Mr Nicholas Adamou
As this is the final newsletter for 2018, I wish to acknowledge the exceptional work and support provided to our College by a wide range of people.
We recently had our final School Council dinner for the year, where I acknowledged the contribution of the members of this very important group that govern our school.
The College Council President, Ms Di Lang, Vice President, Mr Matthew Sheehan, School Council parent members; Shelley Kitchen, Catherine McKenzie, Laurence Lord, Judith Densley, Lyndal Jones, Amanda Bartlett and Donna Woods and DE&T elected members; June Bashiruddin, Connie Romano, Emily Dowling, Tonia Tigani and Rebecca Hand, co-opted members, Year 12 students, Thomas Grantham and Tyler George, have given freely of their time in providing policy development, monitoring and evaluation. Through their work the College can focus upon providing the best possible teaching and learning programs and environment for all of our students.
To the many, many students at North Geelong SC who have set their goals and, after working hard throughout the year, achieved them, I offer my congratulations. Their commitment to their learning makes our College an outstanding place to be part of. Our Logo “Strive to Achieve” heralds what we believe in as a school community. The school’s values (Respect, Excellence, Achievement and Diversity) and the high expectations from students, staff, parents and the wider community generated this year’s outstanding achievements and positive results.
I take this opportunity to publicly thank Assistant Principals; Ms Julie Andrews, Mr Paul Dawson and Mr Brad Headlam who worked tirelessly within the leadership team to ensure the school continues to enjoy success.
I also extend my sincere thank you to all staff, teaching and non–teaching for their dedication and hard work during this year. The focus and the consistency in teaching and learning in the classroom and beyond has provided a wealth of opportunities for our students.
A special thank you to those staff members who are leaving the College, retiring or taking leave next year. The College staff and students have greatly appreciated their significant contributions.
2019 will see the school’s capital works refurbishment completed. The refurbishment will be completed by July and that will deliver state of the art school facilities, fully air-conditioned teaching and learning spaces, refurbished Science laboratories, brand new toilet blocks, expanded car park and magnificent outdoor undercover spaces. We are looking forward to the completion of all capital works as the new and refurbished facilities will be matching the outstanding curriculum and extra-curriculum programs provided to our students.
Finally, I take this opportunity to extend to all members of our School community my very best wishes for a safe and Happy Christmas, Happy New Year and a thoroughly relaxing, refreshing and safe holiday.
I look forward to a great start to the 2019 academic year.
