Our third and final session of Student Goals for 2019 took place on our Junior Campus on Wednesday 20 November during period 2 and on the Senior Campus on Tuesday 26 November during period 2. 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 Scott Smith 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 2020 Information Evening
On Tuesday 26 November we held an Information Evening for families of our new 2020 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, 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: Mrs Karen Wade, Mr Ian MacLeod, Ms Gabe Windsor, Ms Jo Rogers, Mr James Johnston, Ms Rachael McCracken, Mr Mark Quiambao, Mrs Danielle Mott, Mrs Margaret Taylor and some of our 2020 Junior Campus Captains.
Junior Campus Assembly
On Monday 25 November we held a Junior Campus Assembly to start our Early Commencement program. This was an opportunity for our 2020 Year 8 students to come together as we formally acknowledged our 2020 Junior Campus Captains and House Captains. We also had Ms Kimberlee Wells, Alumni and School Captain in 1994, return and address students related to leadership and her learnings and experiences. Thank you to Mr John Simon for organising the assembly, along with the Principal Team and Junior School Team for ensuring a great occasion.
