Later in this newsletter you will find a report about our success in the Lions Youth of the Year Competition. Several or our senior students performed excellently in this competition which focusses on public speaking, leadership and citizenship. As our students participated in the various club divisions of this competition I received strong community feedback about the quality of the young people who attend our school. Congratulations to all students involved, and thank you to Mr Stephen Samuel for supporting the participation of so many senior CSC students in this year’s Lions Youth of the Year!
This week our Transition Co-ordinator, Mr Cole Waters, started visiting our local primary schools to promote our College Open Day on May 2. We will be publishing further details about this event during the coming weeks and I warmly invite all interested members of our community to attend. Open Day is always a terrific opportunity to see our school “in action” and hear from our students about their experiences at CSC.
An initiative we are introducing this year is more regular reporting to parents. By the final week of this term parents and carers will be able to access via Xuno the first round of student reports which will be updated every six weeks. We will advise via email and text message when the first round of these reports becomes available at the end of this term, as well as information about how to access the reports on Xuno. We hope that this more regular reporting will help to keep parents and carers better informed about their children’s academic progress, as well as levels of effort and behaviour. I welcome any feedback or questions after the first round of this new reporting. More information on "Changes coming.." page.
As always, much has been occurring at CSC since our last newsletter. In the past few weeks alone we have had our Steiner Trip to Adelaide, the VicSRC conference, student participation in a “closing the gap” community luncheon, activities acknowledging the National Day of Action Against Bullying, interschool sport, auditions for our School Musical (Calamity Jane) and much more. CSC continues to be a vibrant school with a broad range of opportunities for our students.
