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,
Term 3 has come to a successful conclusion. Year 12 students are finalising assessment tasks and preparing for examinations. Please continue to support them as their secondary schooling concludes and they transition to life after school.
Term 3 Progress Reports for Year 10 & 11 students have been mailed home. Parents, please discuss these with your child / children and come along to the Years 10 & 11 Parent / Student / Teacher interviews 5:30 - 7:00pm on Tuesday 22 October (Week 2 Term 4), to discuss how these achievement grades can be improved even further.
At the end of this term we say farewell and great thanks to Science teacher Tash Colson, who after 15 years teaching in Alice Springs is relocating with family to Mildura.
To all students, staff and families have a restful, safe and happy break, recommencing classes on Monday 14 October to continue optimising learning for 2019.
