Our third and final session of Student Goals for 2018 took place on our Junior Campus on Wednesday 21 November during period 3 and on the Senior Campus on Tuesday 27 November during period 4. These sessions on the Junior Campus were led by either a current Year 11, Year 12 or Alumni student, whilst on the Senior Campus, our 2019 Year 12 students led them. These sessions were fantastic and provided the opportunity for students to reflect and celebrate their achievements in working towards their goals set earlier in the year. These reflections are available for viewing by parents/carers via Compass under the Insights tab. Thank you to Miss Hayley Dureau, Mr Matt Sheehan and Mr John Simon for their efforts in organising these sessions, supported by Mr Ras Van der Merwe and Mr Greg Campbell. Congratulations and Thank you to all of our Senior students who led these sessions and to all staff involved for their support in this initiative.
Year 7 in 2019 Information Evening
On Tuesday 27 November we held an Information Evening for families of our new 2019 Year 7 cohort. It was a wonderful event with a real positive atmosphere as we welcomed them to our learning community and introduced them to key people here at the college. Thank you to Mr John Simon, Ms Lauren Kelly, Mrs Colleen Pritchard and Ms Rhonda Palstra for their work in organising this event, along with those in attendance to speak and meet with our new families: Mr Ian MacLeod, Ms Rachael McCracken, Ms Sam Cody, Mrs Danielle Mott, Mrs Margaret Taylor and our 2019 Junior Campus Captains: Hiba A, Gauri A, Izak B, and Lewis C.
On Thursday 22 November we held a Twilight Cinema for a large number of Year 7 and 8 students. Despite the inclement weather moving us into the Hall, it was a great night watching Jumanji with many appreciative students and parents! Thank you to Mr Andrew Morton for organising this great event along with the staff in attendance to help supervise: Mr John Simon, Ms Emma Kerr, Ms Rachael McCracken, Mr Way Lim, Ms Jo Rogers, Ms Sarah Smith and Ms Gokce Delioglu.
