the front office, this is also the process for picking up for early departure. Any student who remains at school after 3.30pm and not picked up will be taken to the front office.

It was my honour last week to announce our Student Leaders for 2023 to our school community at our first assembly. With over 60 students nominating at the end of 2022 for leadership positions and staff working through the process of narrowing it down, we have finally reached a decision of who our student leaders will be in 2023. A massive thank you to all students who nominated and presented to staff. We are proud of the high calibre of applicants which made the panels job extremely hard. Our staff look forward to working with these students across the year.


Please be reminded that students need to be wearing their school hat during all recess and lunch breaks in Terms 1 and 4. It has been great seeing students in correct school uniform to start 2023. Please be reminded that students need to have all black shoes as part of our uniform policy. Any issues, please speak to your child ’ s teacher or come in and speak with me at school.

Congratulations to the following students:

2023 School Captains – Neha P, Kiara T, Ashwin B, Harry S


2023 House Captains –

Speed zones, pedestrian crossings and parking restrictions around school are there to improve the movement of traffic during peak times and maximise safety for children and road users. It is vital that as adults, we lead by example and set good road safety practices travelling to and from school. As such we are asking all parents and carers to observe and obey parking signs. Our kiss and drop zone before school is not for parents to get out of their car and walk their child into school but is used for a quick drop off in the morning. Thank you for your cooperation to keep everyone safe during this busy time. Whittlesea City Council have asked us to remind our school community that it is an offence to:

Jackson – Yvonne Y, Alexia P Evans – Milly D, Olivia V

Rafter – Noah M - T, Ethan Z

Beachley – Tijana M, Milly R

2023 Peer Mediators – Tessa B, Imogen J, Hiya D, Jahmin S, Saanvi C, Tri Thanh L, Miriam M, Maddison B, Taylah G

HAVE INPUT INTO OUR SCHOOL … SCHOOL COUNCIL NOMINATIONS OPEN SOON We know that one of our school ’ s key strengths is our strong parent input and involvement.
