As we moved further into December, the holidays started to draw closer with students recently completing the Early Commencement Program.  This year’s Year 8 students became our Year 9 students for 2021 and our Year 9s moving into their Year 10 classes.  This program has many benefits including helping to transition students into their new year level and it also allows them to better understand the learning program they will be undertaking in each subject in the coming year.


Duke of Edinburgh Expeditions

Thanks to Mr Adam Laan, Mr Jaidyn Newport, Ms Ruby Hooke and Ms Emma Kerr for taking out our Year 9 students on their Duke of Edinburgh expedition last week.  Students spent the week on the water at Lake Eildon as they completed the final hurdle of this award.  As students collected their bags and said farewell, they all commented on how much they enjoyed the week.  Well done to all!


Year 10 Gala

Wow, what a night!  The Year 10 Gala was fantastic celebration for our Year 10 students.  The students all looked sharped, they took a million photos and danced the night away!  Thanks to staff who attended on the night.  Thank you to Mrs Meagan Merlino for her leadership to get this great event happening for our students.


Term 1 2022

Ms Sarah Chase is going to be in the role of Acting Campus Principal Middle School throughout Term 1 as I take Long Service Leave.  Sarah brings a wealth of experience to the role.  She will continue to work closely with both students and staff in this role across Term 1.


Finally, as this year closes we start to look towards next year and the opportunities for learning and growth that will be provided at the college.  I look forward to welcoming students back to college next year at they continue their learning journey at Mount Waverley Secondary College.  Can I wish all families a safe and happy holiday.
