Message from the College Acting Principal
Dear Parents and Carers,
We have had a very busy Term 2, but it has been wonderful and so many exciting things have happened. We have had camps, athletics days, rep breakfast, swimming programs, excursions, incursions, book fair and much more. All of these things have been exciting and the students have thoroughly enjoyed participating in them. We are always incredibly proud of how our students represent our College at events, both here at school and within the community. I would like to extend a very big thank you to our wonderful staff who have given up their time to organise and support these events.
This week our Reporting Portfolios will be sent home. These Portfolios are a celebration of your child’s learning, through authentic samples of student work. Our reporting portfolios are intended to provide both parents and students with additional information regarding student progress, including areas for continued improvement and a progressive record of student achievement. We hope you enjoy sharing and celebrating your child’s Semester 1 achievements. If you have any questions regarding the Reporting Portfolios, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or a member of the College Leadership Team.
Over the past two weeks we have been fortunate to have Semper Dental visiting our school. They have been teaching students about the importance of a healthy diet and how to brush and look after their teeth. A large number of our students have also visited the dentists for a comprehensive oral examination and treatment. Parents of students who have seen the dentists will receive a written copy of their child’s treatment plan.
This week we received the long awaited results from the Berthe Mouchette French Recital competition, which is organised by the Alliance Francaise of Melbourne. This year we had 22 students from Year 4 – 8 who achieved a perfect score of 20 out of 20. This is an outstanding achievement for these students and we are extremely proud of all students who participated in the competition. The 22 finalists will be competing against finalists from other school in August and we look forward to sharing their results with our community next term.
A reminder that next term we will be releasing the Compass Pay module which enables parents to make payments and give permission for camps, excursions and incursions through the parent portal. We believe this will support our parents by streamlining the administration process. More information will be sent home this week for parents with instructions on how to provide permission and pay for events. We will also be hosting parent workshops on how to use compass next term. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our College Administration on 9749 0506.
Once again I would like to thank our students and families for a wonderful Term 2. Stay safe and enjoy the holidays. We are looking forward to seeing you all on Monday 15 July ready to commence a great Term 3.
