Time certainly is flying, we are almost at the end of the year.
If you are aware that your children will not be attending Point Cook College in 2019 can you please notify the reception as soon as possible.
We are Learners
What an amazing performance our year 2 and 4 students put on for our community on Tuesday evening. It was such an amazing show, I thoroughly enjoyed watching the students.
Thank you to our parents and community for your support. Our amazing performing arts team, thanks again for yet another sensational production.
Congratulations to the students, you were outstanding, I know that you have learned many skills that you can apply to many other activities that you will encounter throughout life.
We are Respectful
I strongly remind all students to remember our 4 expected behaviours. We understand that it is a busy time of the year and that students have lots of end of year celebrations. It is during these times when students find it difficult to manage their own emotions, teaching our children to use breathing techniques can assist them during stressful times, particularly during conflict. Smiling Minds is a fantastic application that has multiple breathing exercises that may help students during this time.
We are Responsible
As we transfer into the new year, it has been fantastic to see our students engaging responsibly in the process. As a part of 2019 preparation, our students will participate in transition sessions on Tuesday the 11th and Thursday 13th of December. At this time students will also find out their homeroom location for 2019.
We are Safe
Over the course of the year, we have had multiple false fire alarms. These alarms, unfortunately, are being pressed by our students and have a significant cost to our College and the resources of the community. We take an educative approach at the College to give our students an understanding as to why and when these buttons should be pushed. I urge all parents to have discussions with their children around why we should or should not be pressing these buttons.
