FROM THE ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL 

WELCOME BACK TO TERM 2, 2017!


First term 2017 has been an exciting time for teaching and learning at Cranbourne Secondary College. We welcomed a new  group of Year 7 students and introduced them to our  newly designed curriculum. They have  thoroughly enjoyed the  emphasis on deep learning.


Classrooms have been very productive as CATS, SACS and KLA assessments have been completed. There were some encouraging conversations about learning progress occurring at Student Parent Teachers conferences held last week, helping to further support learning.


I have been privileged to be  invited to a range of activities outside the classroom including Polyhood, MultiPride, Point Leo Surf Day, SRC Grip conference, Athletics carnival to name a few amazing highlights there has been plenty happening to keep students actively engaged both inside and outside the classroom.

 

I have been proud to be a part of the election of a new Student Leadership team and the introduction of form captains for every class 7-12.

 

The MultiPride group has also shown great strength in  numbers and delivered a series of  student conversations during  lunch breaks.

It has been a great start to the year!

Australia's Most and Least Satisfied University Students

Check out this newspaper article for an insight into student experience at different universities.

 

 

The QUILT website (https://www.qilt.edu.au) is the best source of information if you are trying to work out where you would like to go to study in the future. You might just be surprised!

Student Exchange Opportunities

If you want to save some cash and reduce the price of your exchange program, the deadline for Early Bird Discount applications has been extended until Sunday 30th April.

 

This deadline is for programs departing between October 2017 - March 2018.  If you haven't completed your application form yet, you can apply online now!

 

 

Host families needed!

In preparation for our exchange students’ arrivals in July, we are now looking for volunteer host families and seek your support. 

Our students come from all corners of the world! They look forward to sharing their interests and becoming a member of an Australian family soon. Hosting an exchange student is a fantastic experience for the whole family. Not only will they gain a new family member and friend from overseas this way, families become more aware of and gain a better understanding of their own culture and other cultures around the world.

 

We greatly appreciate your support and hope to receive enquiries from your community soon.

WHAT'S HAPPENING...

Breakfast Club serving up weekly!

 A small team of teachers and students set about delivering a program that will both build students stamina during the day and education around food nutrition.

 

Running every Wednesday morning from 7:45am-8:30 in H2 - all students and teachers are welcome to help themselves to a selection of toast, spreads, cereals, juice, Up and Go’s and fruit.

Pancake Day a flippin success!
 

The students raised $130 for UnitingCare, which in just a recess is very impressive!

 

This is mainly due to the massive efforts of the students in the SRC, they really came together and worked hard on it and already, are proving to lead the way with pride!

On Saturday the 8th April some of our senior students exhibited their ART and performances at the Journey to Self Exhibition organised by The Centre for Multicultural Youth  .

POLYHOOD: 2017

A tribute to tradition...

 

 

 

Polyhood 2017 was a great example of what this college is all about: more than ever, the community spirit was alive and well throughout the night of performance.

 

Annette Evans did a fantastic job directing what was a fabulous expo of our talented young people.

We are blessed to have her put her heart and soul into these events.

A packed-out theatre of students, parents and teachers alike, witnessed some emotional and entertaining performances.

 

Sene Smalley our school captain delivered a moving tribute to Anita Templin who was always a proud supporter of Polyhood.

I was extremely proud to be a part of this traditional school event where the community expresses how a village can educate a child.
