After 15 years of growth and expansion with Mrs Donna Anderson at the helm as Head of College, a new Principal has taken the reins at Canterbury College.
Mr Daniel Walker returns to Brisbane after three years in Adelaide as Deputy Principal of Seymour College. He brings to the College more than 22 years of teaching in independent and state school sectors, and across a broad range of academic, pastoral care, staffing, operations and administration roles.
“The College is in a great place reputation-wise as one of the most innovative independent schools and the second largest Anglican school in Queensland, and I plan to continue to grow that reputation,” Mr Walker said.
“It is a well-resourced, expansive campus, with strengths in the authentic connections between staff and students, its high standard of programs and the quality of the workforce.
“A new 2020-2024 Strategic Plan to be formulated soon means that there are great opportunities to be bold, contemporary and exciting; to rethink who we are and what we will do into the future.”
Canterbury College is an independent, co-educational Kindergarten to Year 12 school, with 1475 students and 200 staff across its 30 hectares of natural bushland, grassed ovals and landscaped grounds.
The college has gone from strength to strength in recent years, investing significantly in refurbishing existing facilities and building new ones.
In a great win for the College and the wider Logan community, they successfully tendered for the GC 2018 Commonwealth Games 400m athletics track and three squash courts.
Under construction currently is a most anticipated Aquatic and Tennis Courts Complex, featuring two pools and eight tennis courts, to be ready for the 2020 College year.
The college holds an Open Day event each term. For upcoming dates, please click here.
