Junior School Report
Welcome back to Term 3. We hope our students are well rested and prepared for another busy term. All students should have received their reports by now. Students can access reports via COMPASS and parents can use their Portals to see the reports. If you are having difficulty with this please contact the school. If you have any concerns about your child’s report, please contact the relevant coordinator to discuss.
Our first week back hit the ground running with Year 7 Students attending an excursion to the city in Week 2 to the Bunjulika Aboriginal Cultural Centre at the Melbourne Museum. Students were able to interact with ancient artifacts, and explore the exhibits while comparing and contrasting historical sources and analysing different perspectives of people in the ancient past. The excursion included access to the Milarri Garden and enabled students to be immersed in the rich and diverse cultures of Australia’s First nation’s people. It was an amazing experience and a great day for the students.
Students from the Sub School are performing in the MAC School Production “Cinderella” – Year 7 students will have had the opportunity of a taster of the Performance in August. We are pleased to see so many keen junior performers with various talents participating in this big production.
Our Anti -Bullying program “Wired” was held in Week 3 for Year 7 and 8 students. This performance highlights the various types of Bullying and engages the students in how to respond to issues and how to seek support. This is a valuable program to support our students in dealing with ongoing issues they face with Cyber Bullying in particular. Students will complete follow up materials to support the Program in their Integrated Studies classes.
We will be holding an online Parent Information evening for Year 8 students on Tuesday 2 August and this will be to inform parents and students on Subject Selection processes for year 9 Courses. Information will be sent out via Compass.
Please ensure your child has warm uniform for these cold winter days. Ensure you have labelled your child’s clothing. The uniform shop is open Monday and Thursday 12.15- 1.30 pm.
If your child is absent, please submit a medical certificate upon return or contact the Sub School on 9366 2555 to inform us of the absence.
If you require any type of assistance or support, please contact your child’s coordinator via email or phone.
