Guest Speaker: Mr Mike Ennis
(School improvement review officer)
Mike Ennis is known to many of us as a highly respected colleague, as a teacher, a Guidance Officer, a Senior Guidance Officer or a Principal. Mike’s career with Education Queensland began as a high school teacher, in south-east Queensland and in the far north, before he trained as a Guidance Officer. He served in country schools and regional centres in Guidance roles before winning many positions as a school Principal throughout the state. From 2017 to 2018, he was the principal at Aurukun SS P-12 on Cape York. The unmistakable stamp that Mike left on each school was his intrinsic and honest respect for all members of the communities in which he was involved. Mike will share his reflections on his time in those roles and some of his principles that are common to shaping change in a wide range of school circumstances.
The QGCA Annual General Meeting (AGM) allows members to review the past year, elect office-bearers, and ask any questions regarding QGCA. Please send any business items to the QGCA secretary at least 14 days prior to the AGM via firstname.lastname@example.org It also provides an opportunity to rejuvenate the QGCA state executive by nominating colleagues to be on the executive. It is important to have fresh faces, new ideas and contagious enthusiasm to keep the QGCA dynamic, vital and current in the ever-changing world of guidance. If you would like to consider nominating for the executive, or can’t be there in person, nomination forms and executive position descriptions are available on the links below. After the AGM, why not enjoy the sights and sounds of beautiful Southbank on an autumnal Friday night? Encourage some colleagues to come for an enjoyable evening.
Free car parking is available from 4.30pm (see map). If asked by security parking attendants, inform them that you are attending a function at “66 on Ernest” Restaurant.
