Principal's Message








      Mrs Josie Crisara

Information Evenings

Thank you to those parents who attended the information evenings held over the past few weeks. These are important for delivering information and giving you an opportunity to ask questions. Next week we have the Parents and Friends sponsored Prep and Year 7 Parent Social Evenings to assist parents to get to know each other and feel part of the community.

2018 College Leaders

On Wednesday we inducted the 2018 College Leaders. Congratulations to all those students who will be taking on leadership roles in 2018.  In the Leaders Assembly, students were reminded about some important leadership lessons, including:

  • Great leaders have a mentor, someone they could look to for advice.
  • Great leaders are great teachers, they help others learn.
  • Great leaders have a plan, they know what it is they want to do.
  • Great leaders persevere, especially when things get tough.
  • Great leaders find the balance, they find the balance when they feel pulled in many directions.

Finally, they were reminded about the importance of focusing on communication, motivation, how they interact with others and being flexible. Please see list attached.


Parents & Friends News

The Parents and Friends are organising a great Outdoor Movie event on Friday 16 March. Please come along and enjoy this great community experience.

Petition: Mickleham Road Duplication

Please continue to return petitions to the school office. I will present these to the Local Member, Ros Spence, in early March for tabling in parliament. Anyone impacted by the use of Mickleham Road can sign the petition. If you have signed previous petitions you can still sign this new one. All petitions need to be returned to Reception by Friday 2 March.

Students Arriving Early To School

Please note that children should not be dropped off at school before 8.00am. There is no teacher supervision until then; children on site prior to 8.00am may be taken to Before School Care for which parents will be charged a fee.

Positano Grove Pedestrian Crossing

There is now a pedestrian crossing in Positano Grove next door to the school. This has been installed to enhance student safety when walking to and from school. Please encourage your children to use the crossing properly. Beware of parking incorrectly near or on the crossing as Council officers are actively monitoring traffic in the street and have issued fines.

Student Accident Insurance

The College has insurance that covers expenses resulting from student accidents. If you wish to obtain further details, please contact the Finance Manager.

My Aitken App

Parents using My Aitken may be interested in the App version for phones and tablets. Search for Firefly for Parents in the App store, enter the school code “Aitken” followed by your My Aitken email address and password. You will be able to access your child’s timetable, work tasks, assessments and feedback.

IT Support

College Activities

Class of 2016 - One Year Reunion

A good number of Alumni from the Class of 2016 gathered on Friday evening last week to remember their time at Aitken. As is now the norm, the function was held in the Food Technology Centre and as is now also the norm, there were groans about how life was so unfair that this wonderful facility became operational after their departure. “It was built, but we were not allowed inside”, they wailed.


A quick tour of the grounds also unearthed the relatively new wood-fired pizza oven. "Oh dear, even more to envy", they said. Future reunions they decided would have to be Italian themed, outdoor functions with Mrs Crisara in charge of the oven.


Whilst many of these Alumni are still in contact with their close friends after departing the College, there was still interesting news to share with members of the wider group. Most are still students in some shape or form and are attempting the juggle that is tertiary study combined with casual employment. With apologies from another 20+ Alumni unable to attend due to the vagaries of the casual roster, numbers would have been swelled further.


Alumni are employed in the following fields/industries: apprentice electrician, apprentice carpenter, logistics and another beginning her training in the Royal Australian Army within the next few weeks.  Greater numbers are still studying and in the main looking forward to the beginning of the academic year. Examples of courses in which they are enrolled include: paramedicine, nursing, business, event management, human services – social work, computer systems, exercise science, primary education, media and communications, sports science, psychological science, computer and network engineering, history and classics, commerce, science, pilot in training, surveying, occupational therapy, music, accounting, civil engineering, oral health science, outdoor education and pharmaceutical science.


All those attending and those unable due to prior commitments are determined to reunite in 2021 for their five-year reunion. Many, many thanks to those teachers in attendance.

Parents & Friends 

Gym Additions

The Parents & Friends Association are extremely proud of how the new Electronic Score Board and Dividing Curtain look in the gym. It makes the Parents & Friends Association fundraising events so worthwhile when you see the funds raised from the supportive Aitken College families going to such a useful purpose in the school. Thank you for your support last year.


Movie Night

We have a busy first term planned and our first fundraiser and community event for the year is the Movie Night on Friday 16 March. Come along and enjoy a night under the stars. There will be popcorn and other goodies on sale to make it a fun, family evening.  See attached flyer


2018 Parents & Friends Volunteer Form

We cannot do this without the support of Parents.

