Student Goals – Session Two
On Thursday 27 June during period 2 we are held our second Student Goals session. This session focused on providing students in Years 7 to 12 with the opportunity to reflect on their progress made using the strategies and evidence when they set goals earlier this year. Our Year 12 students in house groups again led these sessions with the support of staff. Thank you to Miss Hayley Dureau, Mr Matt Sheehan and Mr John Simon for their efforts and involvement and the support and work of Mr Scott Smith, Mr Greg Campbell and our dedicated teachers.
Mount Matters Forum
Thank you to Miss Hayley Dureau for her efforts in organising our Mount Matters Forum on Wednesday 26 June. It was a wonderful opportunity for our Mount Matters students at Years 7, 8, 9, and 10, supported by other student leaders, to present their work to each other and a large number of our staff. We look forward to them providing further input into what is working well and what we can further develop at our college. Thank you to all staff and students who attended the forum and various sessions throughout this term in supporting this great program.
We have been working hard on sourcing some great prizes for our college raffle this year. Nearly $5000 worth of prizes have been donated including an ACER Notebook, a laptop, and many other fantastic prizes.
Each student and staff member in the college has been allocated one booklet of ten tickets. Tickets are numbered and must be accounted for. All tickets and money must be returned directly to the college – general office Junior Campus and Bursar’s office Senior Campus – either sold or unsold before Monday 22 July. If students/staff sell all of their tickets they will be eligible to be entered into the ticket seller’s prize draw where five great prizes are on offer. The raffle will be drawn on Thursday 1 August at the opening night of the college production.
Please support the college by selling all of your tickets. Money raised over the past years has gone towards the purchase of goal posts on the Senior Campus oval and outdoor seating.
Visit from The Second Affiliated Middle School of Huadong Normal University
We are excited to be welcoming some students and staff from our Sister School in Shanghai, The Second Affiliated Middle School of Huadong Normal University, to us from 29 July to 8 August next term. Thank you to all of those families of Year 7 and 8 students who have volunteered to host a student during this time. We look forward to further developing the relationship between our two great schools, and providing them with experiences of our education system, state and country.
Semester Reports and Semester Two classes
Our semester reports will be published to families via Compass on Friday 28 June. Congratulations to all students who have applied themselves throughout the semester, reflecting on their growth in learning and identifying further areas of improvement.
Students at the Junior Campus have started Semester Two moving into new subjects as part of this changeover. As we move towards the term break it is worth reflecting on the first half of the year which has included learning across the eight learning areas, as well as camps, sport, excursions and competitions.
I wish all students, staff, parents and carers a safe and relaxing break. We look forward to seeing you back in Term 3 ready for another semester of learning.
