Featherbrook College 2017
Our Inaugral Year
Welcome to our college, where students and learning are central to our culture and education philosophy. Our Prep – Year 9 students are supported in their learning through dedicated and skilful teams of teachers and where they learn in state of the art, contemporary learning community spaces. Our college proudly partners with YMCA and CERES which enables us to provide local community links and relationship building while also recognising the global context our children will be contributing to as citizens of the future. Our motto ‘Local Education, Global Future’ captures this sentiment. Welcome to Featherbrook College.
Featherbrook College enrols students from its designated neighbourhood boundaries only.

"Imagination is more important than knowledge."
"The biggest gains in terms of learning productivity will come from mobilising as yet under-utilised resources available to the education system:children, parents, families, communities. That is the ultimate goal of personalised learning: to encourage children to see themselves as co-investors...in their own learning."
Knowledge that gives you no practical purchase on the physical and social worlds beyond school is pointless.
Claxton & Lucas (2015)
"For the 21st century student, learning involves a blend of the physical and virtual environments. Education paradigms have shifted to include online learning, hybrid learning and collaborative models."
