Principal's Report

From The Principal

This year is flying by with many highlights, providing plenty of reasons to celebrate all that is great about Carwatha College P 12.  Students have been engaged in a variety of learning activities in and beyond the classroom which certainly have catered for the diversity of student interests at our school.

It only seems like yesterday that the year started and that now we find ourselves at the half way point.

On Monday June 19th our V3 students commenced second semester and the transition from first semester has been smooth.

Reports for first semester have been completed and will be available to parents and students on the last day of the term, Friday June 30th via the Compass portal. I encourage all parents to read the report with their child. It is important that each student reviews their first semester achievements as well as having a clear understanding as to what is required to improve.

The Year 12 formal was held on Friday June 23rd at the Grand Metropol. It was a celebration of work completed in semester one. Thank you to Year 12 coordinator Lambrini Christopher and her student leadership team for all the work they put in to make it such a great night.

In term 3 we start preparing for 2018 and our course information night will be held for parents and guardians on July 26th at 6.00 pm, I encourage all parents to attend.

Course counselling/subject selection appointments for parent(s) / guardian(s) will be held for year 10 students going into year 11 on August the 3rd and for year 9 students going into year 10 on August the 4th. I encourage all families as they read their reports to start thinking about which subjects they would like to study next year, or which pathway, VCE or VCAL they would like to follow.

I would like to remind all parents and guardians that school will finish at 2.30 on our last day of term 2 June 30th.

I wish all a safe and relaxing holiday, and look forward to next term which commences on

Monday July 17th.

Qkr – New Feature

Push Notifications now available on Qkr

The push notifications are designed to be ideally sent out as soon as the product appears ready for purchase on parent’s phones. Please remember to go into Settings by clicking the 3 horizontal bars in the top right of the screen to ensure you have opted in to receive push notifications from QKR. When the push notification has been sent, and assuming the parent has opted in to receive notifications, below is what it looks like on an IPhone. It may appear slightly different on an Android Phone, but the functionality is the same.


Anaphylaxis - Change To Emergency Management

Important - please note

The devices have not changed, just the instructions on the label, which now include:

  • Reduced injection time from 10 to 3 seconds – this is based on research confirming efficacy and delivery of adrenaline through the 3 second delivery.
  • Removal of the massage step after the injection – this has been found to reduce the risk of tissue irritation.

Whilst it is important that anyone who requires anaphylaxis training (including school and early childhood education/care staff) are aware of the changes, there is no need for immediate re-training on the 3 second EpiPen®.

EpiPen®s with a 10 second label can continue to be used and should not be replaced unless they have been used, are just about to expire or have expired.  

All EpiPen®s should now be held in place for 3 seconds, regardless of the instructions on the label.  However, if they are held for 10 seconds it will not affect the way that the adrenaline works. 

To access updated ASCIA Action Plans for Anaphylaxis, ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training courses, the 3 second EpiPen® training video and other resources go to

From The Assistant Principal

As the semester draws to a close I thank the students and staff for their efforts this and know that reports will be a time of celebration for students that have worked hard and strived to do their best in their studies.  These students will all show similar qualities of commitment, setting goals and striving to do their best.  In partnership with their teachers and parents/guardians successful students make the most of the opportunities that Carwatha has to offer.

I encourage all students and their parent to read reports and analyse areas of improvements ready for semester 2.  Reports will go live on Friday – the last day of term.

For parents of students in Year 7 – 9 the big change to reports will be that now we are reporting against the Victorian Curriculum and we have included some information for parents on how to interpret reports.

Secondary Student Reports Year 7-9, 2017

Reporting on the Victorian Curriculum at Carwatha College P-12


At Carwatha College P-12, student reports provide students, teachers and parents with a clear and concise picture of a student’s achievement and progress at a point in time. Teachers make informed and consistent decisions about student progress against the achievement standards using a variety of assessments and observations to inform their judgement. They map the student’s learning against the achievement standards of the Victorian Curriculum, and place the student on the learning continuum, that best reflect the student’s level of performance and progress.


The Victorian Curriculum (which replaces the AUSVels Curriculum we assessed against in 2016) is a  developmental learning continuum and is organised by levels not years of schooling. The curriculum consists of Towards Foundation Levels A to D and Levels Foundation to 10. All curriculum areas have achievement standards, describing what students are able to understand and do.

All students progress along the learning continuum at their own rate and from their own starting point. Their learning is personalised and they are taught at the level that suits their needs, rather than being taught to the year level and age group they are in.


