Semester One Reports and Progress Meetings

Progress Meetings play an integral role in the communication between home and school and provide an opportunity for students to reflect on their learning, seek input from parents and teachers, and set goals for the term to come. Students are encouraged to lead the discussion, with the support of their teachers, as we believe that they are more likely to grow if they take responsibility for their learning.

Principal’s Desk – 2 April 2019

Here we are, in the final week of this first term.  I suspect that we all, students, parents and staff, share an equal sense of wonder and achievement at this news.  Wonder that our time shared as community in educational pursuits has gone so quickly and achievement as a consequence of all that has been accomplished within such a short time – settling in for new students and leaders, getting underway in sporting events and production rehearsals and stepping through challenges such as in Zenith, Personal Project, Adventure Camp, VCE Outdoor Education and the Yarra Ranges Tech School.
