Mr Doug Doherty

My name is Doug Doherty, and I am very honoured to be the Principal at Nagle College. As a parent and educator, I have the highest expectations for all learners regarding their commitment to their academic learning. These expectations also require that all students successfully develop their own positive character by showing respect for oneself and others, as well as continuing to make positive impacts to the culture of our College, and the other communities they engage with.

Nagle College is an active and proud Catholic learning community that continues to provide a rich holistic education to the young people from East Gippsland. We aim to help our students become successful life-long learners who will make positive contributions to a local, national and global 21st Century society.

This means that our goal for every student is that they can develop higher order thinking skills that will assist them to confidently approach all challenges and new circumstances that they may face while at school and in their future lives.

This also means that we recognise and celebrate all areas of learning success, whether academic or applied learning or extra-curricular. As a Catholic community we recognise and celebrate the value and dignity of each unique person and the contributions they can make. This is emphasised in the College motto – “Let Your Light Shine.”

Our College is a faith-based learning community that ensures all students can be Safe, Happy and Successful. Students are reminded of this through the continuous implementation of our College’s school wide expectations: Respect, Responsibility and Excellence.

As a Catholic community we are people of hope, which is based on developing successful and respectful relationships between staff, students and families, following the example of Jesus Christ.

We look forward to continuing to develop these relationships with both current and new families.

I welcome you to organise a visit of our College and have a chat with myself or a representative staff member to gain further insight into our wonderful College family.

I would also encourage you to continue to scroll through our website and check out our social media platforms to see what Nagle College has to offer and a taste of things to come.

God Bless