We run many events during the year, like the Mothers and Fathers Day breakfasts and the evening Chapel and Performing Arts Concerts / Musical canteens. We ask people to give just a few hours in the morning or evening to help out to make these events a success. If you can, please complete the form attached and email it to [email protected] indicating what type of event or time would suit you best. Please remember that you need to have a current Working with Children Check.


Pre-loved Uniform Donations

If you have Aitken College uniform items at home that are no longer in use and are in wearable condition, we would love to have them. The Parents & Friends Association clean and iron the donated uniform items and resell them at our quarterly Pre-loved Uniform Sales with all the funds going back to the Parents & Friends Association fundraising account. The items can be dropped off at our clothing bin near the main Reception. Please remember that the items need to be in a wearable condition and we do not have a market for re-sale on Aitken socks.

Raffle Prize Donations

We have several events planned for this year where we will be running raffles. If you have any new items that you would like to donate, then please bring them into the main Reception.


Look out for our upcoming events. Notices will be sent home with students:

  • Hot Cross Bun Order Forms in March
  • Captain's Concert - Tuesday 27 March
  • Pre–loved Uniform Sale - Wednesday 28 March (2.30pm - 5.30pm)
  • Trivia Night - Friday 20 April


If you would like to join the Parents & Friends Association, then come along to our next meeting, Wednesday 7 March at 7.30pm in the Chapel and Performing Arts Centre Seminar room (upstairs P24).

Excellent Standards of Uniform and Behaviour

The year has gotten off to an excellent start. I have received many excellent reports from teachers about students’ class work and attitude. Brookhill students have also been very impressive in the area of leadership. I often speak to the senior students about their roles as leaders within our community. All Brookhill students have a responsibility to show leadership to the younger students in the College; the good example set by the senior students can make a positive contribution to the overall culture of the College. Congratulations are due to the Brookhill student group for the excellent leadership they have been demonstrating this year.


To keep up the high standards, I ask parents and students to keep the following points in mind:

  • Students should be in full, correct uniform at all times. PE uniform is NEVER acceptable in regular classes; students must come to school in correct, regular uniform.
  • Spray jackets do not become part of school uniform until Term 2; they should not be seen during Term 1.
  • Brookhill students must not loiter in the area around the canteen. Once they have their food, they must return straight to the Senior School area. Brookhill students also must not be in the lower plaza area; this area is for Dunhelen students.

Study Skills

Year 10 and Year 11 students have just completed their first Study Skills seminars with presenters from Elevate Education. Research has shown effective study skills to have a significant effect on student academic achievement. I encourage parents to talk to their children about their Study Skills Seminars. You may like to ask your children to show you the workbook they completed during their seminar and explain the ideas to you.


Duke of Edinburgh’s Voluntary ‘Service’

Throughout this term the Year 11 and Year 12 VCAL students will be committing themselves to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Voluntary ‘Service’. The aim of the voluntary service is based on the belief that members of the community should care for each other and contribute to their community. The voluntary service involves a regular commitment averaging at least one hour per week. Examples of voluntary work includes helping with the Year 5/6 Interschool Sports Program, supporting and fundraising for charities, sport coaching and helping in external organisations. Previous College participants with the Duke of Edinburgh program have reflected that it was the voluntary service that gave them the most satisfaction. Students show regular commitment and effort but also learn from the experience.

Homework Club

Students have settled very well into the 2018 school year and already we are as busy as usual. Homework Club will be starting next week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This is an opportunity for students to complete any work they may have. A teacher will always be in attendance so students may ask for assistance if necessary. This program is based on voluntary attendance.

Year 7 Camp

The Year 7 students had a wonderful time on camp. The trip to Phillip Island allowed students to get to know their peers and teachers. Students took part in many different activities and enjoyed the sunshine. Comments from students about the camp:

  • I learnt I could conquer my fear of heights and I also liked the chicken schnitzel. Asvin 
  • I really enjoyed spending time with my friends and getting to know them better.  Jade
  • I liked being away from school and just hanging out with friends and building stronger bonds. Zahn 
  • Something I learnt  was to always try something new and never give up. Carla
  • I didn’t believe in myself enough, but to think I actually went to the top of the giant swing really made me proud that I had challenged myself. Jasmine
  • Something learnt was that everyone has different personalities and we must respect that. Steve


Student Leadership

The school captains attended leadership training this week. This was followed by an induction ceremony on Wednesday. I know that the captains will do their best and we wish them an amazing year. Congratulations to:


School Captains: Alessandro & Abigail

Community Service Captains:  Luke, Hollie & Angela

Environment Captains: Luka & Gabrielle

Performing Arts Captains:  Lewis, Joseph & Molly

Sports Captains: Joseph & Sarah

Clarke House Captains: Phoebe & Luke

Cameron House Captains: Alicia & Benjamin

Dunhelen Swimming Carnival

A reminder that the Dunhelen Swimming carnival will be held on Tuesday 27 February. Girls will need to be in one piece competitive style swimsuits or will need to be wearing a rash vest. All students will be required to wear a rash vest or house t-shirt when they are not in the water. Please do provide your child with sunscreen. The swimming carnival is always a fun day; please feel free to visit if you have time.

