Senior Executive Tour

26/06/2015
The visitors travelled from Brisbane and Cairns. On their arrival to the Torres Strait, guests participated in an inspirational and insightful cultural induction, led by Stephanie Savage and Jeff Waia.
The visiting leaders were accompanied by senior staff from Tagai State College and TSIREC to campuses at Masig, Iama, Mer, Malu Kiyay, Badhulgaw, Narupay, Waybeni Buway and Waybeni Koey.
The visit and the enhanced support for Tagai State College has catalysed new and positive opportunities, especially in the areas of information and communication technologies and facilities.
Some of the facilities in the spotlight include increased support for tuckshops upgrades, shade and playground structures and air conditioner unit replacements.
Technology is also leaping ahead. New video conference software will be rolled out this year for more effective collaboration between staff across campuses. Training will be provided for higher level ICT support across Tagai campuses, with service options to include the capacity to support users in real time via remote access.
Three out of the six senior visitors had been school principals themselves in previous roles. When the visitors reflected on their interactions with students in classrooms, what stood out was the positive behaviour and high student engagement they noticed.
David O’Hagan, Deputy Director-General, Corporate Services, and Michael O’Leary, Executive Director, Web and Digital Delivery, spent a full day at Malu Kiyay Ngurpay Lag with one of Tagai’s Associate Principals, Ken Treasure.
Michael O’Leary donated a Microsoft Surface tablet to Malu Kiyay Ngurpay Lag. Students were fascinated by the tablet and David O’Hagan’s smart wrist watch.
Tagai State College extends appreciation and thanks to the many community members, college staff and students who made the Senior Executive Tour so memorable and special.
