Term 2 Update
Term 2 is now well underway and students should be ensuring they are completing their work and maximising their learning opportunities. It is also a time when students need to be vigilant in submitting assessment tasks in a timely manner and also continually referring to their Compass to remain up to date with their coursework. Parents can also support students by regularly viewing their child’s Compass to check and monitor student progress.

Upcoming Year 10 Exams
The Semester One Year 10 exams will commence on Tuesday 11th June and conclude on Friday 14th June. There will be no timetabled classes on for Year 10 students during the exam period. Students are only required to attend their timetabled exams. These exams will soon appear on individual student timetables, which can be viewed via Compass. Students will be told what equipment they will need by their teachers. If any student requires ‘Special Provision’ for any reading, writing and/or extra time, please collect a form from the Middle School Office. These forms are due back to Mr Vlahos no later than Friday 24th of May.

The focus of InterGREAT this term is ‘Self in the Community’. Throughout the term students have been gaining an appreciation of the importance of Community. In their major assignment students are in the process of interviewing someone from their community who makes a difference and are creating a documentary film about them.
As we progress through the term, it is now time for our Year 9 students to make a difference in their local community. The Community Engagement program has seen InterGREAT staff establish a range of partnerships with groups and organisations in the Maroondah area. Students will be involved in visiting disability services, schools, aged care homes, municipal venues and recreational areas where they may volunteer their time and services and thus contribute in a positive way to their community.
I’m looking forward to sharing these experiences with our school community in coming weeks!