To access your son or daughter’s reports please follow these instructions:

  • Log on to Compass through the school website using your unique password (if you have forgotten the password, please ring the office on 9795 5848).
  • Compass will open to your home screen.
  • Click on the tab ‘View academic report’ to open the file.
  • Click on the relevant report
  • 2017 – Semester 2 Secondary or 
  • Click on Export as PDF if you would like to print a copy of your son/daughter’s report at home.

What you will see on your Child’s Report.

Your child’s achievement on Assessment Tasks. (Year 7-9)

This will use the scale

  • Outstanding
  • Excellent
  • Very Good
  • Satisfactory
  • Needs Improvement
  • Unsatisfactory

Statements about What your child has achieved and How they can improve.


If you have any questions about how to read your child’s end of semester report or wish to discuss anything on your child’s report do not hesitate to contact the school.


Please keep in mind that as this is a new curriculum, this report cannot show progress from the previous years' reports which assessed against the previous curriculum.


Further information about the Victorian Curriculum can be found online at: or by contacting the school.

Science 7C Experiment - Forming Clouds

On Tuesday June 13, 7C students participated in a science experiment. They have recently been learning about resources, and in particular, water and its movement through the environment via in the water cycle. Students heated water until it boiled, and covered it with a watch-glass. They saw condensation forming on the bottom of the watch-glass. They then re-boiled the water and added ice to the watch-glass. This time, they saw steam begin to form. This experiment showed how water can change from a liquid to a gas, and a gas to a liquid (evaporation and condensation, respectively) both of which are stages in the water cycle. Did you know – clouds form due to the evaporation and condensation of water droplets, and that it rains when these clouds become too heavy!

Year 7 Girls Soccer

On Thursday 15th June, twelve students participated in the Greater Dandenong Division Soccer competition.

The girls were Marie Kelly-Anne Albert, Sahar Al-Deeb, Sarah Dib, Isabella Eghanian, Ramona Ghandour, Mackenzie Ho, Norah Hoang, Suripon Homkroom, Aleysha Koutsoupias, Hena Kuljuh, Ro Mon Lay and Aliah Zimah.  They reached the final but unfortunately were beaten by Dandenong High School.  The girls were extremely proud of their efforts on the day.   Well done!! 

Thanks to Mr Pieta for coaching them.

Year 7 Girls Netball

It was a tough day out for the year 7 girls netball team. Wins were very hard to come by in an extremely competitive division. Over the course of the day, the team showed great effort and banded together to assist everyone learning the game and participate. Great sportsmanship was displayed by all players on the day.

Science 8A Experiment - Making A Compound From Its Elements

On Monday June 19, 8A students participated in a science experiment. During their Chemistry unit, students have recently been learning about compounds, mixtures and elements, and in particular, the difference between the make-up of compounds and elements. Students heated up a piece of Magnesium using a Bunsen burner, tripod, pipeclay triangle and crucible. They watched Magnesium change from a silver, shiny metal to a dull white powder. We then discussed that this experiment demonstrated a chemical reaction, and why this was so. Did you know – the compound we formed in this experiment, Magnesium oxide, can be used as an antacid for heartburn?! Thank you to Ashton who assisted me in packing up the experiment!

Southern Metropolitan Cross Country

On Monday 19th June six students participated in the Southern Metropolitan Region cross country competition. These students were Alison Hughes, Hanna Garrard, Reannin Carlos-Smart, Reggie Comeros, Ro Mon Lay and Kevin Lomuro.

All students performed extremely well against strong opposition. Well done to these students. 

Thanks to Ms Grubb for taking them on the day.

Year 10 Incursion - Keys Please

On Thursday the 22nd of June, the Year 10's participated in the ‘Keys Please’ presentation, facilitated by Sharon Torpey from Vic Roads. This is a program run by Vic Roads in secondary schools to help guide students in their driving journey. During this presentation, Sharon gave students important statistics and facts about the responsibility of driving a car. Students gained a better understanding of what skills driving involves, road rules and how to pass the Learner’s driving test. All students received a free set of L plates to take home. Students were very grateful for the professional advice they were given, so that they will be safer on our roads in the future.

Unit 3&4 English Class - Excursion  

Medea by Euripides

On the 10th of May 2017, the students from unit 3/4 English went to the Drum Theatre to watch the play Medea, one of the texts that were studied during the term. During the play, many of the characters’ traits were shown. For instance Medea’s passion when planning her revenge on her husband, Jason and his conceited personality, the princess’ naivety and child-like nature as well as King Creon’s fatherly love for his daughter. This play was helpful in understanding the themes and characters; it was also a little revision for us for the upcoming exam in November.


