“I do not like green eggs and ham, I do not like them, Sam, I am!" What a magnificent performance I had the privilege of viewing. Thank you so much to all the students involved, the teachers and the volunteers who supported the program and special mention to the whole school community for the amazing support you demonstrated giving our students a wonderful experience with an audience. Well done everyone, super proud moment for the school’s history books!
From dancing and singing to enjoying the great outdoors. Our year 3 students enjoyed an amazing camping program, attending the Werribee Open Range Zoo during day 1, sleeping over at the College and then participating in an outdoor program on day 2. Unfortunately the weather wasn't kind to us, however, the students thoroughly enjoyed their camp. There were lots of tired eyes Wednesday afternoon, ready for an early night's sleep. Huge thank you to the students for their wonderful behaviour, the year 3 teachers, the teachers who volunteered and assisted with the sleep over, Mr. Johns, Mr. Brennan, Miss Allen and Mrs. Kip for their leadership of the camp.
It was such a pleasure visiting classrooms on our Media Day, I loved seeing all the purple and yellow outfits that the students wore, it demonstrated their support for the Alannah and Madeline Foundation. It gave me a real buzz watching cross age groups share their media work with each other. The students enjoy sharing their achievements and learning about what other students had completed. Well done to Sally Hill, Ryan Wendt, Ali Ryan and their team for their organisation of the event.
Congratulations to the year 1/2 team, Miss Caras and Miss Perry for their organisation of the iMax and Melbourne Museum excursion. I heard lots of amazing stories about the excursion. Students thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the history of Melbourne. It was reported to me that our students represented the College well and all followed our expected behaviours.
Congratulations to our students who represented our College at the Division Athletics on Wednesday. The students competed at a high standard and thoroughly enjoyed competing at a high level. Thanks to Mr. Brennan and Miss Peters for assisting the students on the day.
Huge thank you to Mrs. Durbridge and her team of helpers for organising Indigenous Literacy Day. It was fantastic to see so many donated books and students enjoyed browsing the range prior to making their gold coin donation purchase. It is a great initiative.
R U Okay? Day, on Thursday the whole school participated in activities led by our student leaders in and around the theme of R U Okay? Mental Health is something that we should all take very seriously and looking after our mental health is vitally important. Thanks to Mrs. Fincher, Mrs. Gigas and the student leaders for leading this wonderful initiative in the College.
Wow, what a fortnight! Throughout the fortnight it was wonderful to see so many students engaged in their learning. I am thoroughly enjoying visiting classrooms and learning about each year levels foci for the term. It has been wonderful sharing in the students learning, credit goes to both our students and our teachers for their amazing dedication to learning. Well done everyone.
It is almost the end of the term, please remember to stay safe over the holidays, I hope that families get the opportunity to spend some time together, and the sun begins to shine. I look forward to seeing all the students smiling faces on day 1 of term 4, ready to finish off their school learning for the year.
