The future is bright at Canterbury College
2019 saw a significant change at the top at Canterbury College. After almost 15 years of growth and expansion with Mrs Donna Anderson at the helm as Head of College, a new principal has recently taken the reins. Mr Daniel Walker returned to Brisbane after three years in Adelaide as Deputy Principal of Seymour College.
When asked what drew him to Canterbury, Mr Walker spoke about the beauty and strengths of the college, the second-largest Anglican school in Queensland.
“It is a well-resourced, expansive campus, with its biggest strengths in the authentic connections between staff and students, its high standard of programs and the quality of the workforce.”
He brings to the college more than 22 years of teaching across the 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 Queensland’s most innovative independent schools and I plan to continue to grow that reputation across everything we do.”
“A new 2020–2024 Strategic Plan was formulated late in 2019 and includes great opportunities to be bold, contemporary and exciting; it rethinks who we are and what we will do into the future.”
“Canterbury has undisputed, considerable assets in its academic, sporting, arts and pastoral care offerings. My challenge is to build upon these strong foundations to take the college into the future, with world-ready curriculum and skill-building opportunities to enable our students to be truly global workers, entrepreneurs and citizens.”
