What a fantastic start to the year we are having in years 3-6. Your children have started this year settled and ready to learn. Their efforts are to be commended.
I’d like to take this opportunity thank our 3-6 community for your support during the recent snap lockdown. It was not ideal to have this at the beginning of the year; however, everyone has bounced back into action and transition well back into school life.
Our students are commencing the Resilience Project learning, we still have a number of students who do not have access to the Resilience Learning journal due to payment. This cost was included in our schools fees this year, if you did not purchase your child’s book pack through our provider, or have not paid school fees via COMPASS, can you please call our amazing admin team to discuss. We are happy to support families with payment for this, and would like as many students as possible to have a journal.
Our 5/6 students are buzzing about the creation of their Caine’s Arcade games. Through their explore unit they are learning about Caine’s Arcade, investigating what makes a good game, how to hook players into games. Students are beginning to work in collaborative groups to create their own arcade game. They most certainly are engaged with their learning and the hands on approach their teachers are using to deliver this learning.
Our 3/4 students have a similar buzz with their explore topic. Students are exploring their identity, whilst also learning that there may be others who are like them and some who are not, however we all co-exist in a peaceful community, a place for all to belong. The unit is aimed at developing our students send of pride in their families, peers and community.
Congratulations to our Swimmers. Well done to all the students who challenged themselves to trial for our school swimming team. This week our representatives headed back out to the pool and gave it their best shot to compete in our district swimming championship. They did themselves and the school proud.
This year we are adding a small group of year 5/6 performers to our year 3/4 concert. Miss Cachia and her team have run auditions and those students who took the risk and put themselves out there are to be commended for their efforts. We cannot wait to see the show come together at the end of the semester.
Well done to our year 5/6 students and teachers who have been giving up their lunch times to try out for summer sport. It has been fantastic to see so many students wanting the chance to represent out college on district sport days. Go Point Cook Jets!

Lastly, a reminder that it is a hat term, please ensure that your children are bringing hats to school, whilst we are in between uniform providers it doesn’t have to be a college hat. A hat in any of the school colours is fine.
Have a great long weekend, stay safe and enjoy your travels if you are heading away.
