The highlight of our college music program is our mid year concert. This year the Gala Concert will be held on Thursday 21 September at 7.00pm in our Senior Campus hall. All of our college ensembles will be performing. Please come and support our outstanding Instrumental Music Program.
The cost of a ticket is $10 for adults and $5 for students and children 2+. Students performing are not required to purchase a ticket.
Student/Parent/Teacher conferences will take place on Thursday 14 September between 1.00-4.30pm and 5.00-7.30pm. All appointments will again be conducted on the Senior Campus. Full details were forwarded to parents/carers via Compass on Wednesday 6 September. Bookings opened from 6.00pm on 6 September.
However, if parents/carers of VCE students attended the VCE conferences earlier this term, you are not required to book another appointment. If you do wish to book another appointment, available times were online from 7 September. Preference is given to Years 7 to 10 students.
Students are not required to attend school for regular classes on the day but are expected to attend the appointments.
Just a reminder that the Term 3 Working Bee will be held on Sunday 17 September on the Senior Campus from 9.00am until 12pm. If you could come and support us on the day, we would be most grateful.
