Getting to know Year 8 students
Year 8 has begun well this year with many compliments crossing my desk from all teachers of Year 8. These include "what a lovely year level," "I just love my year 8 class," "I can't wait for Year 8 camp this year."
The way that students have made the transition from Year 7 to Year 8 has been fantastic. Students appear happy, engaged and well connected to the school. I would like to thank all the teachers that ran 'getting to know you' games in initial classes to help build strong relationships within the Year 8 classrooms.
Upcoming Important Year 8 Camp Information
The Year 8 Camp will be held at The Summit in Trafalgar (in Gippsland) from the 9th to the 11th May, In Week 4 Term 2. Any parent who knows that their son or daughter WILL NOT be attending, must let Mr Bond know immediately, to assist with planning for final numbers.
An event will appear on the Compass Parent Portal towards the end of Term 1, and consent/payment will be due no later than the end of Week 1 Term 2.

The Summit has the most exciting, inspiring and unique activities and programs in Victoria. Year 8 Camp will be fantastic.
