After community consultation last year, the College Council agreed to adopt a minimum dress standard. The new College Polo Shirts are now widely worn across the college and two shirts were made available to each student for purchase via the "back-to-school voucher" program. While this is not a compulsory item of clothing, it is the minimum standard of dress required. The expectation is that students dress in a manner that would be appropriate in a work place. Students wearing singlets or "spaghetti straps", cropped tops, or t-shirts with inappropriate graphics or slogans may be asked to either change into a College shirt or return home to change.
Occupational Health and Safety requirements dictate the need for certain items of clothing to be worn for particular activities. For example closed-in shoes must be worn in Science laboratories, kitchens, workshops and for Physical Education practical classes.
Dear parents & community members,
All students & families are reminded that students can access additional support beyond the classroom teacher during mentoring time or at the after school Study Centre, operating every Monday to Thursday 3-5pm in Room 136. Afternoon tea and an in town bus ride home is provided.
The end of the school year is rapidly coming with Year 12 exams well underway and all students completing final assessment tasks. All the best to our Year 12 students as they complete their secondary schooling.
Year 10 & 11 parents & students are asked to discuss the mid Term 4 Work Completion reports, mailed home on Friday 3 November & make contact with Teachers and Mentors should assistance be required to identify any class works yet to be completed.
Looking forward to catching up with you all at the Year 12 Formal & Presentation & Year 12 Awards Evening.
