The Educator magazine is part of an international group of publications dedicated to professionals in various fields. Their latest edition featured a list entitled ‘Rising Stars 2016’, in recognition of the industry’s best and brightest talent under the age of 40.
The list included Ormiston College Head of English, Mr Peter Hoens, quoting him as having ‘wisdom beyond his years’.The article acknowledged his forward-thinking and management. Special mention was made of his leadership style enabling other teachers’ expertise to shine within the English Department; in particular the reinvigoration of a unit on Myths and Legends, The Hero’s Journey, for which the assessment is now a collaboratively-planned, multi-narrative e-book. Mr Hoens leadership was also credited for empowering teachers to take risks in their method of teaching.
Congratulations to Mr Hoens on being highlighted amongst the best and brightest for 2016!
