Today, we saw the official launch of the Delany Connective, a connected classroom to support new and innovative teaching and learning methodologies at the College.

On arrival, the Delany Choir treated guests to a moving rendition of the Deers Cry.

In his welcome, Principal, Peter Wade, quoted directly from Robert Fulgham's, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten.  He spoke about the need to hold hands and stick together and encouraged the current Year 7s to work on this for the next 5 1/2 years while at Delany College.  He thanked the team of Delany teachers who lead the learning each day, as well as Catholic Education and Telstra who have worked with the College and provided these wonderful opportunities.

Greg Whitby, Executive Director Catholic Education Parramatta, spoke about the wonderful partnership between Catholic Education, Delany College and Telstra to make the Delany Connective a reality. He commended Peter Wade for being a Principal who actually teaches each day.

We also heard from Brendon Riley from Telstra and Dr Miranda Jefferson from Catholic Education before Fr Chris D'Souza declared the Delany Connective open.

We were privileged to welcome a number of guests to the Delany Connective, including Counsellor Tony Issa, OAM, Br Peter Ryan, Br Aengus Kavanagh, and many parents and friends of the community. Year 7 Ambassadors guided the guests through the new learning space, while students worked in groups showcasing their most recent projects.  We look forward to continuing our great partnerships through ongoing communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity.
