Student Diary Usage

Please continue checking in with your child's diary each week to ensure you are aware of the homework and assessment schedules that have been set.

 

Caregivers are asked to sign the student diary once a week to confirm that all parties are aware of student responsibilities for this time period.

 

If you are unsure of the requirements of the school diary, please make contact with your child's Pastoral teacher.

'Courage to Care' Excursion

All Secondary Students attended the 'Courage to Care' Exhibition  at the Bank Art Museum Moree this week. 

This exhibition aims to highlight the importance of standing up to bullying, racism and discrimination and any forms of prejudice. It promotes understanding and acceptance of all people in our multicultural society. It tells stories of the remarkable rescuers of Jews during the Holocaust to empower visitors to the exhibition to be upstanders rather than passive bystanders.

Courage to Care is designed for school students with curriculum links in the following areas:

Civics and Citizenship, Health and Physical Education and History.

The program consisted of:

  • a guided tour of the exhibition
  • a Holocaust survivor’s first hand, positive testimony
  • a facilitated workshop.
