Good Afternoon Parents, Guardians and Students,
What a great community we have here at Cobram AGS. I see our key aspirations of Integrity, Endeavour, and Community clearly evident whenever I move about the school.
Core business of Cobram AGS is furthering the educational opportunities of all students at the School, and facilitating development of academic and practical skills and competencies. Part of the reason for our continued success is our commitment to the creation of community, and determination to enhance studies and social opportunities.
In this space, there has been much excitement around the school since the last Crier, with the very enjoyable Prep Hike, the fabulous efforts of the girl’s badminton finals, the very successful Year 3/4 Camp and culminating with the wonderful Middle School Social last night (Thursday Sept 19). Thanks to all staff and helpers involved in these events. Your commitment to the continued improvement of our community is greatly appreciated.
As we head into the Term Three holidays and look back, it is inspiring to see how far we have come – as a School and as a community noting ALL the events and opportunities of the term, and the efforts of staff members and helpers that have gone into providing these. I sincerely thank students, parents and staff members for their efforts, commitment and enthusiasm towards continued improvement of our vibrant School community.
Many students, especially those in senior classes, will have school work that beckons in spite of the upcoming two week break from classes. All students need to ensure that the holidays include at least a short break from studies, and a sufficient amount of time to relax and indulge in other pursuits before refocusing towards a successful study session through to the end of year. Some might call this ‘recharging the batteries’. This is particularly important for Year 12 students, but applies to all.
Students and families should expect to see Interim Reports for all students late this week, or early in the upcoming holidays. A link will be opened on the School website as of Tuesday October 1 to allow parents to book interviews with teachers for the first week of Term Four. Parent/Teacher interviews are the perfect chance for parents and students alike to discuss successes and challenges with their teachers, and address concerns or issues that may potentially affect a student in their ability to perform to their best. I trust that all staff members are of assistance in ensuring as smooth as possible a path for each and every student in the School. I encourage all parents and students to make the most of the chance to engage with teachers at this event.
Parents wishing to pursue further conversations with staff are always welcome, and are advised to make contact with the School Office during business hours to organise a suitable time.
I wish all members of our community a safe and restful break. I look forward to renewing our association early in October.
Please Note: Parents and students are advised that the School Office will be closed during the first week of the holidays, opening again from 10.00am Monday September 30.
