Principal’s Desk – 26 March 2020

March 26th, 2020

 

Despite the uncertainty around us all, our final week of term ended on a high. After lots of planning beforehand, teachers were delighted with the positive feedback from so many students and their parents following our first day of online lessons.

Home schooling is like a trip around Australia

March 26th, 2020

With thanks to Kate Fogarty, Principal Assumption College, Kilmore.

 

Maybe think of home-schooling in isolation like a big trip around Australia…

We all know families who pack up the van & take off to circumnavigate the country, right?? Six months later they reappear, their kids go back to school and reintegrate into their learning and the schooling routines without too much drama.

Term 1 Reports and Progress Meetings

Revised arrangments for Term 1 Progress Meetings - UPDATED 23 MARCH

Progress Meetings scheduled for Thursday 26 March will be conducted by phone. Teachers will be available between 2.00 and 6.00pm. There will be no Progress Meetings on 14 April.

Parents are asked to email the teachers they wish to speak with, indicating a preferred 1-hour block of availability, eg

Please call me (0432 986 543) between 3 - 4pm on 26 March to discuss the progress of XXXX in Maths 

Teachers will endeavour to meet all requests with a 10-minute discussion, but this is an untried system.

Mixing it up

“Choose the subjects you want to do, rather than the subjects you
think you should.”

College Co-Captain Alannah believes that the key to success in secondary school is to follow your passions. 

Alannah followed her own advice, choosing a broad mix of subjects for VCE including Maths Methods, Specialist Maths, Literature, Legal Studies, History of Revolutions and a university extension in History and Philosophy of Science.

Coronavirus – A SchoolTV Resource

Coronavirus is an evolving international health concern. Around the world, people are being affected in many ways. Individuals of all ages from numerous nationalities are being diagnosed with the virus –– it doesn’t discriminate. Although children are considered at lower risk of infection, they are not immune to the multitude of news reports regularly seen or heard in the media.

A quiet achiever

Teachers have invariably described Zoe as focused, organised and diligent. Beneath her quiet and gentle manner is an inquisitive, thoughtful and reflective learner, ready to ask the difficult question or to help other students. 

Zoe was a self-motivated student with a genuine desire to understand problems whether they be within the logic of Mathematics or the philosophical challenges of Ethics.

Principal’s Desk – 5 March 2020

Here we are, already into the second half of first term, with students engaged in a myriad of learning experiences.

Year 12 Welcome Night

On 6 February, Year 12s engaged in our last school Welcome Night.

We came together to attend a beautiful Liturgy with the purpose of highlighting our 2020 College theme 'Shine your light for others'. We had time to reflect on how we, individually and as a cohort, will shine our light to lead others.
