It’s always exciting to acknowledge our students when they excel and receive recognition for outstanding achievements. However, it’s not just our students who win awards. Teachers do too.

We are very privileged at CLC to have such a strong and exceptional leadership presence in our teaching and support staff. We are extremely proud when this is recognised externally, and we congratulate our Deputy Principal, Georgia Heffernan in being awarded the Menzies School Leader Fellowship. One of only four other recipients across the state, this is a true testament to the talent and passion Georgia has in continuing to expand her knowledge and leadership skills, which we will all no doubt benefit from.

Established in 1979 to continue the legacy of Sir Robert Menzies, Australia’s longest serving Prime Minister, the Menzies Foundation has a 40-year track record in backing and supporting the development of outstanding leaders.

The Fellowship recognises exceptional school leaders and aims to support the development of their leadership capabilities within their schools.

As Catholic Ladies' College continues to build excellence in learning, I am honoured to have been awarded a Menzies School Leader Fellowship.

– Georgia Heffernan, Deputy Principal

“Through a focus on assessment and feedback our goal is to strengthen each student’s belief in their ability to learn. The next three years will be transformational for our learning community as we become members of the University of Melbourne Network of Schools and engage with Laureate Professor John Hattie.”

The Menzies Foundation will invest $150 000 into Georgia’s Fellowship, where she will undertake a bespoke leadership and professional development program over the next 3 years. This is an exceptional privilege, which will not only benefit Georgina personally in her role at CLC, she is also excited to be able to share her learnings with our teaching and support, and of course our young future student leaders.

Join us in congratulating Georgia on this outstanding achievement.
