The Boys’ and Girls’ Swimming Carnivals have been a great success with our newly elected House Captains for 2018 organising and leading their House teams exceptionally well. These are the first House activities for which the new Captains are responsible and they have handled the organisation and the pressure well – rallying their individual Houses, “jumping in feet first” and ensuring that they have been “fun days”.
We are in the “home stretch” for classes for Year 11, with the last official teaching day for 2017 courses being Thursday 9 November. Friday 10 November is a Study Day with the Year 11 examinations taking place from Monday 13 to Thursday 16 November.
On Friday 17 November, all Year 11 students are required to attend the compulsory Fit 2 Drive program which educates young drivers on the risks and responsibilities of driving. Presentations from trainers, police officers, and firemen will complement exercises within the classroom to provide a comprehensive overview of their responsibilities, not only as drivers but as passengers as well. The day will begin at 8:30am and finish at 12:30pm.
Monday 20 to Friday 24 November will be the week of the Transition Program, when students will attend Year 12 classes and receive their holiday homework to provide a start for their 2018 Year 12 VCE and IB programs.
