         Dear Parents, Staff and Students This year we have been Loving Life Together and have enjoyed a most successful year for our College. The 2018 Year Book that students will take home this afternoon is filled with happy memories and many photos to remind us of the various events throughout the year. I always enjoy seeing the happy faces that reflect the fun had by students. I commend this Year Book as a must read publication for the upcoming holiday period.   Tuesday evening saw the final of our eight Celebration evenings and events completed. While this is a…

      Recently the College was fortunate to secure the services of Mr Cameron Adair. Mr Adair is a technology expert who has delivered seminar-type presentations across the globe to students and parents, about the potentially problematic domain of gaming.   With almost all teenagers playing video games regularly, 13% of them reporting symptoms of a problem, and the increasing popularity of competitive eSports, the time is now to ensure teenagers have a healthy and productive relationship with gaming and social media. Mr Adair has left the following resource images which will help you identify at-risk teenagers, and give practical strategies to…

         Dear Parents, Staff and Students   This week we have moved secondary students into their 2019 Year Levels and they have commenced work on next year’s courses. This is an important step in preparing students for the new assessment system commencing for Year 11 in 2019, but it also gives all students a head start on their studies for next year. Years 10 and 11 students moved on Monday and Years 7-9 moved today following their Celebration Evening on Tuesday night. While we do not expect students to be working during their summer break, it gives them the opportunity…

         Dear Parents, Staff and Students   The time has come for us to farewell another cohort of Year 12 students. Each year at this time we ask, how did this happen so quickly?   Last night the Celebration Evening for Years 10-12 was a lovely celebration of a most productive year. It was delightful to see so many students being recognised for their hard work throughout the year. However, while there were many students acknowledged in this way on stage, it is not possible to recognise the individual growth and development in each student in the same way. All…

      Hey 2018 school leavers! Congrats on your last few weeks of school life EVER!! We know you're keen to celebrate, but we have one last pre-schoolies task for you to complete - and it could save your life.

      It is with great joy that I write to inform you of the Junior Secondary Leaders for 2019. The selection process was a particularly daunting one, given the nature and quality of applicants. As with most experiences of this nature, there are always going to be those who were less successful than their peers. I deliberately avoid the term unsuccessful because in truth, every single applicant in this process, has experienced success of some kind. Whether this success manifests itself in the form of the ‘job interview’ like experience, the nerve-bending exercise of addressing an entire campus of peers or…

         Dear Parents, Staff and Students   Congratulations and thank you to all students and staff who supported the Cancer Council Relay for Life last weekend. Our College has hosted this event for many years now, and it is always well attended. Students raised over $9000, which is a fabulous effort. Well done everyone.     I spent the weekend in Daylesford in Victoria where I attended a school reunion: 50 years since we started High School. You may think that is an odd event to celebrate, but in 1968, around 100 of us started in Year 7 (Form 1…

      Chickenpox We have a few cases of Chickenpox reported within our College Community.  Chickenpox is an infection caused by the varicella virus. It cannot be treated with antibiotics. Treatment is usually to relieve the symptoms, which are commonly fever and a rash.  Chickenpox is easily spread by direct contact with a person who has chickenpox, or by fluid droplets in the air when they cough or sneeze. A person with chickenpox is infectious to others from one to two days before the rash first appears until the last blisters have dried up.  In rare cases, children can develop serious complications…

         Dear Parents, Staff and Students   It was very exciting to welcome the 2019 Preparatory and Year 7 students to the College on Monday morning for their Orientation Day. There are always a few nerves especially for those who are new to our College, but this is an important event, as it gives students the opportunity to meet others and find out a little about what to expect in 2019. Thank you to the teachers who made our guests so welcome this on Monday morning.   You will be well aware that Child protection is at the forefront of…
