Welcome back to Term 4. I hope that all of our students and parents have enjoyed the fantastic weather that we experienced during the holidays and got out an enjoyed the beautiful sunshine.
We had a busy Term 3 and this term is going to be equally packed with activities and events for our students.
In two weeks’ time, we will farewell our Year 12 students as they finish classes and start to prepare for exams or head off onto their next journey. We wish them all the best and hope that they enjoy this special milestone in their educational journey and look forward to celebrating at their graduation night.
There are a number of incursions and excursions coming up in Junior School – our Prep students will be visiting Bundoora farm, our Year 1 students are heading off to see all the animals at Melbourne Zoo and the Year 2’s are looking forward to the sleepover at school next Friday.
Our Year 4 students and the student leadership team were busy in Term 3 designing a future Year 5 and 6 playground. It has been led by the Year 4 student leaders and combined ideas and input from the wider group of students. I look forward to seeing the final designs this term before looking to get this built and installed as soon as possible.
Year 6 students are looking forward to their camp at Lake Dewar near Werribee Gorge later this term and it promises to be an exciting camp as Mr. Vallance and Mr. Azcenzo are certainly busy getting ready to make it a great experience with plenty of adventure activities on offer.
On October 31st our Middle and Senior School students will have their postponed house athletics day. This is always a fun day for students to put on their house colours and either compete in the many athletics events or just cheer on their friends.
Year 9 students will be back in the City on excursions this term as well as the second and final focus camp of the year in November where they get to celebrate their year and develop further teamwork skills with their teachers and home groups.
Our Year 10 and 11 students will start to complete their current year of studies mid this term before their end of year exams and then the early start program where they spend two weeks stepping up into their subjects for next year.
On the 18th October we will be showcasing our VCE Art and Technology students work in the Performing Arts Centre and then on the 9th of November we will be showcasing students Arts and Technology work from Kinder, Junior, Middle and Senior School in our whole college Art and Technology showcase.
I look forward to seeing you at many of the events across this term and wish everyone an exciting time ahead.
