Earlier in the year, Microsoft in Education Worldwide announced the inclusion of Ormiston College as an Associate Showcase School. In October the College gained fully-fledged leadership status as a Microsoft World Showcase School, officially recognised as a mentor to other schools on a global level.
College Dean of E-Learning, Tamara Sullivan, a Microsoft Innovation Education Expert, was one of only six educators selected to represent the College and Australia at the Microsoft Global Educator Exchange (E2) held in Seattle in April this year. Furthermore, in November it was announced that three additional members of Ormiston College staff have been recognised as Educator Experts: Head of Junior School, Travis Goulter, Head of Mathematics, Dr Ian Thomson and Science Teacher, Annette McArthur, making Ormiston College the only Microsoft Showcase School in Australia to have four Innovation Educator Experts.
In the past two years the College has received recognition both nationally and internationally through its presentations at various seminars and conferences. Being regarded as a global leader among this elite group of leading-edge schools from around the world is indeed an honour for the College.
