Thursday 14 November 2019 marked an important milestone for the Somerville House community as the new four-year Strategic Intent was launched to provide an overall direction of the School’s future.
Somerville House writers have performed exceptionally well in this year’s Literary Awards, sponsored by Independent Education Union (Queensland and Northern Territory), the English Teachers Association of Queensland, the Queensland Independent Education Union, James Cook University, and Penguin / Random House, Australia.
It is with a heavy heart that Somerville House farewells Head of Junior School, Mrs Arna Bennett, who will this year retire from her role of twenty-seven years at the end of Term 4.
From 2020, Somerville House is thrilled to be welcoming three recently appointed staff, a Deputy Principal, Dean of Academic Programs and a new Head of Junior School. These appointments support the School’s 2020 structure and are the first steps in the newly created strategic plan slated to be launched by Principal, Mrs Kim Kiepe in late November.
Recently our Years 10 and 11 Digital Solutions and Technologies classes attended an excursion to River City Labs (RCL), an organisation fostering growth within start-up companies solving the big problems and providing resources to empower, support and connect entrepreneurs to achieve their potential.
In a capital works project spanning the first half of the year, today Principal, Mrs Kim Kiepe and many distinguished guests celebrated the official opening of the newly refurbished Technology Services Department.
