Mr Paul van Breugel
The colder weather of late Autumn and early winter is starting to set in and I am sure we are all noticing the shorter days as the term progresses.
Across the college we work hard to focus on providing every opportunity for deep learning for our students. This means students may often be working on problem solving tasks or their learning may be much more activity based than that of previous generations. Our programs such as the CLIC program, VCAL and the inquiry or application tasks your children undertake in their other classes are all designed to build their problem solving skills and focus on deeper levels of learning. If you aren't sure about the way in which your child's work relates to their learning take the opportunity to ask them about what they are doing and discuss their school work and learning with them.
In the last newsletter I referenced challenges parents have experienced with our uniform provider. We have had further discussions and expect to see improved service in the coming weeks. The winter jackets are still on backorder and are expected by early July. In the interim please let us know, via your child's form / TLC teacher if your child does not have uniform due to supply difficulties and we will work together to minimise any problems.
As you should all know we have over the past years moved to a 1:1 laptop program from years 7 - 12. We are still having difficulty with some families in year 9 and 12 not making the payments for leased laptops. Please ensure you meet the payments required to use a leased laptop through the school.
