If you have children in Prep – Year 8 who will not be returning to PCC in 2016 we urge you to notify the office as soon as possible. This information is crucial to ensuring we can plan effectively for the year ahead. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Earlier this term we provided families with an Activities Planner for Term 4. We have now updated this to include all of the end of year activities. Please print and use for your own future planning.
If you have any questions about the activities listed, please speak to your child’s Homeroom teacher.
“Staff at our most recent successful Professional Development day spent time planning for the introduction of iPads across the College. It was a terrific day of learning and enthusiasm for the up coming expansion of our iPad program to cover years 3 - 9. We are able to offer parents access to an online portal provided by JB Hi–Fi that enables parents the opportunity to purchase their child’s iPad at education prices.

Introducing another Cyber mascot FIREWALL. Do you know what websites are safe to use? What do we need to have on our devices to stop malicious software or hackers from gaining access? We need a Firewall. This mascot is very important to think about because not only do we have to protect ourselves online but we also need to protect our device! #cyberbullyingfree
We are running another series of information sessions for parents to learn more about the College’s iPad program. These sessions will be more practical and hands on. We will cover how to ‘child proof’ your iPad, working with your iTunes account, installing, arranging and deleting apps and many other essential tips.
Congratulations to Riva Dubey from 5S who represented Australia at the National Scrabble Championships in Perth last weekend. She was one of the youngest competitors on the Australian team! That’s a triple-letter effort! Earlier this year, Riva also won the Spellmasters Competition that was held in the city. Look out for her on The Great Australian Spelling Bee on Channel 10 next year! (No pressure, Riva!)
