In recognition of the College’s progressive and innovative approaches to the day-to-day learning of students, the College has once again been recognised nationally as a Winner of the Innovative School Award by the Educator Magazine for the second year running.

The Educator’s Innovative Schools Report is designed to profile the top schools across the country that are achieving educational excellence in the Kindergarten to Year 12 sector. It highlights those schools working to equip their students with the tools that will help them confidently tackle future workforces.

At Sheldon College, the Student Exit Outcomes are underpinned by the College’s Learning and Innovation for a New Queensland (LINQ) Framework, which facilities the convergence of pedagogy, technology and space (digital and physical) and assists in the development of innovative academic programs.

The College’s staff often canvas industry forecasts and future-focused workforce reports such as the Gartner ‘Hype Cycle’ Updates. The team have been following the Hype Cycle for Drones and Mobile Robots as it provides the necessary insights in developing an innovative approach to curriculum.

The College’s recent partnership with Dr Catherine Ball, founder of the World of Drones, drone expert and Associate Professor, ensures the embedding of drones and robots within our curriculum solves real-world problems and provides students insight into the revolution of industries and business processes yet to be realised.

Additionally, as the College is an Apple Distinguished School it really does continue to lead and innovate in technology infrastructure and academic programs within a vibrant learning environment.

“Sheldon College continuously strives to be leaders in this field,” stated Founder and Principal/CEO, Dr Lyn Bishop OAM.

“The Academic staff uncompromisingly demonstrate one of the College’s core values of Continuous Improvement by designing and delivering world-class learning experiences for all students.”

  “The College can confidently say that its young people revel in the potential depth they get to explore throughout the countless number of innovative and strategically planned activities that are organised by quality educational professionals,” she added.
