Middle School Report
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Over the last month, the Year 9 and 10 students have been involved in some exciting events here at school. In this edition of the newsletter, we will highlight some of these events, including the Scienceworks excursion, Community Partnerships Breakfast, the Year 9 Morrisby Profile work and our student-assisted assemblies.
The Scienceworks excursion was a fantastic opportunity for our students to engage in interactive and hands-on learning. Our students were able to explore the wonders of science and technology through various exhibits and activities. They were also able to apply what they had learned in the classroom to real-life situations, helping to bring their studies to life. We would like to thank our science faculty for the organisation of the event as well as the teachers that helped on the day.
We were also delighted to host our annual Community Partnerships Breakfast. The event was a great success, with many community leaders and local businesses joining us to discuss the importance of education and community engagement. Our Year 10 Peer Mentors were able to display some of their talents, including public speaking and engaging with members of the outside community. We would like to extend our gratitude to all those who attended and contributed to this meaningful event.
In term 2 the Student Representative Council (SRC) were given the opportunity to assist us in the running of year level assemblies. These assemblies provide an opportunity for students to showcase their creativity and leadership skills. From musical performances to speeches on important issues, our students have demonstrated their diverse talents and abilities. We are proud of our students’ hard work and dedication to creating a positive school culture. There will be further opportunities for students to participate in these assemblies as we progress through the year.
Finally, in the first few weeks of Term 2 our Year 9 students have been interviewed as a part of the Morrisby Career Program. Each student has now completed the program and has been provided a list of careers that would best suit them and their interests. With the support of our Careers Team, we will continue to work with the students on their long-term career goals as they change and refine over time.
We are thrilled to see the continued success of our students and the positive impact they are having on the broader school community. We are grateful for the ongoing support of our parents and guardians, and we look forward to future opportunities to work together to support our students. If you have any questions or feedback, please do not hesitate to reach out to us in the middle sub-school.
