Welcome Back to Term 3!

Dear Parents/ Carers
Welcome back to Term 3! Our new hoodies (which we are trialling) and school jackets have arrived. They can be purchased from the school accounts office for $55. They received a positive reception on assembly on the last day of term and we are hoping that they will be a smart and warm addition to the school uniform. Your support in ensuring that your child attends school in correct uniform is appreciated. Doing so promotes a sense of belonging for students and builds the culture of respect in our community.
A separate note will go out regarding parent/ teacher night, next Tuesday 30 July from 4.00pm – 7.00pm. Strong communication between school and home underpins students’ engagement at school and so we hope to see a good roll up of parents and carers.
Daily attendance is also another crucial factor in ensuring that students achieve their potential at school. Kindly telephone the school, send a note or submit via school stream if your child is absent due to illness etc. Otherwise, we hope all students will commit to a strong record of attendance in the coming term.
A few dates for you to note:
Year 10 into 11 subject selection night, Thursday 29 August 6.00pm in Hall.
Prefect Induction Ceremony, Tuesday 24 September 10.00am in Hall.
Year 12 Farewell Assembly, Thursday 26 September 9.00am in Hall.
Year 12 Formal Dinner, Thursday 26 September 6.30pm in Hall.
Finally, my thanks to all staff and students and in particular My Ashby, Mrs Stanton and Mr Ayoub who ensured that Term 2 closed on a wonderful note with our fabulous NAIDOC celebration. It was a great day!
Looking forward to a productive Term 3.
Yours sincerely

Ms M Doolan
