From the Principal…
It’s interesting to look back from the last week of Term 3 and reflect on what we have achieved as a school community over the last ten weeks. Our travelers to Japan returned from another successful home-stay trip to Chikushi HS, and we inaugurated a new sister-school relationship with the BPI Senior High School in Bandung, Indonesia. Ski Campers took advantage of magnificent snow. We enjoyed an excellent senior school production of Chicago. We guided students from Years 9 to 11 through their subject selections. We completed the major part of our School Review, and now await the report. We had Maths competitions, debating, RAID Days, sporting success and a whole range of different excursions. All this on top of our regular teaching and learning program. I think we need a holiday!
This Wednesday (after school) and Thursday (from 12pm onwards), Parent-Teacher interviews are running. These are very important occasions for building relationships between the school and community and creating a shared understanding about how your child is progressing. The Department has a helpful online page with ideas for getting the most out of these meetings:
I will also be available to meet parents and carers. I’m happy to have an informal chat with you, so please feel free to grab my attention as I walk around. Otherwise, you can email me and make a formal appointment.
Tracey Summerton returns from her internship at Mt Ridley P-12 College this week, and my thanks to Greg Savvinos for his work in her place. Greg has led the development of our new SRC and the selection of 2019’s School Captains. We announce the successful candidates this afternoon.
Let me wish all of our students and staff a safe and refreshing break, and my best wishes to our Year 12 students who are moving rapidly toward exams.
