Junior School Report
The Junior Sub School has started 2023 with a flurry of activity. Most importantly we welcomed approximately 250 new Year 7 students to our school. Whilst many of the students were nervous about their new school, the vast majority have settled in quickly. We have been pleased to see students making new friends, meeting their teachers, working out how to use their locks and lockers and of course, finding their way around the school. In no time at all our students will look back on these nervous few days as just a distant memory.
An important date on our calendar is the Whole School Assembly, on 8 February. This event took place in the Covered Outdoor Learning Area (COLA) and each class of Year 7 students were welcomed with a round of applause. In addition, we were honoured to have Wurundjeri elder Aunty Julieanne Axford provide a Welcome to Country. Aunty Julieanne provided some history of the indigenous people of the land on which St Albans Secondary resides and the significance of providing a Welcome to Country.
Each Year 7 class will have the opportunity to attend a camp at Strathbogie during Semester 1. This camp is owned by our school and provides a great opportunity to cement new friendships as well as develop relationships with staff outside of the normal classroom environment. Please ensure that you stay alert to permission slips and Compass details about the camp and respond promptly.
