As Term 4 continues to roll on, we are all hard at work preparing for 2019. So many exciting things are on the cards for 2019, with many of these things being reliant upon our student numbers and access to resources.
Please ensure you contact the office if your child is not returning to PCC next year. Also, please consider donating any uniforms to our College. Many students could really benefit from access to second hand uniforms that are in good quality.
We are Learners
The Emerging Entrepreneurs tested out their businesses at the Twilight market. They had their first real taste of dealing with customers, placing orders and selling their wares. Some come away with a tidy profit, showing their potential to be successful future business owners. Year 9 Iron Chef students will be producing lunch for the staff on Friday 23rd. The budding culinary experts will go through the learning process of designing a menu, ordering quantities and cooking according to a schedule to get everything out on time. We wish them luck!
We are Safe
with the temperature warming up we are encouraging all 7-9 students to wear a hat.
Hats can be a navy bucket hats with the College logo or a plain navy baseball cap. Also a reminder to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Full Cycle, our Year 9 Pathway group, has started their bike servicing business offering including things like tyre repair, change breaks and services to the community at reasonable prices. By ensuring that you have a well maintained bike, you can travel safely wherever you go. For my details please contact Dom Zylka for details and rates.
We are Responsible
Journalism students attended the Big Issue on Friday to learn about how the social enterprise is supporting the marginalised Members of the community. The students learnt about the reasons why people become homeless and how we can best support Those who need it.
We are Respectful
The Living Landscapes pathways group has been working with the local nursing home to create a garden that the residents could enjoy. During that time our students got to know some of the people living there, learning about their lives and their wonderful personalities. A lot of our students come away feeling truly enlightened by the experience.