Ipshita Bawa 

The theatre production of Medea provided an in depth and detailed interpretation of the play,  which helped students to  get a better understanding of the text being studied. The actors that took part in the performance displayed a convincing portrayal of the characters within the play, and the values which those characters entail. The performance was very dramatic and emphasised the large amount of passion, and what that strong sense of passion may lead someone to do, in regards to dealing with betrayal, and plotting for ‘revenge’, which is demonstrated to a large extent within Medea’s character. The lighting and sound effects used throughout the course of the performance added to the increasing intensity of the scenes that were performed. Overall the performance was very enjoyable, and we would recommend to others. It was a very entertaining and insightful experience for us and we are thankful for it.

Year 12 Formal

On Friday June 23, Year 12 students attended the very first Year 12 formal for Carwatha College P-12. The girls looked beautiful with their hair and make-up done, and the boys looked very handsome in their suits. Students and teachers enjoyed a delicious 3-course meal. Many photos were taken, students danced on the dance floor and enjoyed voting for students for awards such as ‘best hair’ and ‘best dressed’. All students proudly represented our college and thoroughly enjoyed the night. Thank you to Mrs Christopher and the Year 12 leaders for their tireless preparation for the evening, and Mr Mulcahy for giving permission for this event to occur.

I am sure that all Year 11 students hope that next year, we will have another Year 12 formal.

From the Assistant Principal

It has been a long term and I'm sure everyone is looking forward to the holidays for a well earned break! I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the staff and students for their hard work this semester. The  student comments in reports certainly reflect their achievement against their goals. 

We are now reporting against the Victorian Curriculum as opposed to AUSVels as in previous years. You will notice a few additional areas included on the reports.  Please take time to read the report with your child. Reports will go live on Friday 30th June- the last day of term.

Mrs Mcphie will be on long service leave for the first 6 weeks of the term and I will be on leave for the first week.

Enjoy the holidays and I look forward to seeing you all next term!

Passions Clubs - Garden Club News

The students in the garden club planted some winter vegetable seedlings last week after many weeks of getting the garden beds ready for planting and free of weeds.

We certainly got our hands dirty!

We did not need to water the plants as large black clouds threatened to rain on us all afternoon.

We can't wait to see how quickly they grow and then we can work out what we are going to cook with our fresh vegetables.

Thanks to all the students for planting out the vegetable patch and cleaning up all the equipment.

Now we watch them grow!

The Premiers Reading Challenge

Students can access books recommended for The Victorian Premier’s Reading Challenge by using the Search computers in the library. From the Home Page, click the Quick Lists tab at the top of the page and a drop down list of the different Year levels appears. Click the appropriate Year level and the recommended books that we hold in our library will appear.

Holiday reading

Students from prep to Year 12 may borrow an extra book, on top of their usual allowance, to read over the holidays. We are constantly adding new books to our collection. We also encourage parents to join our library. We have a good selection of books in our senior reading section.



‘Genrefication’ of our fiction collection continues. We have completed our sections on Science Fiction , which includes Dystopian fiction, the future and Steampunk ; The Classics; Chick Lit and Lad Lit. Some books cover a number of genres. The Classics, for example, has books from Science Fiction such as The Day of the Triffids, and Chick Lit – Pride and Prejudice and Lad Lit – The Catcher in the Rye.

Our Chick Lit and Lad Lit sections are works of fiction about adolescent issues including family relationships, romance, friendships, bullying and school and workplace matters. Some are humorous and light hearted but not all. Some Chick Lit and Lad Lit could belong to either category.

Each genre contains books for varying reading levels and age groups of our students. Again, for example, the Classics section contains Anne of Green Gables and Heidi as well as  War and Peace and The Three Musketeers.


ID Cards

From the start of Term 3, secondary students must have their ID cards with them to borrow books from the library.

Thank you to Charlie Ta for his help in bringing the garden to life.


A reminder that parents are welcome to borrow from our library.

Year 9 Exploring Careers and VETis options at Chisholm Tafe.

Yesterday the Year 9 students had a great day at Chisholm at our DREAM Trade Training Centre. Students participated in two workshops over the day. They chose from the following workshops Panel & paint, Vehicle wrap, Hospitality- including both cookery and Barista, Beauty, Engineering where the students programmed and produced a Fidget Widget, automotive and sticker design.

As you can see from the photos the students really enjoyed the day! Students had the opportunity to find out about what courses they can study to lead to jobs in these trade areas. Students were all hands on in their learning which is certainly a benefit of courses run through TAFES.

Thursday students had a presentation on Careers for my future. They then went on to create a log in with “myfuture” website and explore the interactive career bullseye posters. These posters are subject based and outline what careers are linked to these subjects. It also includes what training and skills are required to be successful in gaining qualifications to work in these areas.  It is hoped that both the workshops at Chisholm and the careers research done on Thursday will assist students in making their subject selections for V3.
