministries travelled to Adelaide to visit Kildare College. This visit, which takes place every four years, is a unique opportunity for the Trustees to immerse themselves in the Kildare community, gain insights into their collective goals, and understand the inner workings of the College. The day was filled with exploration, community building, and delectable treats prepared by the talented Year 10 Food and Hospitality class. 


During their visit, the Trustees focussed on various aspects of the College. They delved into the Masterplan initiatives, gaining an understanding of where these developments will take place at Kildare. The Trustees sought to gain insights into their future direction, funding challenges, demographics, and enrolments. The Trustees were keen on understanding how Kildare expresses the Vision, Mission, and Values of Kildare Ministries and their presence allowed them to connect deeply with the College’s environment and community. 


A highlight identified by the Trustees, was the opportunity to interact with our College Captains for 2023, Jessica and Zahra, and our Prefects, Tamsyn, Emily, Megha, Abigael, Ivana, and Grace. Over morning tea, they engaged in meaningful conversations and heard the voices of our students on various topics, solidifying our commitment to a student-centred approach. 


This visit was a joyful occasion, allowing us to showcase the vibrant spirit of Kildare College and share our exciting plans for the future, including the much-anticipated Performing Arts Centre. It reaffirmed the strong bonds within our community and our dedication to providing an exceptional education for our students.


Thanks to all at Kildare College for your generous hospitality.
