Over the last two weeks, all students at the college have been involved in end of year Student Goals reflection sessions. On Wednesday 20 November our 2019 Year 7 and 8 students took part in a session on the Junior Campus, led by a mix of 2019 Year 12s and Year 11s and alumni. It was wonderful to see our 2017 College Captains Neha and Campbell return to take part in the session. Thank you to all of the students who led sessions, including 2019 Year 12s who returned just a week after finishing their final VCAA exams, and 2019 Year 11s, many of whom were still in the middle of their exams period.
On Tuesday 26 November almost 300 of our incredible 2020 Year 12 students stepped up and led sessions for the 2020 Year 10, 11 and 12 students on day 2 of the Early Commencement Program. Feedback from the staff involved was exceptional. On all accounts, our incoming Year 12s are showing great leadership already. We are excited to have them as the leaders of the college for the next twelve months!
Thank you to Mr Andrew Batchelor, Mr John Simon and Mr Matt Sheehan for their time and effort in leading this wonderful opportunity for our students.

Well done to the Junior Campus Captains and College Captains for hosting the assemblies.
The 2020 Year 8 and 12 Leaders will take part in a full-day 2020 Student Leadership Planning Day next Friday 6 December. A number of past College Captains will attend and have lunch with the leaders.

Friday 29 November was a casual clothes day on both campuses. The money raised will be donated to the Monash Children’s hospital. Well done to the 2019 Year 10 Student Leadership Team for overseeing the organisation of the day, which included an ice-cream truck on the Senior Campus!
