Year 10 Formal

The Year 10 Formal is one of the highlights for the students. It is a chance for students to dress up, relax and have fun after their exams. The atmosphere inside the venue was fantastic and the students really enjoyed each other's company. Some of those shoes caused blisters but that did not stop them on the dance floor. The parents were proud of their child as they dropped them off and took a picture or two. The students attended in healthy numbers and were respectful of expectations and including others. Students and staff enjoyed a three-course dinner and danced the night away, celebrating the achievements of Semester One.


Once again the highlight was the staff performance. Not many would argue here. All the rehearsals and time invested by the Year 7 and 12 students have paid off as they performed for their house. Solomon did a great job to be nominated the winners. After a rough start they were able to maximise their on stage performance. Thanks to the Year 7 Year Level Leaders and House Leaders for their work directing, supporting and guiding the students. A special thanks to Nicole Magee, Trudi Camilleri Helen Simcic and Belinda Sorbello for their work to ensure another successful MMADD Day.

Extra-Curricular Activities

It always amazes me how many activities are run at lunchtimes. The LRC continues to provide students with a vast array of activities including: Photography Club, Chess Club, Maker Space, Tech Club, Jig Saws, opportunities to record themselves and then you will see students studying in the midst of all this. Then you venture outside and this week we have seen a Year 7 netball competition run by the senior students and many sports. The music and drama area has had soirees, practices, choir rehearsals and the musical continues to develop nicely. The student leaders (led ably by Ms Simic) continue to meet regularly and provide experiences for the whole school community. The faith team actively lead the Youth in Action Group and will lead the Winter Sleep Out in Week 1 Term 3, and is another example of students being exposed to social action.HolidaysThe holidays are a chance to have time out from their studies, have a sleep in and catch up with friends and family. We hope all the students have a great break and stay safe if travelling.


It is imperative that all students wear the uniform with pride and comply with all uniform expectations. We require all parents to work with us to ensure the uniform is worn as it has been designed. We appreciate you being onboard and supporting the work we are doing to keep the uniform up to a high standard.

Child Safety Team

We have formed a Child Safety Team that has already met this term. The team consists of students, staff and we have a parent representative. One of our first goals is to investigate our Child Safety Policy and develop a child friendly version. ComplianceCurrently staff are undertaking many different modules to ensure staff are prepared to tackle complex cases, medical scenarios and mandatory reporting.

Mental health problems can affect anyone in the community and inaccurate and stigmatising attitudes towards people with mental illness are common. Many people lack the knowledge, skills, and confidence to support a friend, family member or co-worker experiencing a mental health problem, including how to approach someone and start a safe conversation. Course suitable for volunteers, teachers, parents, carers and others.
