From the Principal
We have come to the end of what has once again been an extremely busy term. It is important that students take the opportunity to reflect upon all they have achieved to date, and what they intend to focus on during Term 4. This is especially the case for our Year 12 students who will now be preparing for their final school examinations. I would like to encourage all Year 11 and 12 students undertaking Unit 3 and 4 subject studies to take the opportunity over the break to prepare for their forthcoming VCAA examinations. At the same time, it is also important that they afford themselves the opportunity to rest and recharge for the challenges ahead. It is my hope that all Year 12 students are able to say at the end of the year that they have given their best and that they have no regrets. I wish all students and families a wonderful term break and hope that it provides valuable time to spend with family and friends.
A number of staff members are leaving us today. I would like to thank Meg Gleeson who has been with us since the beginning of the year replacing Anna Kissane. She has been a valuable addition to the Biology team and I know she will be greatly missed by her students and colleagues. We wish you all the best for your future teaching Meg. We also farewell Matthew Tiscia who has been leading our IT technical support team. We wish Matthew all the best with his new job opportunity. A big thank you also to our two Chinese language assistants who leave us today. Dan Li and Lei Liu, we thank you for all your hard work in assisting our Year 12 Chinese students in particular. Finally, we farewell Meihui Wang who is finishing up with us today to start her family leave. We wish Meihui all the best for the arrival of her second child.
