Thanks to our House Captains for running our House Assemblies last Friday and those of you from our community who attended.
Twilight Market is fast approaching and it would great to see many of you on the night. Your donations would also be greatly appreciated, please refer to Facebook posts about details.
A very big thank you to all the parents who attended our Parent Forums on Wednesday the 1st of November. As a leadership team, we found the sessions to be extremely valuable in informing the strategic direction of the College.
The last of our year 5/6 Camps were held this week. MAG Crimson made the most of the camp, even though the weather may not have been the best. Thanks to all the teachers who assisted with the camp. By all reports, the students demonstrated our expected behaviours and represented our College well.
P-2 Transition is well on the way and students are enjoying learning together through STEAM challenges. On Fridays, students in P-2 get together in mixed age groupings to collaboratively solve mini challenges. It gives students the opportunity to make new friends, learn how to work together and be creative. This year’s theme is Super Heroes.
In week 3 the Year 4 team visited Polly Woodside as a part of their integrated studies topic of history. From all reports our students represented our College well, upholding our expected behaviours at all times. We value parent support with excursions and incursion as these experiences give our students opportunities to make ‘real life' connections with their learning. If you need assistance in funding student's excursions please see your child's homeroom teacher.
A reminder that Monday the 6th of November is a student free day and Tuesday the 7th of November is the Melbourne Cup Public Holiday, students are not required to attend school on both days.
Tickets went on sale for the Year 2 and 4 concert (28th of November) this week. I’ve already purchased mine, I hope you have yours!
Safety! Unfortunately, there are people in our community who are not following the road rules during drop off and pick up times. A reminder that the bus stop on Tom Roberts parade is not a drop off zone, it is extremely dangerous not only for your children but, also for those around you to be using this space as a drop off zone. I also see on multiple occasions double parking, please ensure that safety, for all comes first.
