Principal Welcome

I am honoured to be the Foundation Principal of Evelyn Scott School. As a Future Focused school, we will learn through inquiry-based approaches that connects learners and their learning to the world. We will lead our community to engage with the ACT Future of Education Strategy and all of its possibilities. Contemporary learning means preparing for a shifting future that requires skills and knowledge, citizenship, connection to culture and the environment and capacity to solve complex problems with creative approaches.

We are clearly very privileged to have such an inspirational trailblazer as Dr Evelyn Scott as our school’s namesake. We have been fortunate to maintain this connection by engaging Ms Charmaene Scott, Dr Evelyn Scott’s daughter, as one of our School Board members.

In February 2021, we welcomed all of our students and families to Evelyn Scott School. We look forward to welcoming our high school learners when we open our high school at the beginning of 2023.

Jackie Vaughan, Foundation Principal

The Future of Education Strategy outlines the plan for education in the ACT for the next decade. It is based on what the ACT Government has heard through a conversation with the ACT community and an analysis of issues by a range of experts. The Strategy is based on four foundations and four principles for implementation that form a 'roadmap' for the future.

Future Focused Learning at Evelyn Scott School

Put simply, the education that served us as either Baby Boomers or Generation X/Y no longer serves our children. Contemporary learning means preparing for a shifting future that requires skills and knowledge, citizenship, connection to culture and the environment and capacity to solve complex problems with creative approaches.
