Welcome back to Term 3

Welcome back to all students and parents to our second semester of learning for the year.  It was fantastic to welcome our Middle School students back on campus after the break.  Student were settling in well which was pleasing to see.

With the move into lockdown happening rapidly, I would like thanks students and parents for their flexible approach.  Once again students have shown high levels of resilience and have engaged well in the online environment.

We look forward to welcoming back on site in not to distant future, where we will again connect in classrooms for face to face for learning.

STEAM Centre

Work on the STEAM Centre is continuing at rapid rate.  All documentation for tendering is currently being worked on with our architects, BKK, and project managers, Johnstaff, as well as the VSBA.  The start of tendering process is not far away, which means we are getting closer to the start of the building phase later this year.