Emailing Teachers

If emailing teachers, parents are asked to use their own email address and not their child’s school one. Students should only be emailing teachers using their school email address. Teachers will only respond to student emails if they are sent via the student’s school email address.

Online Safety and Security

Last week, Mr Patchell spoke to the Year 8 and Year 9 students about safety and security online. An email was then also sent out to parents. Please do discuss this topic with your child. There is good and bad in the internet and we have a responsibility to ensure that children are reminded to always seek the ‘good’.  Parents may also want to visit if they would like some help monitoring their child’s use of the internet and social media. Another site to gain information and parent and student resources is:

The Year 7 students will also be spoken to about online safety soon.

Congratulations to students elected as leaders for 2018. Leadership in Cumberland is about developing the skills and taking on responsibilities associated with leadership. Each of the students elected has a role description which outlines their duties and responsibilities. The leaders will be more prominent at assemblies and carnivals, as they undertake the duties assigned to them. The 2018 Leaders are:


Cumberland School Captains

Andy and Amy 


Performing Arts Captains

Samuel and Briana


Community Service Captains

Poppy and Tymanie


Environment Captains

Anthony and George


Sports Captains

Marlee and Grace


Brodie House Captains

Isabelle and Mia 


Cameron House Captains

Zane and Tatjana


Clarke House Captains

Adam and Thomas


Millar House Captains

Bryan and Victoria


All leaders from Years 6-12 attended training sessions on Tuesday afternoon covering topics such as Communication and Public Speaking, Style and Management, Leaders in Cyberlife, and Restorative Practices.


Coding Day

On Thursday, the students had a wonderful day of coding. The day started with an introduction to coding and the application of block coding on the website. The students had the opportunity to work on 3 programs: Minecraft, Frozen or Star Wars, applying block codes to direct the online characters to move in various directions and perform various functions. The work the students did can be developed more, as the site provides online tutorials, which students could spend hours exploring and playing. (Mums and dads, I think you could enjoy it too!)


The next sessions were using various little toy robots that blend the physical and digital worlds — and teaches students programing. These sessions were about applying their newly acquired skills to solving problems and encouraged them to design creative solutions and to think outside the box. Great fun was had by all, and importantly, they have begun their learning journey into the world of coding.


Hats, Hats, Hats

Students will be learning about sun protection and the damage UV light can cause. I ask that all parents ensure their child has a hat with them everyday and that they apply sunscreen. Research is now showing that very young children are showing the signs of sun damage, mostly due to daily exposure. Assemblies will cover this topic; however, we need a united effort to protect our children.

Ribbons and Earrings

This year, I am looking closely at how students wear their uniform and I ask that parents support me to ensure students look polished at all times. Uniforms instil pride in students and this is something we really want to encourage in our students.


New rule: Girls are expected to wear a bottle green or navy ribbon in their hair every day if it is tied up.


Earrings: Girls are to wear plain studs or sleepers – no stones etc. Students found wearing the incorrect earrings after February will have them confiscated and sent home at the end of the week.

Parent Guidance

When parents send their children to school they are concerned about many factors:

  1. Is my child learning what is required?
  2. Are they achieving set individual goals?
  3. Are they progressing through reading and word levels adequately?
  4. Are they making friends?
  5. Do they have company during recess and lunch breaks?

We try to discourage parents to become fixated on levels and set goals; as all children will achieve at their own rate. Their learning ability is important; however, what is crucial is that they are safe, healthy and happy. If children are in an environment that supports these issues, they will achieve to their fullest potential. What is important is that they are happy and feel safe. Therefore, their overall well-being is imperative; that is their emotional, social, physical and educational needs.


The children’s Homeroom teacher is a wonderful resource for parents; to support their queries and needs. They have the skills and ability to assist parents in identifying what they will need to focus on at home.


We encourage parents to allow the children to have time to relax at home and have fun. This is the environment that parents control; it is crucial that parents provide the children with rules and limitations.


The children have access to a great deal of gadgets e.g. iPods, iPads, Nintendo, etc. These gadgets are a useful resource; however, they can occupy the majority of the children’s playtime. Establishing guidelines for technology is crucial, as children are now growing up in a world of amazing resources.

