The Winter has ended
and we have moved into the spring term. Holidays are on the horizon and over these
weeks it is important that we continue our focus on the following:
- Completing class work.
- Being focused in class.
- Ensuring that all assignments are completed.
- Being at school on time and attending all classes.
- Ensure that the uniform is being worn correctly on all occasions. Students are required to wear the winter uniform until the end of October.
For the Year 12 students the holiday period is not holiday time as they need to spend significant time preparing for their VCE Exams. There will be an opportunity to do trial exams over the break and it is important that Year 12 students take the opportunity that the College provides.
Can I take this opportunity to thank all parents for their attendance at the recent Parent Interviews for the Year 7-11 students. Your interest in your son’s progress is appreciated. The College appreciates your support. Hopefully, you were able to ascertain your son’s effort and commitment to his studies. As students select studies for the following year it is important that they continue to ensure that they maintain a strong commitment to their study.
At present we are undergoing major renovations in a couple of key learning areas. The Benilde block windows are presently being replaced with updated and modern windows. Cost-$400,000.
At the end of this term the Art area will undergo a full renovation so that the area will be modernised and some new classrooms added. The art floor will be out of action for all of Term 4. The cost of the renovations is $1.4 million.
The second group of Year 11 students will leave for Thailand on September 12 to spend two weeks working at the Parmenie (Bamboo) school. They will complete the new dining room that was commenced by the first group of Year 11 students earlier in the year. All St Bede’s College students have contributed to this project by their effort in raising money for MISSION ACTION DAY. We wish the second group of students and 3 teachers all the best as they work on this project.
End of Term: Friday, September 18.
