Representative Council
underwent a major restructure.
For many years Taylors had only
one SRC group comprising
between 10 -14 students. In 2011
Taylors
had six SRC groups – Culture
and Community, Sport and
Healthy Living, communication,
Social Justice, Music and
Performing Arts and
Environment. Each group
involved between 5 – 10 student
leaders guided by a teacher
mentor.
The change allowed greater
involvement of our students in
decision making, team work and
collaboration. Students and staff
enjoyed greater social
interaction through these
portfolios. Some of the key
achievements of each team were
the coordination of the
multicultural festival and school
formal, development of healthy
living promotional materials
targeting nutrition and smoking,
coordination of the Glee club
and fundraising for the Building
Futures initiative.

Staff information
All Taylors College teaching staff are V.I.T registered. All support staff must maintain current Working with
Children Check. Professional Learning is a key component of a V.I.T registered teacher. Taylors is committed to
providing opportunities for staff to develop skills in new learning technologies and developments in subject
curriculum content. As in international school staff are kept abreast of changes in the international education
sector.
Professional learning takes place via external presenters, attendance at national and international
conferences, representation on key education boards and participation in workshops. Taylors College continues to
provide opportunities for student teachers to undergo teacher placement and to experience the difference an
international student classroom offers. Our staff represent diverse cultural backgrounds. Currently there are no
indigenous members of staff.
Satisfaction
Each year the school undertakes a student satisfaction survey. Parents are provided with details about how to
follow up any concerns. Parent feedback is encouraged and valued.
Building Futures
Taylors College staff and students continue to fundraise for Building Futures project with PLAN Australia.
Over the years our fundraising efforts have allowed the building of schools across the world. In 2011 a girls
college in Niger was built. This was the sixth school built. Other countries benefitting from the Building
Futures campaign include Indonesia, Vietnam, and China. Students fundraising in 2011 included movie nights
and sale of chocolates.
