The coffee mornings this week have been well attended and have been a wonderful opportunity to meet and talk about a range of important issues and strengthen relationships between home and school.
Thank you to all parents who were able to attend and I hope you also found them useful and enjoyable. This year, we hope to hold a number of different events and welcome you to our Secondary Campus. In fact, I am delighted to be able to invite you to our first Parent Workshop which will be held on Friday 9th October at 8:15am. The theme of the workshop is Growth Mindset and Visible Learning. Further information will be provided next week and we hope you are able to attend.
On Tuesday we held our first Wider Learning Day which was postponed due to the haze. Fortunately, we were able to safely hold all the activities planned for outdoors, albeit not with blue skies, and the students had a range of wonderful experiences designed to build and strengthen relationships, develop communication skills and teamwork together with critical thinking and problem solving skills. We have had some great feedback from staff, parents and importantly students, who very much enjoyed the day.
Sports fixtures are already well underway and ECAs also started this week. We will of course continue to monitor the situation with the haze and make appropriate decisions to limit outdoor activities when necessary. We will also keep you informed with any potential worsening of the air quality and possible impact on school.
Next week we are very much looking forward to our Careers Day which is being held on Tuesday. This is specifically for Year 11 students but I would also like to thank parents who are participating in the event to share their experience - providing such a rich opportunity to learn would not be possible without your support. Year 11 will continue growing their knowledge and awareness of future careers over the next week with individual meetings and developing profiles with experts in this field.
Have a lovely weekend,
Principal Secondary Campus
