Middle School Report
Term 3 has been a very busy and productive time for Middle School students. Across weeks 4 and 5 of this term, both Year 9 and 10 students engaged in course counselling where students were given the opportunity to think about their futures. Students were supported by Middle School staff as they chose from a wide range of subjects from all key learning areas. Students were able to select subjects that not only interest them, but also subjects that will challenge them. The Middle School would like to thank the support and organisation that the Careers team provided throughout. We hope that all students are excited for their subjects in 2024!
On August 3, 33 Middle School students participated in the Australian Mathematics Competition. This competition aims to develop students problem-solving skills and to promote student engagement in maths. While we will have to wait until later in the year for the results of the competition, we would like to congratulate all of the students who participated and encourage more students to partake in next year’s competition.
Across three big nights, Year 9 and 10 students were involved in the school musical Cinderella: Time After Time. Shining both on-stage and behind the scenes, the students did an amazing job to bring the production to life. With overwhelmingly positive reviews, we congratulate all the students (and staff) associated with the musical.
From 28 August, the Year 9 cohort will engage in City Experience, a week dedicated to developing skills outside of the classroom. Students will explore the city, including the Shrine of Remembrance, the Melbourne Museum and Docklands, to not only learn more about Melbourne, but also to gain confidence in navigating the city. We hope all Year 9 students have a good time during City Experience.
As we enter the second half of term 3, all Middle School Coordinators are proud of the progress students have made and look forward to discussing their progress reports. It is a time to celebrate successes and look to set goals for the remainder of semester 2 and beyond.
