Mrs Sue Coffey
As 2016 draws to a close l would like to thank all the students, their parents and the staff at the college for a terrific year. As outlined at Presentation Day a lot of wonderful things happen at our college every year and when we take the time to reflect on the achievements and opportunities, l wonder how we managed to fit it all in. A big thank you to all the students and parents who attended on Friday afternoon, all students were expected to attend and the vast majority of students were present. The broad variety of awards reflected a wide variety of talents and the performances also showcased some of the talented vocalists accompanied by Mr Nathan Byrne.
The celebration of achievements and the recognition of students who are not always acknowledged made this a very special afternoon. Thank you to the organisers, Mrs Simone Howard and Mrs Cate Hackett, they spent several weeks pulling the event together and it was a real credit to them and their organisational skills.
The school magazine Visions has captured much of what occurred during the year with photographs and stories from students and staff. The majority of these were collected at the end of our Presentation on Friday afternoon, for anyone who paid for this magazine but didn’t collect please do so this week at the senior campus office.
Head Start was a huge success this year, the VCAL team have reported a terrific start to 2017 as have the other Year levels. A reminder to Year 12 students with holiday homework, getting off to an early start can lighten the load in first term, so make sure you do your reading and prior learning before school begins next year.
This will be the last College Connection for 2016 so l would like to wish everyone in our community a safe and happy holiday and l look forward to working at the college again next year.
