Mr Nicholas Adamou
Welcome to Term 3. I trust that everybody had a relaxing break and ready for a very busy term. In particular the Year 12 students are coming closer to the end of their final VCE exams. I also trust that all parents and carers have logged on to the school portal and received their children’s reports, celebrated their achievements and also discussed areas for improvements. The beginning of a term is always a good time to reflect on the previous performance and set new goals to be achieved for the remaining of the academic year.
Any parent/carer who for some reason hasn’t been able to log onto the school parent portal (Compass) to receive their child’s report, I urge to immediately contact the school to be provided with support in order to be able to receive your child’s Semester One report.
During this term the students from Year 8 to Year 10 will undergo a rigorous subject selection process and counselling to ensure that everyone is successful in their individual pathways for the next academic year. Parent information evenings and discussions will also take place to inform and support the students in this process. Details of these evenings will be communicated via invitations, Compass notifications and SMS messaging. I encourage all parents/carers to attend with their child and I hope to meet as many as possible during these evenings.
The teachers and the Principal Team are looking forward to see as many parents/carers at the upcoming Parent/Teacher Conferences on Monday, 29 July, to discuss the progress of the students.
The beginning of this Term also saw the completion of the Capital Works project. Stage 5 was completed and delivered during the school break. The brand new and refurbished B, C, D Wings, court yards, car park bring most of the school’s facilities to a great standard, including the latest technologies (Touch screen and WiFi technologies), 100% air-conditioned Learning and Teaching spaces and of course beautiful court yards.
The students and staff are very excited with the outcome of the capital works school refurbishment and are very happy to be working in these outstanding teaching and learning spaces. I invite parents and carers to visit the school to see the state of the art new or refurbished facilities.
Wishing everyone a very productive Term 3.
