Sunshine Coast-based educator recognised as industry top performer

Pacific Lutheran College’s Bronwyn Dolling has made this year’s The Educator Hot List

Online PR News – 20-August-2020 – St Leonards, NSW – A Sunshine Coast-based educator has just been recognised in a prestigious list of Australia’s most influential K-12 educators.

Pacific Lutheran College’s Bronwyn Dolling has been included in The Educator’s annual Hot List report. This prestigious list celebrates the professionals who represent the cutting edge of educational excellence in Australia.

Dolling has established Pacific Lutheran College as an innovative, dynamic, and progressive kindergarten-to-year-12 institution that is underpinned by the values and traditions of excellence of Lutheran schooling across Australia. Principal at Pacific for nearly two decades, this well-respected leader inspires and empowers staff to draw on best practices from international educational research in curriculum design, structure, and delivery – all while maintaining a focus on developing young people to be compassionate, deep thinking, and socially just with the confidence and knowledge to tackle real-world challenges.

Under Dolling’s charge, the physical and virtual learning spaces at Pacific Lutheran College have been enhanced over the last 12 months to provide flexible learning spaces to support a personalised, integrated approach to teaching and learning. A new building that provides for both reception and administration has also been completed. Meanwhile, the recent establishment of a STEM classroom and media studies program have increased student options. Also introduced last year was a new learning management system. This plus the rapid upskilling in early 2020 provided a firm foundation for staff to facilitate online learning through early Term 2.

“From an overwhelming number of nominations, 75 professionals who have made a significant contribution to the K-12 education space over the past 12 months have been selected in The Educator’s fifth annual Hot List report,” says The Educator editor Brett Henebery. “The winners – from principals and head teachers through to school managers and other industry figures – have been recognised for their outstanding work in delivering the highest-quality educational experiences possible to all students, especially during these unprecedented times.”
