Congratulations to all of our teachers and students on a smooth commencement to 2018!

If you are new to the College, welcome. We hope that you have settled in well to Point Cook College and are enjoying being a part of our community. The College will be hosting a New Family Seminar on March 1st at 7pm in the Gymnasium, we hope that this will give you an in-depth understanding of how our College operates.

It has been with great pride that I have been visiting classrooms, enjoying joining in with the students learning. With this newsletter you will find Neighbourhood term outlines, these outlines share with you the major curriculum foci for each Neighbourhood for this term, including specialists. I strongly encourage everyone to take a look at these outlines.

This week Year 3/4 parents were sent via a COMPASS email the 3/4 2018 iPad App list. If you did not receive this list can you please see the general office to ensure that your email address is correct, so that you receive College correspondence.

Congratulations to our students who participated in the College swimming trials, well done on your efforts, from all reports students represented our College with exemplary behaviour.

Friendly reminder to all students that in P-6 you must wear a hat during terms 1 and 4. It is essential that students have a College Sun Smart hat and a bottle of water with them daily. Hydration in the heat often causes headaches and the inability to concentrate during learning time, so please ensure that all students have their College hat and a water bottle daily.

Over the past few weeks, I have received numerous amounts of feedback in relation to a multitude of things across the College. I thank each of the parents who have offered this feedback and hope that we can continue to develop a strong partnership moving forward. I would like to remind parents that we now have a parents and friends association, held at 2 pm every second Tuesday. PFA is a great way to be a part of the College Community, we strongly encourage parent involvement and would like to see as many parents as possible on the PFA, for further details please contact Rebecca Thornton at the College.
