It seems that the year is racing to a close, with Year 10 and 11 exams now completed! This week our Year 11 students will be participating in Year 12 orientation classes for 2015. Many students will be et tasks which need to be completed over the January holidays and I encourage parents to discuss what needs to be done with their child as soon as possible. It is best to avoid the last minute panic and if all the preparation is completed before classes commence in late January, students find the transition into the next level of school much smoother. If your son or daughter misses any of the orientation classes this week, it is imperative that they contact the relevant teacher to get any holiday homework. The following week Year 10 students will be participating in their orientation program and the same advice applies.
Friday December 5th is the Year 12 Graduation Dinner. Could I please ask all students and families who haven't yet replied, to do so as soon as possible so we can make the final arrangements regarding catering. I am looking forward to a wonderful evening which will celebrate and commemorate thirteen years of schooling for these young adults.
Last Wednesday was the second of our Year 7 Steps Days, and once again students were introduced to some of the subjects that they will be undertaking in 2015. We look forward to welcoming them all back again on Tuesday December 9 and we ask that students bring their completed enrolment forms on that day so their details can be entered into our system. If you have any questions or difficulties regarding the form, please contact the college.
The Year 8s enjoyed a three day camp to Ocean Grove last week and I would like to thank Mr Lyndon Kuhne, Ms Tahlia Williams and Mr Steve Glover for accompanying the students. By all reports it was a wonderful camp. This week many of our Year 10s also head towards the coast with a three day camp based in Geelong. Much of this camp has been organised by Year 12 Senior VCAL student Sara Hunter who has done an excellent job coordinating the venture. Mrs Sue Kuhnell, Mr Lachie Watts and Ms Moira Nunn will be with the Yr 10s.
