Principal’s address

Mr Green will join other principals as part of a review panel visiting schools for the next few weeks. Ms Monagle will be acting Principal and Ms Ryman will be acting Deputy for Barang in his absence.
 
There may be students and staff in the audience who are victims or witnesses to violence.  This school needs to be a sanctuary, or a safe haven where you don’t live in fear or feel unsafe. We need to be a non-violent school.

Swimming Carnival Age Champions

The students who came 2nd and 3rd received medallions and students who are the Age Champion for their age division received a trophy. Congratulations to these students.

Assembly - 2nd March

Assembly Leaders: Year Level Prefects, Noah and Jessica

Acknowledgment of Country: Haylee Langton

Principal’s address

Ms Monagle gave clear expectations regarding two of our school values, Participation and Relationships.

Participation is about

  • being at school,
  • being in class,
  • being prepared to complete the work expected,
  • following reasonable instructions given by teachers,
  • getting involved in the class activities.

With reporting for end of Term 1 quickly approaching, all students should be striving to receive Excellent (EX) or Very Good (VG) for effort and behaviour, a goal Mr Green talks about often on Assembly. EX and VG for behaviour and effort are achievable by all. Ms Monagle asked: Are you on track to achieve EX and VG for effort and behaviour.

Relationships – relationships with our school friends and teachers are important. We need to be good at relationship building and not making choices and acting in ways that negatively affect relationships. What can you change in your actions to better match the school’s expectations around relationships?

Bystanders can make a difference and we need those who are watching the harm being done to step up and make a difference. No one deserves to be hurt or harmed. We all have the right to be safe – at school, on phone, on social media networks. Ms Monagle introduced Stymie, an anonymous notification system, and encouraged students to use if they see others being hurt or harmed. https://stymie.com.au/

Year 12 Project – Cancer Research

Caspian and Tom spoke about the Grade 12 Project to raise funds for cancer research as part of Jake Simpson’s bucket list. Jake Simpson, a friend of Ms Hollman, recently lost his battle with cancer and Ms Hollman is still working towards his goal to raise $10000 by participating in World’s Greatest Shave.  The Seniors and staff donated $338 towards her fundraising efforts.  There is a Trivia night on the 18th March at Earth Café and more information can be found at http://mjbucketlist.com/
