Our election day BBQ was a massive success with over $1,000 raised. This was not a scheduled PA activity and we were fortunate to have the opportunity given to us by Heathmont College. A massive thank you to the organisers and those parents and staff and students who were able to help out at such sort notice.
Maroondah Wellbeing Surveys
The Department of Education & Training and Maroondah City Council want to improve the wellbeing of young people and children in the Maroondah community. They are therefore working with The University of Melbourne to measure the wellbeing of students, parents/carers and school staff through the upcoming Maroondah Wellbeing Surveys. The results of these surveys will be used to help build the wellbeing of young people, children, and families in Maroondah.
All schools in the Maroondah Network have been offered this opportunity and our school has excitedly agreed to participate. These surveys are being offered to students from Grade 4 through to Year 12, as well as parents/carers and school staff, and will be delivered during May-June this year.
The surveys are voluntary so anyone can choose not to participate if they wish. Parents/carers also have the right to opt their child out of the survey, via an ‘Opt Out’ form that will be sent to them along with further information about the survey.
Additional information about the surveys will be provided directly to all students, parents/carers and staff. In the meantime, for further information please do not hesitate to contact Lisa Reiner or the research team at The University of Melbourne (either Isabelle Stevenson, the Project Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 03 9035 7542 or Dr Tan-Chyuan Chin, Director of the Wellbeing Profiler, at email@example.com or on 03 9035 8976).
A reminder to our community that tonight is our Open Night. The school is open from 6pm-7:30pm with a tour for prospective families. Our classrooms will be open with a focus on our Numeracy progam and it would be great to see as many families there are possible.
