Since the start of term two we have resumed tours at the Junior Campus. The purpose of these tours is to allow our prospective students and their families the opportunity to see our college on a typical learning day.
We have had close to 500 visitors come through so far this term, and the feedback about the conduct of our students, their work ethic, and the positive and respectful learning environment that we share has been overwhelming. We are so fortunate to have the wonderful students and teachers that we do, and it has been a delight to showcase both groups in their element.
Furthermore, Ms Sam Cody, Mrs Debbie Sekula and I have been joined on each tour by our Junior Campus Captains, Vice Captains, and House Captains. Each of these students has impressed us with their impromptu public-speaking and considered responses regarding their experiences at our school. They are truly a credit to us, and their families.
A busy Term
Over the past few weeks the Junior Campus has been busy, as always. Year 7s completed NAPLAN for the first time as secondary school students, both Year 7 and 8 undertook the annual Attitudes to School Survey, the SYN Radio program has continued, and the Year 7 Monash Tech School visits have resumed. Additionally we have had students training for and competing in various sports teams, the Production rehearsals have been in full swing, we’ve had guest speakers, and of course the everyday teaching and learning program. This is without even mentioning the dozen or so lunchtime clubs that run each week.
The Junior Campus offers a lot of opportunities for students to try new things, meet new people, and share in a sense of enjoyment in their surroundings. I would like to congratulate those students who have participated this term, and encourage the others to find their own way to be active participants in our thriving learning community.
