Mr Nicholas Adamou
It is with great pleasure that I welcome everyone back to the 2018 academic year.
I trust that students, parents and staff had a great holiday break and are ready for another successful year.
I extend a special welcome to our new Year 7 students and their families who joined us this year. On Monday 5, February at a welcoming parents & students iPad distribution evening I was pleased to meet and talk to many of our new Year 7 student families.
Also, special welcome to all new Year 8 to 12 students and their families to our school community.
In the last two weeks, it has been great to observe classes settled in their new Home Groups, developing a clear focus on achieving their goals and personal best for this academic year.
To the Year 12 students, as they embark in their final year at North Geelong SC, I take this opportunity to wish them a year full of success. I can’t promise that it will be without any challenges, however, applying themselves is the only way to succeed. Last year’s Year 12 cohort has set a high benchmark with great outcomes; however, I believe that this year’s Year 12 students are capable of greater results, pushing the benchmark even higher.
Over the Christmas break there has been a lot of work completed on the physical environment of the school. Painting around the school, new Junior Sub-School Office in A Wing, Refurbished Wellbeing facilities in A Wing, refurbishment of the woodwork facilities in E Wing, new undercover outdoor student areas, just to mention a few projects.
The 4.75 million dollars capital works have begun and stages of construction/refurbishment are in place. The first stage of refurbishment is Block B and the court yard between B and C wings, these works will begin at the end of February and will see the full refurbishment of the Food Technology area, including two x state of the art kitchens, a larger dining area wrapped around by an outdoor decking, complete refurbishment of the courtyard and the walk way between B and beginning of C Wings. Provisions are in place to relocate all classes from this area including the Food Technology room. It is anticipated that Stage One will be delivered to the school half way through Term 2.
We are proud of our school community and place high importance on the way we look and behave in the wider community. Our aim is to continue improving the learning and teaching environment of our students, enabling all kind of learners to reach their full potential.
Once again, welcome back to what promises to be another great year for our school community. I look forward to meeting and working closely with as many parents/guardians as possible during the course of the year.
Wishing all the students and staff a great academic year.
