From Mr Phillips
Our Year 12 students have all now completed their examinations, and we wish them all the very best as we eagerly await their results on Friday 14 December 2018.
We have heard that there were no major surprises on any of the examinations, and the teachers have been pleased with the work ethic displayed in the final weeks leading up to the examinations.
Our Careers Advisor, Mrs Helen Doherty and other Senior Staff will be available from Friday 14 December to offer assistance and counselling to students, should they wish, and to assist with any changes of preferences for University or other courses.
The year culminated successfully at the Valedictory celebrations held last Friday at the Melbourne Park Tennis Centre.
The event celebrated the success of all students who have completed year 12 in 2018 and it was wonderful to celebrate with so many parents staff and friends.
We were delighted to learn that one of our Year 10 students, Matilda Wilson was successful in being awarded a Kwong Lee Dow Scholarship from the University of Melbourne which is an academic enrichment program designed to support high-achieving Victorian secondary school students.
While still at school, the program offers opportunities for participation in workshops and seminars, and students will be able to interact with the University and with other Kwong Lee Dow Scholars.
We have been notified of the following nominations by the judging panel for the Theatre Guild of Victoria 2018 Awards:
Congratulations to Coleman Shook for his nomination for 'Junior Male in a Supporting Role' and Commendations to Damon Delaney and Michael Syme, 'Junior Male in a Leading Role' and to 'The Design Award for Costumes and Settings.'
This adds to the nominations for the Lyrebird Awards that were notified earlier and we can be well pleased with the achievements of all involved with this year’s production of The Addams family.
During the next few weeks, we will be involving the students in Year 6 in a series of orientation activities for next year, so that they can enjoy a smooth transition into the next stage of their schooling. Orientation day is December 11, 2018.
Plans for our senior school development have now reached the schematic design stage and will be signed off by the project manager and the DET next week, after which detailed design work will be undertaken in readiness for tender in 2019. Exciting times ahead.
