Let's hear from the Principal
Dear Parents and Carers
It is with great excitement that I have resumed work at Castlemaine Secondary College this term. I am truly appreciative of the support I have received since my appointment as Principal late last term. I have always known that there has been very strong community support for our school, but this has been particularly evident to me over the past month. I look forward to working with our entire school community as we build on our school’s many strengths and work to make it an even better school for all young people in the Mt Alexander Shire.
The start of Term Three is always a busy period of time as we begin the process for selecting subject preferences for the following year. Following the parent information sessions that have just been held, all parents and students are encouraged to make an interview with the appropriate Mentor Teacher on Tuesday 1 August to submit their 2018 subject selections. Information has already been sent home about this interview day, but there are also further reminders included later in this newsletter. Although our current Year 7 and 12 students will not be required to enter subject selections for 2018, the mentors of these students will still be available for interviews on Tuesday. This will provide Year 7 and 12 students, along with their parents or carers, an opportunity to meet with their mentors to discuss general progress, review any issues from the mid-year report and to discuss goals for the remainder of the year. These interviews will run from 12pm – 7pm next Tuesday 1 August, and there will be no classes occurring on this day.
