Featured Story

The speed at which the end of the Term is arriving is somewhat frightening.  By this stage we would expect most students to be starting to have well established work routine both at home and school.  If you feel that things are not yet settled please contact your child’s tutor or class teacher or their Year Level Coordinator.

It has been pleasing to see so many of our students involved in a variety of activities outside the school Jye Burton, Bailey Sharp, Eliza Wales, Ben De Bortoli, Sophie McMinimee and Ethan McMinimee have achieved outstanding sporting results recently, please refer to Mr Perks’ Physical Education Report for further information.  It was also pleasing to see our leaders have success at the local and regional rounds of the Lion’s Youth of the Year with Ben Kellock, Hannah Lacy and Chelsea Bell of Year 12 wining the overall and Public Speaking prizes at Bacchus Marsh, whilst Chelsea Bell has won the Public Speaking component of the regional competition.

One of the focuses of the school this year is to enable results to be available to parents earlier than they have in the past and in a way that centralises the activity.  This is the first component of a change to how we will structure reporting across the school.  You will be receiving a letter outlining the change to how we will structure reporting across the school.  Senior School parents will be receiving a letter outlining the change in detail in the next week.  In essence two weeks after a major assessment task has been completed the results of students will be available for parents to view, through the parent portal.  Over the next twelve months we will be providing an array of additional information to enable you to analyse what various results mean and track your child’s performance.  I am sure this new functionality in the parent portal will assist parents in providing the positive interest in their children’s progress which is so important for academic success and improvement.
