On Monday 20 March, Clonard Principal, Luci Quinn was honoured with the ACEL (Australian Council for Educational Leaders) Fellowship Award at a formal ceremony held in Melbourne.
Luci was one of only ten educational leaders in Victorian to receive the Award for 2022.
ACEL Fellowship is a special category of membership awarded annually to members who have made an outstanding contribution over a period of time to the improvement of student and organisational outcomes.
Learning and leadership have always been at the heart of Luci’s 27 years in senior leadership in Catholic education. Her leadership journey has been shaped by experiences as Principal in three diverse school settings across Victoria and time spent in system leadership. She has held governance roles in education and health and lectured in Religious Education. She is a member of the PAVCSS Executive and Faith and Enrichment Committee, supporting the work of her colleagues in Catholic secondary schools.
Luci has completed post graduate studies and credentialling to extend her interest and expertise in building capacity through coaching and instructional leadership practices. Luci is a trained coach with GCI. She has a strong commitment to school improvement and finding systems that harness the collective energy of all within the College community. She is curious about new leadership practices such as leading learning ecosystems and leading with presence.
Luci and the team at Clonard are part of the New Metrics for Success partnership with the University of Melbourne working with schools around Australia developing new metrics to assess, credential and measure student, school and system success. Luci strongly values collegial networks and is especially passionate and committed to supporting and mentoring aspiring and early career leaders.
