Week 1 Term 1 2020

Posted by Fiona Davidson

Welcome back to a new Term in a new School year. We hope that students are settling in quickly.

An especially warm welcome to all of our new families.

The WELCOME FEAST is happening on Thursday 5 March at 5.30pm, which all of our College families are invited to. RSVPs are essential. Booking information will be emailed to families next week.

We welcome our new staff members, Mrs Annalise Edwards who is teaching Year 6 and Secondary Art, Mrs Andrea Lonsdale, Laboratory Technician and Miss Nateeka White, Education Assistant in Kindy.

Communication Changes

We will be using this Blog to share news with College families in 2020, rather than producing The Link each fortnight. This will help us to share good news stories more frequently. We will send an email to let you know when the blog has been updated.

Please take the time to familiarise yourself with the College website, particularly the Parents Section. Here you will find the College Calendar, Canteen Information, Sentral Parent Portal (which allows you to be able to view your child’s profile and keep up to date with attendance, notices, calendar entries, submit absence notifications, book secondary meet the teacher appointments, etc), Uniform, and lots more.

Important Dates

Please take the time to check the College Calendar freqently, either on the website or in the Sentral Parent Portal.

Here are a few things coming up that you might like to put in your calendars for Term 1:
