What makes a school a school? Students? Yes. Buildings? Sure. Books and computers? When all is said and done, a school is not a school without teachers.
At Carmel Adventist College we believe the main purpose of our team is to ensure that we provide our teachers with all that they need to ensure excellent outcomes for our students.
This is why we were very excited when the Quality Adventist Schools Framework (QAS Framework) was introduced in 2014. The QAS Framework is an initiative of Adventist Schools Australia (ASA) and is "based on the world’s best school improvement practice, and provides a process for schools to engage in the further strengthening of their professional learning cultures."
The four domains on which the framework is based are:
These domains (or core building blocks) were agreed upon by over 100 Adventist educators across Australia who came together to create this document. The purpose of this framework is to provide a way for the school and its community to have greater ownership of, and commitment to, the success of the school.
The QAS Framework:
Carmel College is currently developing and implementing the five year review plan in conjunction with this QAS Framework.
