Campus Principal's Report

This fortnight has provided many exciting educational opportunities for our students. Our Foundation students were very excited and learnt so much on their excursion to the Collingwood Children’s Farm and the Year 1 students were exceptional representatives of our college when they visited the Melbourne Museum.

On the sporting front, our congratulations go to our secondary students who represented our College in the Hobsons Bay Athletics carnival last Monday. We are also proud of the amazing Year 3/4 students who are currently participating in Gymnastics Australia clinics, and our Year 9 students who visited Whitten Oval for their My Body the Machine Sport elective.

We are looking forward to all of the science activities that will occur this week for Kids Teaching Kids, including a group of students participating in the Love Your Locals program at Werribee Zoo. This annual program continues to enjoy a high profile at our college, ably led by our coordinator John Forrester and his team from the Student Environment Council.

Our Defence Force students and our student leaders attended the Battle for Australia commemoration at The Shrine of Remembrance this week. This is always a special and moving event, demonstrating the respect and value our students have for our country and its rich history.

Our sensational P&F held another very successful Fathers and Carers Day stall. This army of parents regularly provide stalls with appropriate and affordable gifts for our students to purchase. Our sincere thanks for their sensational efforts.

The HERO program at our college has been a wonderful success with rates of absenteeism halving! Our focus on improved attendance and punctuality is based on research evidence telling us that punctual daily school attendance is important for young people to succeed in education and to ensure they don’t fall behind both socially and developmentally. Young people who regularly attend school and complete Year 12 or an equivalent qualification have better health outcomes, better employment outcomes, and higher incomes across their lives. Our commitment to the daily attendance of all students is supported by state government legislation with all schools keeping accurate and detailed attendance data. There are regulations, laws and outside agencies available to support select families.
