On Friday 23 June we conducted an Emergency Management Drill (lockdown). It was great to see all students and staff able to follow our procedures very well. In this case students and staff are required to lock doors, shut windows, be silent and hide from potential intruders.
Throughout the year we conduct various types of drills on different days and at different times to ensure all members of the school community know exactly what to do in an emergency situation.
Attendance - Everyday Counts
It was great to see the number of students who are making the most of their learning opportunities by attending every day in Term 2. There are also a number of students who have not missed a day of school this year. The Year 12 students are leading the way with 31% of Year 12 students attended every day in Term 2 and 17% of Year 12 students have attended every day for Semester One. The Year 10 had an impressive attendance percentage for Term 2 with 27% of the cohort attending every day for Term 2. The Year 11 students and year 7 students weren’t too far behind either. The Year 7, 10 and 11 students were equal across the semester with 15% of students from these year levels attending every day for Semester One.

School for Student Leadership
It is with excitement that we have four Year 9 students – Kyla Donnelly, Gracie Harber, Sam Myszka and Zac Tarquinio attending the School for Student Leadership this term. They are attending the Snowy River Campus. These students will be participating in leadership building activities throughout the term. They will develop many skills and we look forward to seeing and hearing about the great adventures these students have throughout Term 2.
