I cannot believe we are in Year 10 already!
As students use this year to prepare for senior schooling, please encourage them to maintain a regular revision and study program at home.
I look forward to continuing to work with you in monitoring your child's online reputation. Please be vigilant about appropriate use of Facebook accounts etc.
I would also love to hear about the great things our students are doing out in the community through sporting and civic achievements. Many of the quiet achievers are reluctant to share their successes. Please let me know about these things so I can acknowledge those students who often go "under the radar".
Looking forward to a great year,
