Recently, you would know that we have had a range of excursions/incursions occur, providing many opportunities for our students. In many cases, these have been the first excursions since 2019/COVID and we commend staff in organising and leading these. Most recently, we have had Sovereign Hill, Holocaust Museum, Soccer Incursion, and a variety of sports being played at outside venues.
We would like to thank our students and parents/carers for prompt payments etc and thank all our staff for leading, organising and attending, ensuring we provide our students with these opportunities and experiences, where we can.
Reporting Process and Term 2 Online Parent/Carer/Student/Teacher Interviews
Teachers have been assessing student learning achievements and writing student reports, celebrating student learning growth throughout Semester One.
End of Semester Reports will be shared with parents via Compass Friday, June 17 (Week 8).
We encourage all our parents and carers to please open and read your child/rens’s reports with your child/ren, prior to attending our Term 2 Online Parent/Carer/Student/Teacher Interviews.
Our college will be having our Online Parent/Carer/Student/Teacher Interviews on:
The purpose of these interviews is for parents/carers and students to speak with teachers on the progress of their child/ren. Parents and carers have the opportunity to ask questions and hear the positive work your child/ren have been completing, as well as improvement areas. Please encourage your child/ren to be present at the interviews to promote conversation, inclusion, relationships and partnerships.
Please go onto your child’s dashboard, click ‘Book Parent Student Teacher Conference’, click on ‘My Bookings’ and please follow the instructions required to book.
If you have any difficulties booking, please do not hesitate to contact the PPC Help desk
Winter and Sickness
As the cooler weather approaches, illness seems to be more prevalent. To help keep our students, college and community safe, please take the following steps if your child has any cold or influenza or Covid like symptoms:
The Challenge is open to all Victorian children from birth to Year 10 in recognition of the importance of reading for literacy development. It is not a competition; but a personal challenge for children to read a set number of books by 2 September. On this date, the Premiers' Reading Challenge ends and the Challenge application closes.
Children are encouraged to read or ‘experience’ 30 books with their parents/carers and teachers.. All children who meet the Challenge will receive a certificate of achievement signed by the Victorian Premier.
For more information, please visit the website at https://www.vic.gov.au/premiers-reading-challenge#for-schools
Safe Driving and Parking around Schools
This is a reminder to all Point Cook College community members about the importance of road safety. We remind you about the importance of road safety and observing road rules. Please drive safely, and exercise tolerance and patience.
If you are able to commute by walking, or parking further away from the College and then walking to school, this may alleviate some of the traffic congestion.
Disability car parking around the College is reserved solely for drivers who have a valid parking permit. We ask that families respect the disability car parking and only park in these spots if you hold a valid permit and it is necessary as these are limited at PCC.
We ask children that ride their bikes or scooters to school to 'walk' their bikes around the perimeter of the College and wear their helmets to ensure that all children and adults are safe and that no one is hurt. We ask all parents and carers to have a conversation with their child/ren about the importance of safety.
We thank you in anticipation around all community members working together to ensure our collective safety and wellbeing.

Preps at the Zoo!
Our Preps went on their VERY FIRST SCHOOL EXCURSION to the Zoo!! We don’t think their smiles could have been any bigger.
Thank you to our parent helpers who joined us for the day and made it even more special.
Heroes of the Holocaust
Today, our Year 9 Heroes of the Holocaust class attended the Melbourne Holocaust Museum. Students analysed artefacts from the Holocaust and got to participate in a Q&A with Holocaust survivor, Abram Goldberg. Hearing from Abe gave students some insight to the experiences of Jewish people during World War II.
5/6 Daintree shivered their way to Sovereign Hill on Tuesday, 5/6 Kakadu rugged up for their trip on Wednesday and 5/6 You Yangs waited in anticipation for their turn on Friday (today)! Our 5/6 students had a fantastic time exploring life on the goldfields - they got to pan for gold and sat through a gold smelting demonstration.
