From Mr Phillips
Our Year 12 students have now completed all of their examinations, and we wish them all the very best as we eagerly await their results on Thursday 12 December. 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 Advisors, Mrs Helen Doherty and Ms Stacey Miriklis and other Senior Staff will be available from Thursday 12 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 Tuesday at the Marvel Stadium. The event celebrated the success of all students who have completed year 12 this year and it was wonderful to celebrate with so many parents staff and friends.
We are delighted to learn that two of our Year 10 students, Daniel Watson and Fanwen Zheng have been 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 2019 Awards: Congratulations to Damon Delaney for his nomination for Junior Male in a lead role and to Michael Syme, Junior Male in a supporting role and to Karl McNamara as Director. This adds to the nominations for the Lyrebirds that were notified earlier and we can be well pleased with the achievements of all involved with this year’s production of the Spamalot.
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 10, 2019.
Construction work for our senior school development has resulted in concrete pours being undertaken this week and we should shortly observe the beginnings of a new structure. The project is currently on time for completion at the start of Term 4 next year.
