As we move through November and into December the Middle School students in Year 10 have been busy with exams which will continue next week. Our Year 9 group have been engaged in the Explore program this week and will undertake exams in the coming week. Following the exam period students will be busy in classrooms starting their 2022 courses as part of the college’s Early Commence Program. This program is designed to give students a head start on their learning for 2022.
Year 9 Explore Program
The much anticipated Explore Program happened this week, which was fantastic to see. Students in Year 9 spent two days exploring the city as part of the Explore program, which included a scavenger hunt, a tour of the city’s laneways and a session on Homelessness run by the Salvation Army. Teachers have commented on how well our students engaged with all of the activities on offer. Thanks must go Meagan Merlino for her leadership of this program, thanks also to Wayne Griffin and Sarah Smith for their work helping to make it run smoothly.
The tendering process for our new STEAM Centre has closed. The process of tender selection is well underway and we hope to announce the successful builder prior to Christmas. We have been working closely with partners including our architects BKK, Project Managers – Johnstaff and the Victorian Schools Building Authority.
