Principal’s Report – 20th March
DMSC School Council AGM
Last night, we held the 2018 Annual General Meeting for School Council. We farewelled two outgoing members, Mrs Mandy Withers, after four years of service and Mr Charles Rees, after three years of service. We thank Charles and Mandy for their commitment to DMSC over the past few years. It was exciting to welcome some new members to the council, parent representative, Kellie Laverty, DET (teacher) representative, Mrs Charlotte Pyers and two new student representatives, Amy Zippel and Kaylee Withers. Mrs Rhonda Huf joins as the coopted RSL representative. Mr Neil Zippel, Mrs Teresa Smith, Mr Tony Schneider and Mrs Sally Klinge, all renewed their terms. We have a committed and diverse group on school council and I am looking forward to another positive year. The new executive were elected:
President: Mrs Lisa Polycarpou
Vice President: Mrs Lynley Robinson
Treasurer: Mrs Sally Klinge
The 2017 Annual Report to the school community was also tabled for discussion and ratification and once that document has been signed off by the Department of Education and Training, it will be available to read by all members of the public. Please see the masthead of the newsletter for all members of the School Council.
Year 11 Outdoor Ed Camp
This morning, our Year 11 Outdoor Education students set off on camp. They will be joining students from Murtoa College and Birchip P-12 School for this four day camp to the Otway Ranges and surf coast. Mr Jake Anders will be accompanying them. Hopefully the weather is fine so they can enjoy the many features of this beautiful area of Victoria.
Year Seven and Year Eight Camps
Tomorrow, our students in Years Seven and Eight head off on their respective camps. Year Sevens to Campaspe Downs in central Victoria and the Year Eights to Ocean Grove. The following teachers will be accompanying the students on camp:

We are sure that they will have a wonderful time and we look forward to seeing their photos and hearing their stories when they return.
