Associate Principal's Report

As the first term draws to a close it is great to see that the vast majority of our students have settled well into the school year. Walking around the school it is terrific to see the buzz of activity in classes, sports grounds, swimming pools, and feedback from teachers and students indicates that many of our Year 9 and 10 students are actively engaging in their specialist classes and their internship program.

On Wednesday it was terrific to see all students completing their ‘leaving to learn’ activities and we hope that they were a valuable contribution to each student’s Advisory programme. Please refer to our Facebook page for specific information on each of the Advisory activities that our students completed. Many of our Year 9 and 10 students have now established an internship placement or participated in a shadow day. During this time students are encouraged to work through their passion and work away from the school. Students are linked with a mentor and work in a placement of their choosing.

As students will be off the school site it is very important that all appropriate details be arranged such as insurance and transport. I would encourage all parents and carers to support their children by keeping in regular contact with Advisory teachers and our learning through internship (LTI) Coordinator Ms Erica Mutch. If you are able to offer support to the school and would like to consider accepting a student for an internship we would be very keen to meet with you and discuss the programme.

Next week is the last week for Term 1 and all staff and students will be busy completing student exhibitions. This is an important time for all parents and carers to meet with Advisory teachers to work through student individual learning plans and discuss further goals to work towards next term. The school always welcomes parents and the greater the communication between school, students and parents/carers the better the outcome.

We are currently requesting that staff, students and parents complete the Tell Them From Me survey. This survey asks what the school is doing well and what we can do to make school better. Please come into the office to complete this survey or ask your Advisory teacher when you come in to school to complete your exhibitions or go to the link below.
