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,
Our 2019 school year has had a busy start. Thanks to all members of the College community for your support College at our well attended Meet the Mentor/Teacher Evening in Week 3 and of our recent Whole School Professional Development Day last week. Staff worked with visiting Senior Years Team curriculum officers and colleagues from other local schools to ensure their learning plans and associated assessment tasks supported students to optimise their engagement and achievement in Stage 2 / Year 12 courses. Professional learning from this day will flow through to Year 10 and Stage 1 courses.
Thanks also to parent support at our College Council AGM. Parents Tanya White, Lauren Winter and Tanya Becker were elected to Council, joining continuing members Liz Hay and Janette Gunner. Belinda Harding is the staff representative and Fred Richardson continues as Invited Member, with Student Representative Council members sharing the role of representing students at monthly Council meetings. The next meeting is Tuesday 30 April from 5:30pm in the conference room – parents are welcome to attend Council meetings.
