Principals Update

- Sarah Rose, Principal

I would firstly like to thank families for their support with the Focus Weeks we've run this term.  As outlined in the previous edition of our newsletter, we have had a different focus area each week, including mobile phone and headphone use, equipment (being prepared for class), correct and appropriate uniform and respecting school environment.  I appreciate that parents and carers have taken the time to discuss this initiative at home, thereby working in partnership with the school and contributing to a positive learning environment for all.


Our 2024 Student Leaders attended the Secondary Youth Leadership Conference at the Melbourne Convention Centre last week and what an experience they had, and as this edition goes to print today, we have another contingent of student leaders attending the Macedon Ranges Youth Summit in Woodend.  It's really wonderful seeing our students immersing themselves in these opportunities. 

Progress continues with our Capital Works Program.  After the excitement of seeing the slab being poured, we've now watched the steel framing be delivered and craned into position.  Additionally, over the term break another component of the program will be undertaken, with the basketball towers on the outside courts being replaced.  These are heavily used by students all year round so I'm sure this improvement to the courts will be welcomed by many.

Early in Term 2 we will be hosting an Information Session for Prospective Families aimed at current Grade 5 students, but others are also welcome to attend.  If you know any families with primary school aged children who might be interested in this event, please pass on the below details to them and the link to register attendance, 


A reminder that we have Parent/Teacher Interviews scheduled on Wednesday 27th March which makes this a student free day in lieu of the interviews.  If you are wanting to meet with your child/ren's teacher/s please book an appointment before the system closes at 3pm on Tuesday 26th March.


Finally, tomorrow we say goodbye to Tracey our wonderful school crossing supervisor. While not a direct employee of the school, Tracey is considered an integral part of our school community.  Every day for the past 14 years she has ensured that our students get safely across the road, morning and afternoon, and that the flow of traffic is managed such that all the buses get out in a timely and streamlined manner.  She always greets everyone to the school with a smile and a wave and will be very much missed by students and staff.  If you get the opportunity today or tomorrow, please stop to wish Tracey well.


Kind Regards,


Sarah Rose
