Principal’s Formative Review

I write to advise you that, as per regular practice, Siena College Principal, Elizabeth Hanney, will undertake a Formative Review during Term 1. This is scheduled on Thursday, 16 March and Monday, 20 March 2023.

The process is structured to:

  • Provide ongoing feedback to the Principal
  • Confirm and affirm the work of the Principal
  • Encourage the Principal as a reflective practitioner
  • Identify areas in performance requiring further development
  • Provide a means of accountability to the Board and to the wider College community
  • Provide opportunity for the Board to make appropriate input into the direction of the College
  • Inform decisions about the Principal’s further professional development

The areas of focus for the review are:

  • Leadership of the Catholic faith community
  • Leadership of learning and teaching
  • Developing self and others
  • Leading improvement, innovation and change
  • Leadership of management of the College
  • Engaging and working with the community

The Review Panel that will conduct this Formative Review comprises:

  • Vicki Myers (Regional Leadership Consultant, MACS – Panel Chair, Board Chair’s nominee)
  • Margaret McKenna (Board Chair, Whitefriars College – Board Chair’s nominee)
  • Deborah Barker (Principal, St Kevin’s College – Principal’s nominee)

As part of the review process, feedback from staff will be sought via interviews and an online survey, and the panel will meet with students from different year levels.

Parents may also provide feedback to the Review Panel by requesting an interview on Thursday, 16 March or Monday, 20 March 2023. This can be done by sending an email to the Panel Chair, Ms Myers at vmyers@macs.vic.edu.au. Closing date: Tuesday, 14 March 2023.
