Wishing all our families a happy and safe holiday, we hope that you get to spend quality time together.
Farewell to the students and families who are leaving us, we hope that your time at Point Cook College has been valuable.
We are Learners
What a fantastic week and a half we have had at the College enjoying Literacy Week. It has been wonderful to see so many of you engaging in literature. Reading is such an important part of learning and is a foundational skill that we all continue to build on throughout our lives.
It was fantastic to see pirates everywhere on International Talk Like a Pirate Day. What a wonderful positive climate it created across the College. Thank you to all who were able to support the day.
We are Respectful
Congratulations to our year 3 and 4 students who attended their camps over the last two weeks. All students demonstrated high levels of respect towards their teachers, helpers and camp staff.
The year 3 students participated in Surf Life Saving Victoria incursion at school last Thursday, and then sleep over before heading down to Anglesea surf beach the next morning. Students participated in a range of beach activity, majority of the students labelling body boarding their favourite!
The year 4 students went to Lady Northcote, located on the Werribee side of Bacchus Marsh. They enjoyed a range of outdoor education activities, including water safety and canoeing. They all had a fantastic time.
We are Responsible
Thank you to everyone who has demonstrated high levels of responsibility across the term. It has been fantastic to watch all students grow across the term and develop higher levels of responsibility. Students have been able to demonstrate this through a range of activities such as camps, excursions, kids teaching kids conference, premier’s reading challenging, out of uniform days, school musical, running assemblies, student leadership opportunities such as the eSmart leaders and many, many more.
We are Safe
I urge all our students to take safe risks over the holidays. Remember to think before you act, we want everyone to return to school happy and safe, ready to have a great term of learning.
