All of our teachers and staff have been excited to welcome back our students during the past three weeks and encourage them to self-reflect, get back into a school routine, focus on the positives on returning, and developing social connections.
We have continued to focus on student wellbeing during this time with a home group program developed around the themes of ‘Reconnect’, ‘Recognise’ and ‘Reflection’ to further support the transition of our students back to on-site learning. Thank you to Mr John Simon, Mr Nic Barca, Ms Sarah Chase and Mr Paul Graham for their efforts in leading the development of this. It has been great to see our students enjoying their learning whilst respecting the various measures we have put in place to support the safety of all members of our college community.
Our semester reports will be published to families via Compass on Friday 26 June. Congratulations to all students who have applied themselves throughout the semester, certainly in a unique and different learning environment. These reports are a great opportunity for our students to reflect further on their growth in learning and identify further areas of improvement.
Students commence their Semester Two at the beginning of next term, moving into some new subjects as part of this changeover. A reminder for parents/carers that we have our Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences scheduled on Thursday 23 July from 4pm to 7pm, bookings will be available via Compass shortly.
I wish all students, staff and parents/carers a safe and relaxing break. We look forward to seeing you back in Term 3 ready for the second semester of learning on Monday 13 July.
