A Message from the Staff

Here at Myrtle Philip we believe in collective teacher efficacy, which is why we engage in a collaborative inquiry to address the unique needs of the students in our school. "Collective Teacher Efficacy is defined as a staff's shared belief that through their collective action, they can positively influence student outcomes, including those who are disengaged." ~John Hattie
If we work together to develop our collective efficacy regarding making learning visible, we will be able to build student capacity in the competencies of critical thinking and collaboration. 
Our vision is for students to emerge as independent critical thinkers who engage in collaborative efforts, taking proactive ownership of their educational journey. At the same time, we aspire for our school community to foster an inclusive environment where every individual feels a profound sense of belonging and authenticity, enabling them to embrace and nurture their true selves.
If we commit to maintaining curiosity through the model of collaborative inquiry we will continue to inspire necessary changes and adaptations.
If we work together to develop our collective efficacy we will be able to be the influencers of student achievement.
If we learn together we will become better together.
