Quality Adventist Schools Framework

What makes a school a school? Students - yes, buildings - sure, books and computers? When all is said and done a school is not a school without teachers.

Here at Gilson College we believe the main purpose of our team is to ensure that we provide teachers with all they need to produce excellent outcomes for their students.

This is why as part of the Adventist Schools Australia network we engage in the Quality Adventist Schools Framework. We believe that Adventist schools are God's schools. As part of the Adventist network we believe that Gilson College is God's school.

The purpose of the Quality Adventist Schools (QAS) Framework is to fulfil this mandate. By creating 'a thriving Christ-centred learning community' we will provide a place whereby every student will find meaning and purpose in their life. Through this journey of school improvement, our aim is to:

  • Build a culture of improvement and excellence.
  • Provide a structure for school organisation, management and direction.
  • Create opportunities for ‘Professional Conversations’.
  • Focus on improving student outcomes.
  • Describe excellence and share best practice ideas.
  • Empower school leadership.
  • Give opportunities to celebrate progress and achievement.
  • Be evidence based to inform the school improvement plan.
  • Identify school’s resourcing needs.
  • Create evidence of meeting legislative requirements.
