Director of Campus Report

The term rushes on and we are surviving some cold, wet weather! Despite this, the students at the Rosebud Campus have been involved in a number of activities. This week saw the second session of our Year 8 students coming together for their Positive Education Program, which took place at the Tyabb Campus. All the Year 8 students shared time together in discussion groups and in sport activities - it was a great occasion for the Year 8 students to meet their peers from the other campuses.

Some of our Year 7 and Year 8 students have volunteered to help with our Primary Schools Athletics Days. A group of Year 7 students were marshals and recorders at St Joseph’s Sorrento on Tuesday and some of our Year 8 students will be helping at Our Lady of Fatima Athletics Day on Friday. It is great that the students are eager to help in our Primary feeder schools. In the middle of all this the Rosebud Campus Athletics day was won by Anthony House - more on this in the  next issue of the Paduan.

Our Year 8 and 9 students have now begun the process of subject selection for Year 9 and Year 10 2020. The students have responded well to the amount of information that has been presented. It was good to see a large number of students taking advantage of the Information Evening and ECAT at the Mornington Campus. It is important that the selection sheets have been returned, signed to the homeroom teachers.

Still looking to the future, we are interviewing our new Year 7  2020 students on Thursday 22 August. This will be a student free/ home study day as all staff are involved in the interview process. This will be followed by a Professional Learning Day for staff on Friday 23 August.  So the students have a mid-term break.
