Term 3 was a fantastic term.

George Massouris - Saturday, September 23, 2017

 

That was an incredible term that had some fantastic highlights. Our school values of PRICE were evident throughout the ter. I remain in awe of students and staff alike who have given of their best in a range of situations to achieve personal and community growth, resulting in our school culture forever improving.

I have worked closely with our student leaders in a variety of forums. The students in SRC, MultiPride, Teach the Teacher and our form captains have all contributed to discussions aimed at building their leadership capacity and strengthening the outcomes of students. Student leadership is certainly going from strength to strength at the College. We have raised money for charity and supported the local food truck that delivers food to the needy in the local area.

Our Year 9 students spent many hours in the city capturing the data for their term 4 projects that they will present to their parents. They visted some Melbourne landmarks and interviewed a wide range of people to complete these assignments.

There have  been many extracurricular events  throughout the term  that  have  been  great showcases of  the  enthusiasm and  commitment of  our students and staff. The School Production Ned Kelly was a great delight to see. We also had five students represent the college at the State School Spectacular which was held at the Hisense arena. The performers were all outstanding appearing on stage at the highest level. Our college band has started its tour of local schools performing a brilliant concert at Cranbourne Primary School.

Term three has been demanding for our year 12 students. They enter the final stage of their schooling with us as they come closer to the exam period in term four.  We encourage Year 12 students to work as hard as they can in the coming weeks leading into exams.

We recently received the 2017 NAPLAN results. This data will be carefully considered and analysed to determine where further improvements can be made with respect to student outcomes in Numeracy and Literacy.  Parents were recently sent the individual results by mail.  The college is embarking on a major restructure of curriculum over the next few years. Our year 7 program is going very well and the students are benefiting greatly from the focus on skill building.

There were many more highlights throughout the term involving sport teams and high achieving students in many fields.

I wish you a safe holiday period.  I am hoping the students and staff get some much needed rest.  I look forward to working with you again in term four.

2017 State School Spectacular showcases our very best

George Massouris - Sunday, September 17, 2017


It was a great privilege to attend the Victorian State Schools Spectacular. More than 200 schools showcased how “Anything is Possible” at the event which was held at Hisense Arena. I was lucky enough to watch both performances. 

The shows explored the  themes of creativity, freedom of expression and self-empowerment – taking inspiration from the song Pure Imagination (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) which was a stand out  feature in the show

Jesse Rose Woods, Rani Wightman and Bonnie Ramsay performed brilliantly in their expertly choreographed routines whilst Sene Smalley and Joseph Stewart entertained us with powerful vocal performances.

I bumped into a few of the students at the break and also some staff and parents.I could not resist the selfie. The students were excited to see a familiar face.This is a world class event and the students are a tremendous inspiration to us all in our community. Some of them have appeared here more than  once and performed with great confidence throughout.The show had some memorable sequences. I was impressed with  the Hey Ya sequence where the bride carried Sene our school Captain off at the end of their wedding scene.The show ended with a triumphant Your The Voice which had the whole cast and audience involved.

I'd like to congratulate the students on a marvelous achievement and performance. I would also like to thank the families and teachers who supported these students throughout. there will be some great stories to tell from this wonderful experience in the future.
