Dear College Community
Just a short update on what is happening here at the College.
Year 12 examinations have concluded!
Our Year 10 and 11 classes have now commenced their final assessment period and will soon undertake the College’s unique ‘Head Start’ program that prepares students for Years 11 and 12.
This major College event is on Thursday 5 December at 7:00pm in our Performing Arts and Sports Centre.
You are invited to join us as we congratulate our Middle and Senior School academic, community and sports awards recipients.
Currency Creek EcoCentre news
We are excited about the expansion of the Junior School Currency Creek EcoCentre Program.
In addition to the wonderful R-6 Science, Environmental Studies and Integrated Learning Program we already run, 2020 will see the trial of a pilot program of additional visits for our Environmental Focus classes in Year 4. Our Currency Creek leaders, John Freebairn and Natalie Gilbert, have been carefully planning a program that will be published in early 2020.

Mr Andrew Panozzo
With our growing enrolments in Middle and Senior School, in addition to an increased emphasis on Mathematics and Science from universities across Australia, Investigator College recruited nationally for a highly qualified teacher who has the specialist knowledge and skills to deliver Science and Mathematics at a Senior Secondary level. As you may be aware from media reports, teachers with such qualifications are in high demand and short supply throughout Australia.
We are delighted to have appointed Mr James Panozzo to this position, commencing 2020. James is a former Investigator College Captain who holds a Bachelor of Science and a Masters of Teaching from The University of Adelaide. James is a dynamic teacher whose specialised areas include Biology/Genetics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Earth Science and Evolution.
I know you will join me in welcoming James back to Investigator College!
Mrs Belinda Delyster
Dean of Senior Students
