On Monday 13 November we welcomed back another of our Alumni students, Eliza Baker from the class of 2004, to present to some of our current Year 9 students. Eliza Baker is a Zoologist who specialises in working with birds of prey. Thank you to Ms Elise Dunstan, our coordinator through the OurSchool program, along with our staff who made this event possible: Ms Lisa McKiernan and Mr Bill Thomas. We look forward to welcoming back more Alumni at future events.
Thank you to everyone who ordered mangoes as part of our fundraising efforts. We had 210 trays ordered, which is a great effort. We are expecting and will confirm with you delivery in the week beginning 4 December.
Year 9 2018 Transition
Thank you to all of the teachers across both campuses involved in the Year 8 into 9 Transition program last week. Feedback from students has been positive as we aim to ensure a smooth transition through the Early Commencement Program and into next year. Thank you and well done to Ms Lisa McKiernan, Ms Kate Reichman and Ms Bec Kosach for their work in leading these sessions with our students.
This week has seen the commencement of Year 10 exams with Year 9 students beginning their exams next week. Feedback will be provided to students by their teachers on Monday 27 November. The Early Commencement Program commences across the college on Tuesday 28 November. We look forward to students’ continual development in their learning over the remainder of the year.
