Fire Danger Day Procedures

Due to the College’s unique location in a richly forested area, it is important that parents be familiar with the precautions we take on days of total fire ban and in the event of a bushfire in the area.

Our main perceived threats are an emergency situation on-site (e.g. fire on the property) or a bushfire in the area.

Update: Semester 1 Progress Reports and Progress Meetings

*Please note changes to original advice highlighted in red

Progress Reports provide a detailed overview of a student’s level of achievement and work practices in each of their subjects in Semester 1.  Year 9 students do not receive a full report in the middle of the year but a Progress Statement at the end of each seven-week rotation and a full Progress Report at the end of the year.

Drop Everything and Read

Year 7 students are being challenged to ‘Drop Everything And Read’ (DEAR) for at least 10 minutes each day throughout Term 3, as part of the Wide Reading program.

The competition will be fierce for the class and student who read the most with prizes and incentives on offer.

Traffic Management

Traffic Management and Safety around the College is a priority – for drivers, pedestrians and local residents.

For travelling to and from school, all drivers are asked to:

Travel with utmost care – observe 40 kmh zoning
Enter Bayview Road from the South end, not the Belgrave end, during peak times
Avoid double parking
Use the drop-off zone on Bayview Road, school side ONLY
Obey all parking signs – Council Parking Officers are often in the area

Thank you for your cooperation.
