Second Hand Uniform Sale
Due to the school holidays we will be holding two uniform sales. The first one will be before the holidays on Tuesday the 28th of March from 8:15-9:15am and 2:45- 3:15pm. The second sale will be held during the first week back on Wednesday the 19th of April at the times listed above.
The sale will be held in a portable near the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden. You could enter through the pedestrian gate on Tom Roberts Parade near the garden. Please note that we can only take cash payments. Items are mostly $5-$10 each. We will also have a number of worn items for $2 each. We don't have all items of the uniform available in all sizes as it depends on the donations that we receive. We are low on senior uniform at the moment.
If you have any items of uniform in good condition that you no longer need and would like to donate to our sale, please drop them off at the office. All of the money raised will assist families in need with their uniforms.

Engagement and Wellbeing
Student Safety and SWPBS
‘We Are Safe’ is one of our four SWPBS Expected Behaviours and includes expectations both within and beyond the College grounds. The Active Travel Launch, meticulously organised and rolled out with major success under the leadership of our Community Partnerships Co-ordinator Rebecca Thornton, promotes many of the expectations included in the Student Matrix. We encourage all students and families to maintain support for the initiative by adhering to safety measures highlighted both through the launch and within the Student and Community Support matrices.
Students are reminded that although not compulsory in Term Two, hats should still be kept handy for those sunny Autumn days when the UV rays can still do damage. Students and parents are also reminded that our Uniform guidelines offer numerous alternatives suitable for the cooler days ahead. Remember, if it’s too cold for shorts and dresses, long sleeve tops and long pants or skirts with leggings should be selected. Visible skivvies under short sleeve tops and leggings or tights under the school dress are not permitted. There are also a number of jacket options available at Noone to keep the cold at bay.
Active Travel Launch & Walk and Wheel Wednesdays
We held a very successful launch on Friday the 17th of March which was also Ride2School Day. We had positive feedback from students, parents and staff. The organisations and businesses involved on the day were also very impressed with the participation from our community.

Ride to School Day
Last year Mrs Kang’s Year 4 class began an advertising campaign to support our active travel launch. They designed educational posters, wrote songs, created movies and came up with some great ideas to launch the program. Congratulations to the students from Mrs Kang’s class of 2016 who did this hard work.
A huge thank you to the MAG Green Gang students and the Senior Environment Leaders for their work on Friday, handing out tokens to those who walked and rode to school.
It was great to see so many cars off our roads, reducing pollution and helping look after the environment. Thank you to all of the PCC families who were able to join in for the day.
Helmet Design Competition
Congratulations to Himmat Randawa from 2EM , Nyneisha Thakur from 2EM and Victoria Bal from 8G for their winning bike helmet designs which our Senior Environment Leaders judged. Himmat’s helmet design was inspired by fire and Nyneisha’s by nature. Victoria’s design was very innovative.
