From the Head of Campus
On behalf of the staff and senior leadership of our Middle School Campus, can I offer a very warm return to Term 3 to our students and families. I trust you’ve had an enjoyable and refreshing break. I would also like to extend a special welcome to our new students and families that have joined our Christian College community this week. It has been wonderful to see the smiles and enjoyment on the faces of your young people as they’ve commenced their educational journey with us!
As communicated late last term, Semester 2 will see some staffing changes across our Middle School. We welcome Mrs Christie Waight and Mrs Kim McLure back from family leave, returning to part time positions across the ATD and HPE faculties. Mr Graham Barton, has stepped down from his Year 8 Coordinator position, being replaced by Mrs Renee Garing in an interim appointment, alongside her Year 7 leadership responsibilities for second semester. We anticipate appointing a new Year 8 coordinator for 2019. I would like to take this opportunity to recognise the wonderful leadership Mr Barton has offered our Campus and more broadly Christian College over the past 6 years. His ability to come alongside students and their families, maintaining structure and accountability in the difficult years of adolescent behaviour, whilst reflecting Love and Grace within his servant leadership has been remarkable and truly a blessing to many students, parents and staff. Thank you.
Semester 1 Summative Academic Reports:
You will have received an email earlier today, notifying you that the Semester 1 Summative Academic Reports have been delivered electronically and are now available for viewing through the Parent Portal, via the ‘Reports’ tab in SEQTA.
Save the Date:
Further to the Summative Reports referenced above, Parents and Guardians would have been receiving regular ‘in time’ reports regarding your child’s progress throughout Semester 1. On Thursday, 16th August there will be the opportunity to celebrate and further discuss your child’s development through our ‘Learning Conference’ evening, held in the Sports and Aquatic Centre. We value the partnership between the student, parent and teacher and therefore strongly encourage your child to attend the conferences on the evening with you. Further information and booking details will be communicated in the coming weeks.
Mr. Tony Costa
Head of Campus
