MultiPride Jumpers have Arrived!

George Massouris - Sunday, April 23, 2017

Our students who join MultiPride and become regular contributors to the team are issued a  jumper. They  must  wear the  jumper
to signify that they are in MultiPride and they are approachable for help in the yard or in class.
They have many ideas about school improvement that you will be hearing about  during 2017. MultiPride meets weekly on a Friday.They are led by Ms. Annette Evans.

Our Students Shine at CMY Exhibition

George Massouris - Tuesday, April 18, 2017

On Saturday the 8th April I had the pleasure of attending the Journey to Self-exhibition in the city. Some of our senior students exhibited their ART and performances to this uplifting event.

We heard the experiences of youth from refugee backgrounds and witnessed some thought provoking art work. Young people can encounter significant barriers as they try to settle in Australia.

The event highlighted the young people’s challenges of growing up, figuring out how things are done and adjusting to unfamiliar cultural, academic and social expectations.

I was very proud of our students and all the young people in the room. My son accompanied me to the event and he asked me on the way home if he could join CMY.

End of Term 1

George Massouris - Saturday, April 01, 2017

First term 2017 has been an exciting time for teaching and learning at Cranbourne Secondary College. We welcomed a new  group of Year 7 students and introduced them to our  newly designed curriculum. They have  thoroughly enjoyed the  emphasis on deep learning.
Classrooms have been very productive as CATS, SACS and KLA assessments have been completed. There were some encouraging conversations about learning progress occurring at Student Parent Teachers conferences held last week, helping to further support learning.

I have been privileged to be  invited to a range of activities outside the classroom including Polyhood, MultiPride, Point Leo Surf Day, SRC Grip conference, Athletics carnival to name a few amazing highlights there has been plenty happening to keep students actively engaged both inside and outside the classroom.

I have been proud to be a part of the election of a new Student Leadership team and the introduction of form captains for every class 7-12.The MultiPride group has also shown great strength in  numbers and delivered a series of  student conversations during  lunch breaks.
I hope everyone enjoys some family time over the holidays and I encourage all senior students to ensure a balance between study and relaxation. Develop a study timetable and stick to it, it will be worth it. Have a safe and relaxing holiday.

It has been a great start to the year!
