From Mr Phillips
The Addams Family
It has been wonderful to see so many families enjoying the performances of our students in this quirky production.
The audience reactions have been superb too. I would like to congratulate all of the students involved for their hard work dedication and creativity, whether as a cast member, technical crew person, backstage/makeup person or as a musician in the orchestra.
The support of so many staff and parents has been another highlight and contributes greatly to the quality performances that our students achieve. A special thankyou to the Director of The Addams Family, Mr Karl McNamara for creating such a wonderful experience for our students. He was certainly able to reinforce the excellence and importance of the Performing Arts at Ringwood SC.
Car Parking at Ringwood
The safety of all our students is of paramount importance. Be mindful when dropping off or picking up your children that the streets surrounding the school can become congested with cars and pedestrians. Note carefully the street signs and please avoid parking over the driveways of our neighbours. This is particularly important in the Hill St precinct.
No Stopping Signs
Means no stopping at all. Stopping to let someone out of or into a car regardless of whether you leave the engine running or stay in the vehicle is not allowed.
No Parking Signs
You can stop in a No Parking area for up to two minutes, provided that you are setting down or picking up a passenger or loading or unloading.
Parent Opinion Survey
A reminder to parents/guardians who have received an email with a link to our Parent Opinion Survey, that it is open to Sunday 26 August 2018. The survey is conducted online by ORIMA Research Pty Ltd and only takes 15 minutes to complete. The survey can be accessed via desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile.
Please be assured that your responses are anonymous. The college will use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies.
Thank you for your support.
Course Selection and Student Progress
There is a great deal of activity in the college in regard to subject and course selections for 2019. In the coming fortnight, many students will be finalising their senior pathway choices.
There will be a further opportunity for reflection on progress during the current semester on Wednesday August 29th, with parent teacher and student conferences scheduled on that date. Classes will not operate on that date to allow teachers the time to conduct conferences between 12.00 and 8pm.
The next stage of our building program is now being firmed up, despite the challenges of budget. We will be able to provide you details of the proposed program for the $6.5million following further consultation and agreement with our architects and the Department of Education, in the next newsletter report.
