How quickly is Term 1 moving along.  We have less than 3 weeks remaining but I have been really impressed with the overall work ethic of our students and their involvement in so many different aspects of school life.  Students are becoming increasingly clearer about what they are expected to know and understand in each of their lessons and our focus on increasing student learning growth will continue throughout 2018.

It was pleasing to see large numbers of parents and students at the Year 10 Information Night last week.  There were a range of presentations to engage our students and parents including how to succeed in Year 10, Study Skills, the VCE and Work Experience.  Thank you to our presenters on the night, Lisa McKiernan, Deb Sekula and Stephanie Thomas.  Thanks also Jan Pugsley, Glenda Splatt and Mardi de Kretser for also being there on the night to meet our Year 10 students and parents

Accessibility Grant Building Works

These works include building ramp access to the VCE Centre and to the Oval on the Senior Campus.  These works are progressing well with the second phase about to commence including work on the oval.  These works, which are fully funded by DET, help to further enhance our college environment.