There are a few points that parents should all be encouraged to consider:

  • Establish a consistent time where family talk occurs e.g. dinner time - the dining table is an amazing talking tool.
  • Shared quiet and reading time at home.
  • Establishing a routine where children are expected to follow rules and limitations e.g. set reasonable bedtime.
  • Ensuring that children play with each other, not with technology but with each other.

Play is significant because it reinforces the following:

  • foundation to how children learn and interact with each other
  • foundation to their attention, response and processing skills
  • they feel accepted, loved, happy and safe
  • building confidence, self-esteem and resilience
  • developing educational, emotional, social and physical skills
  • developing problem solving, language and communication skills
  • focusing on caring for others and their environment.

Fairview Open House

We had our first Open House on Monday 19 February with Year 2 and the attendance was wonderful. The children and teachers appreciated the engagement and excitement our visitors brought to the event. Two further sessions are scheduled from 2.15pm to 3.00pm.

  • Prep  -            Monday 5 March
  • Year One  -   Monday 26 February

It will be extremely busy in the afternoon, therefore, please take care and park your vehicle in the Western car park or the Eastern car park (next to the gymnasium). Boom gates will be lifted from 2.15pm.

Year 2 and Year 4 Swimming Program

All students in Year 2 and Year 4 will be involved in a compulsory swimming program and swimming carnival during Term 1.  The intensive program includes eight fully instructed 45 minute lessons.  All students will travel by bus to and from Broadmeadows Leisure Centre.  Prep, Year 1 and Year 3 students will participate in the swimming program during Term 2. The consent form will be sent to families.


Year 2 and  Year 4 Swimming Dates:

  • Tuesday 6 March
  • Wednesday 7 March
  • Thursday 8 March
  • Friday 9 March
  • Tuesday 13 March
  • Wednesday 14 March
  • Thursday 15 March
  • Friday 16 March

Parent Helpers Information Session

The College is offering Fairview and Cumberland School parents the opportunity to partake in the Parent Helpers’ Information session. It will outline the program requirements and how parents can actively be involved in the College life. Parents who do not attend the session cannot assist in the classroom. The session is scheduled for Tuesday 6 March, from 6.00pm to 7.00pm. Interested participants can email

[email protected] by Friday 2 March.

Middle School Play

Congratulations to the students who have successfully auditioned for this year’s Middle School production, 'The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe'. A cast of 30 students has been assembled by Ms Jacqueline Flood (Director), led by Angelique (White Witch), Simona, William, Molly, Marcus as the four siblings. The central figure of Aslan, The Lion, will be created as a puppet, operated and voiced by a group of students. The first rehearsal was held on Tuesday with the cast and crew excited by the challenges ahead. The play opens on Thursday 3  May.

VCE Theatre Studies Play

After some deliberation, the Year 12 class have selected, 'The Boat' by Chris Dickins as their major assessment task. The play, which opens on Thursday 17  May, is actually made up of four shorter plays all revolving around the central theme of a boat. It is an exciting venture, in a style unlike anything we have attempted before. The production actually needs multiple boats and a combi-van, on stage. If you have an old boat or van in your backyard that you would be willing to loan to us for a couple of weeks in May, I would be thrilled to hear from you. 


College Musical

There was much excitement this week as the cast list for Disney’s High School Musical was released. More than 50 students will be involved in bringing this teen favourite to the stage in August. Leading them will be Holly (Gabriella), Roberto-Jose (Troy), Nicholas (Ryan), Kaylee (Sharpay) and Kurtis (Chad). The first full read-through will take place this coming Tuesday with a vigorous rehearsal period to follow. Students and staff will also be giving up three days of their holidays for an intensive musical camp. Tickets go on sale in June.


We Need Your Help

The Performing Arts Department relies greatly on the support of the Parents and Friends Association, but they in turn need support of the parents of those students involved in the many events throughout the year. I encourage you to get in touch with the P&F and offer your assistance for canteen and BBQ duties during the many rehearsals and concerts we run throughout the year; in particular, a number of external hirers of the Chapel and Performing Arts Centre, which in turn, provide funds for projects and scholarships offered to the students.

Performing Arts Captain's Concert

This year’s Performing Arts Captain's Concert will raise funds for Headspace Craigieburn. Teenage Mental Health issues have been given greater prevalence in the media, and this organisation is instrumental in supporting students from Aitken and the surrounding areas. A first meeting was held this week for the captains, Caitlin and Caitlyn to begin putting together this year’s show. Entry to the concert, which will be held on Tuesday 27 March, is by donation.
