The Junior School students finished the term with a flourish.  Most notably the Junior School students participated in the Swimming Carnival on 5 March.  Students competed in a range of events throughout the day, with the stronger swimmers progressing through to a higher level of competition.  Throughout the day a range of other non-competitive activities were also available.  This included volleyball, pool volleyball and of course some time on the ever popular waterslides.  Luckily we had perfect weather for the whole day.  It was fantastic to see so many students engaged in competitive and non-competitive activities throughout the day.  The behaviour was impeccable, both at the pool and on the buses to and from the venue.  The pool surrounds were left in spotless condition.  It was a very successful day.

Our Year 7 students have been completing the NAPLAN tests during weeks 7 and 8.  These tests form a crucial benchmark for the assessment of our students and informs the strategies that are put in place to support them.

There are several exciting excursions coming up in week 3 of Term 2.  The Year 8 students will be going to IMAX and the Museum whilst the Year 7 are going to Melbourne Zoo.  Please look out for permission details on Compass over the coming weeks.

Term 1 Progress Reports were released on Compass during week 8 of term.  Please take the time to review the reports, together with your students. 

Thank you to all those parents, carers and guardians who attended the Parent, Teacher, Student Conferences on 27 March.  This is a vital opportunity to receive direct feedback on the progress of your students from their teachers.  It is also nice to be able to put faces to the names that you have been hearing all year.  Please look out for details of the Term 3 conferences.
