A big thank you and well done to everyone – staff, students and parents - for the way the final term for 2019 is progressing. I have been most impressed by:
There really is a positive feel about the place and I encourage us all to maintain this great atmosphere. When we all contribute positively it makes such a difference!
Staffing for 2020 is coming together well. We are shaping an exciting team of new staff to join us next year following news of several staff departures. Further news on those coming and going will be made available via my end-of-year letter distributed at the same time as the Semester Reports. Please continue to pray for our Year 12 students as they continue their VCE examinations this week. I am sure they will appreciate it.
One of the more significant events on College calendar is the Annual Awards Ceremony, to be held this year on Monday 18 November, 9:15-11:15am. This is our one whole school opportunity to recognize the achievements of our community – students past & present, staff and parents. The Annual Awards Ceremony will take place at Lakeside Stadium and will feature a showcase of performing and visual arts. I encourage as many parents as possible to attend; it once again promises to be a most entertaining event.
The College Uniform is very smart when worn well. However, teachers are quite frustrated when some students repeatedly elect to not wear items correctly (eg. the Blazer is a compulsory outer garment to/from school all year round). As reported earlier this semester, some students have received official Uniform Warnings for continued breaches of our Uniform Guidelines. These are being sent home for students who have had (3) or more infringement notices reported to House Leaders and have still not corrected the issue. Students issued with a Uniform Warning are required to address the concern immediately. Students presenting to school out-of-uniform after the issuing of the warning are being sent home (suspended) until such time as the issue is addressed. It is our sincere hope that the issuing of such warnings in the future will be rare or unnecessary. Your support of our Uniform Policy is appreciated.
Salesian College Sunbury is a large community of students, staff and parents, both past and present. Please keep the following in your prayers:
