FROM THE PRINCIPAL

MEET JOHN JOVIC, CSC PRINCIPAL


It is a great honour and privilege to have been appointed as the new Principal of Cranbourne Secondary College. I have been a member of staff since 1997 and in that time I have become very fond of this great school.

 

I have come to understand the staff, students and parents of this school, and the important role that Cranbourne Secondary College has as an educational provider within the wider community. I particularly take great pleasure and comfort from seeing generations of families continue to have their young children educated at our school. We have parents and grand-parents who have previously attended our school regularly seen dropping off and picking up their children and grand-children. 


I am buoyant about the prospects of our College over the next 3-5 years. A facilities upgrade on a massive scale will deliver modern state of the art classrooms that will enhance our capacity to deliver the best learning program possible. 


While we have our challenges as a school (most schools have) I believe I am well placed to lead the school at this critical time in its history. An intricate understanding of this school and its community will enable me capitalise on the opportunities presented. I am highly motivated to see our school succeed and look forward to working closely with the students, teachers and parents of this great College.

EVERYDAY HEROES

Shadab Safa and Ahmad Mohammadi have shaved their heads to highlight that we are all  touched in some way by the loss of  someone to cancer. This year we lost a teacher and friend  Ms Anita Templin. The school community has helped raise nearly $1000 dollars so far.

 

CONSTRUCTION ZONE

The College currently has a new Trade Training Centre construction being erected at the Russell Street end. Contractors will be working on it, for the next 6 months. A temporary fence surrounds this area allowing the contractors to work in isolation for the safety of all members of the College community.


Students are not allowed near this area. The Russell Street entry to the school is closed.


Please do not use the entry point into the Staff car Park at Russell Street. Cars and  trucks enter at this  point  and  is  not  suitable for  pedestrian traffic.  Please use  the  gates at  Stawell Street and Brunt Street. A drop off  zone  is  available  for cars  on Stawell Street.

REVERSING THE ROLES!

The SRC were responsible for one of the most enthusiastically received free dress days in memory. The Staff in some cases were able to fit into their old uniform.

This was a great day that had everyone wondering who was imitating and  who was real.

 

The State School Relief will benefit from the  money raised from this event. Thanks SRC.

STUDENTS ARE SAYING...

TAGGED: Yr 8 Cyber Culture

All Year 8 classes learned about the extent of bullying and the impact it has with Ms. Harrex.

 

The program went for two periods and during this time, we covered a lot of topics, including everything from the spreading of one little rumour to blackmail and using it to threaten other people.

 

We understood that we need to think about the the outcomes of our choices and the decisions we make.

 

We also were shown a short film on bullying where three girls spread a lie online and ended up in a friendship falling apart, as well as school and police involvement.

 

This film truly was an eye opener, as most of us had zero idea that something so small could go so far. I think that the most controversial scene, which really got us all talking, showed that even if you move schools to get a fresh start, people can (and will) find out about your past and your relationships online.

 

The class asked a lot of questions about what the film meant for us and cybersafety in general. While some answers brought us back to using common sense,

 

After the film ended, we were handed a sheet that asked us to tick the boxes about what we were sharing online. (I believe that half our class ticked over half of the options on the checklist!)

 

We were all given a serious reality check over how much we are probably sharing online with complete strangers.

 

Overall, I believe that the Year 8 students really enjoyed “Tagged” and were appalled to see just how far things can go in the modern world in which we all live.

YEAR 9 CITY JOURNEY: MELBOURNE MUSEUM

On the 16th of June, the class of 9D went on their fourth City Journey outing.         

 

A peachy rich glow filled the sky early that morning. Colours faded from a tangy yellow to a coral orange to a sweet pink. The icy frost on windows and cars were melting as the beautiful day grew warmer. And the train station, packed with rushing students as they prepared for their fourth City Journey adventure.

The task set for the students’ quest was to find matching destinations to images they were given back at school. A race against time, the class of 9D must manage to discover every destination and meet at the Melbourne Museum before 12.45pm. Unfortunately, some did not make it, and must now face the consequences.

 

Entering the specific area of the Museum known as “The Melbourne Story”, students must find each and every answer to the questions listed in their booklets. Searching for explanations and looking for key descriptions, the students managed to answer all questions and have some fun in the Museum after a full day of hard work.

JUNIOR SCHOOL

YEAR 7 2018, INFO NIGHT

The Information evening that the college held last week was a great success.Prospective parents and students gathered in our theater to hear about  our great school  from our college leaders and students. The audience was treated to some  great  performances from our college band led by Josh Mitchell(Performing Arts Leader)


The college ran some tours of the school where parents and students were provided with a glimpse of school life. Mock classes in Arts, Humanities, Music and Technology were held to show what it is like in a secondary school classroom.

CREATE FESTIVAL

Parents, teachers, friends and students  came together to celebrate the fantastic  work completed  this semester  in our  Year 9 Create  Program. The  theatre foyer  was  filled with  some amazing work  in Art and  Technology. The  performances  later  in the evening  displayed some courageous, stirring  and entertaining  acts on our stage.

 

I would  like to thank all the teachers  for  the special work  they have completed with these students  to bring them to a point where they can showcase  their  efforts in front  of a large audience. In  particular the valuable work  done  behind  the scenes  to ensure the  students  were supported. (setting  up,  lights, stage work, sound,  packing  up) Thanks  to  Josh  for  bringing it all  home. 

 

Many of  the acts featured  tonight  will appear  again  over the  next  few  years. Create  has  a way  of  lifting everyone  up a  little .

YEAR 7 CAMP

The photo collage from the Year 7 camp sums up the great  fun and  wonderful learning opportunities this event brings. There were some tired campers  by the end of the week but it was all worth it. Thanks to all the teachers who attended and made sure that this was a memorable experience for everyone involved.

TRY-A-TRADE DAY

 

Cranbourne Secondary College students have once again attended the yearly South East Career Expo (Try-a-Trade) at Cranbourne Racecourse, on Tuesday 2 May.

 

Students from Year 9 used this time to investigate a range of career pathways as part of their Learning Journeys subject. 

The Expo has a strong emphasis on “hands on” activities and these showcase the wide and varied range of courses that are available in the TAFE and vocational education system. 

All Cranbourne SC students from Years 9 – 12 have a Career Action Plan where they record their ongoing career investigations and plans for their future pathways.

VET HOSPITALITY

 

SENIOR SCHOOL DANCE

The annual Senior Formal Dance this year was held on 15 June 2017 at the Sandhurst Club.  The event was attended by approximately 20 staff and 270 students, all of whom owe thanks to Ms Heidi Gunn for her accomplished organisation of this enjoyable evening. 

 

 The occasion was an excellent opportunity for ladies to exhibit some of the finer components of their wardrobe and for gentlemen to express their interests. 

 

Dancing is also an activity that can serve to enlighten people on one aspect of cultures different from their own, and so to learn from those other cultures.  It is an enjoyable way to take part in a different way of life and so develop an appreciation for those lifestyles.

BATTLE OF THE BANDS

The Battle of the Bands was hosted at our school theatre recently. Our young talented musicians received the awards for best guitar and also for best bass guitar.

 

This competition features some fantastic local talent. Once again our students displayed there remarkable talent. 

 

Our band was sensational. They played 3 songs that were received with wild reactions from the audience. I am very proud of the achievements of  our  Performing Arts students. They always unearth performances that are unique and exuberant.

We had 59 out of a possible 99 students come along and compete and boy did our students compete- we had: Alice Nagtzaam finished 2nd, Hayden Ensor and Amira Addisu-Tebi finished 3rd and a few more finished in the top 10 which qualifies them all for the regional final.

Even more pleasingly, we finished in 4th place overall (out of 10 schools!) our best result in quite some years. A fantastic effort and result.
