Year 10 City Experience and the Years 11 and 12 Conferences
The Year 10 City Experience and the Year 11 and 12 Conferences were held from Monday 20 – Wednesday 22 February and, as you will read in the accompanying Year Level Co-ordinators’ Reports, all of these events were highly successful and enjoyable. I was delighted to join the Year 12s on Monday evening for their session with Dr Michael Carr-Gregg and again through the day on Tuesday, and then to join the Year 10s on Tuesday evening. It was especially pleasing to see first-hand how well organised the programs were and how well behaved our students are when out and about in public representing the School.
House Athletics Sports
On Friday 24 February our House Athletics Sports was held at the Bill Sewart reserve in East Burwood. I would like to commend our House Captains for their commitment to their House and the leadership they demonstrated both on the day and in lead-up Assemblies. It was, however, disappointing to see that a number of senior college students chose not to provide their House Captains with the support they needed in making the choice not to attend on the day.
Student Reflections and Goals
This week in Utility time Senior College students will be asked to reflect on their reports from Semester 2 last year and consider what goals they can define for year ahead: these may be in terms of achievements and/or actions.
These goals will be useful reference points for both the students and their pastoral mentors and will be revisited throughout the year.
Rehearsals for this year’s School Musical, ‘Hairspray’, are well and truly going “full steam ahead” and everyone in the community is looking forward to another outstanding production from our cast. A large number of Senior College students are involved as either cast or crew. Performances are scheduled for Wednesday 22 March (preview night) and then from 23 – 25 March. Tickets are already available through the following link.
Interim Reports and Parent-Teacher Interviews
Parents/Guardians will soon receive information about our Term 1 Interim Reports process. Pease be aware that Student-Parent-Teacher interviews are scheduled for Tuesday 21, Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 29 March.
With kind regards to all,
