Highlights

Year 7 students are to be congratulated in their readiness and approach in managing NAPLAN testing last week. There were some catch ups for students who were absent during the week. We will distribute student results to families when we receive them later in Term 3.

Monash Technical School have prepared an excellent Supercities program for our Year 8 students who were immersed in problem solving activities to create potential solutions through urban planning and machine learning. Student coded the movement of rovers to undertake tasks such as lifting a rubbish bin and how to detect stimuli that requires a change of movement. Using the design thinking process, students worked collaboratively to develop an invention that offered a solution to an urban issue.

 

Health and Absences

There seems to be a growing number of students who are becoming unwell for a range of reasons. We continue to ask that unwell students remain at home. Parents are asked to complete the attendance requirements in Compass.  If your child is diagnosed with COVID, please contact the school as we need to collate additional information for DET.

 

Coming Up

  • As part of Reconciliation Week, the Music faculty have organised an incursion on Thursday 26 May with indigenous artist Allara Paterson.
  • Music faculty are currently offering bridging bands for students during lunchtimes
  • Many of our students are involved in training for winter sports before and after school and can look forward to representing MWSC at the Year 8 Round Robin on Friday 3 June and Year 7 Round Robin on Thursday 9 June.
