Dear OGA members,
Somerville House’s Principal, Kim Kiepe, has been working with stakeholder groups, including the OGA, to create an innovative new four year Strategic Intent, which aims to provide bold new direction for our School’s future.
Announced by School Council Chair, Jim Demack, at Speech Night 2019, the resulting Somerville Strategic Intent (2020 to 2023) serves to inspire, motivate and provide a clear vision and priorities for the School over the next four years. The plan includes a commitment to the School’s values, traditions and the motto Honour Before Honours.
The OGA looks forward to working with Mrs Kiepe and the Somerville community to implement her strategy, differentiating the Somerville House brand and providing a sound basis for governance and effective School Council oversight.
Mrs Kiepe invites all Old Girls to review the Strategic Intent summary in preparation for the exciting year ahead.
“It is a bold plan – but if we work together with a ‘One Somerville’ team approach, as we did in developing the strategy, I believe we will achieve great results,” Ms Kiepe says.
The Strategic Intent will offer many opportunities for Old Girls to make powerful contributions to the future of girls’ education at Somerville.
