Welcome to Week 4 and how great it feels to be back on campus! There has been so much energy and enthusiasm from our students this week. You can see both on the playground and in the classroom, how excited our students are to be back and reconnecting with their friends, teachers and classmates. 

A reminder that all students are expected to wear their uniform with pride and have the appropriate hair style. Please refer to page 25 in the College Diary if you are unsure of the College’s hair policy and expectations. It is important to continue to have high expectations and standards as we finish off the College year. If you have an issue booking a hair appointment, a letter needs to be sent to your son’s classroom teacher. 

Final Fun Friday — Cardboard Creations

Congratulations to the following students who finished our last Fun Friday activity with a bang! I have been blown away by the time and effort our students have put into this and the creative and innovative spirit applied to all projects. I have learnt a lot about many of our students through these activities and realised we have some true artists in our hands. Well done to the following students:

  • Finn McIvor – 5 Blue 
  • Hamish Patient – 5 Blue
  • Jasper Lumsden – 5 Orange 
  • Cooper Hawkins – 5 Red
  • Max Lee – 5 White
  • Tom Maxwell  – 6 Blue
  • Henry Furlong – 6 Orange 
  • Ashton Briffa – 6 Red
  • Chase Tanner – 6 White

Home Learning Club Weeks 5, 6 and 7

Home Learning will begin in Week 5. Please make note of the slight changes to the afternoon sessions before you book your son in.

  • Monday and Thursday afternoons are dedicated to the Year 5 students.
  • Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons are dedicated to the Year 6 students.

These measures have been put in place to minimise the mixing of grades while on campus. The afternoon sessions also provide a quiet, supervised study space for students who want to complete their assigned tasks.

Hours of Operation

Home Learning Club operates in the Learning Hub from 3pm until 4pm.

Procedures

>>> Click here to register your son.

Only register his name once, to allow other students the opportunity to attend. The session is limited to 20 spots. There will be a roll call to ensure attendance. Students are required to stay for the full session unless there is a message in the student diary requesting early leave, a parent signature will be required.

Behaviour

As it is important to respect the rights of others to learn and work, all students are expected to settle to work in the Learning Hub and not cause a disturbance for others.

Teachers

  • Tuesday and Wednesday — Mrs Natasha Zivanovic
  • Monday and Thursday — Mr Matt Ryan

If you require any further information, feel free to contact me.
