Campus News

I hope that the time away from classes has been an opportunity for our students to get some well-earned rest and to spend some time on examination preparation.    

Revision sessions have been running online throughout the holidays and were planned to cater for individual students’ needs to revise and have some time away from screens.   

For our Year 12 students, the last few days of school are often filled with mixed emotions. The feelings of excitement at beginning life away from school have to be contained by a strong commitment to finishing the year well and preparing for examinations. 

All staff have only positive things to say about the way our Year 12s have persevered during the past two years. They have earned the admiration of all who have worked with them. 

My best wishes to you all and sincere thanks for your support during these challenging times.

Duke of Edinburgh 

Congratulations to Tiffany Smith (Year 12, Keysborough) and Chiara Maiorino (Year 12, Berwick) who have completed the Gold Level of the Duke of Edinburgh’s (DoE) Award.

Tiffany and Chiara have been challenged in completing the award during the COVID-19 pandemic and they have progressively worked through each element. Completing the award is a big achievement for both of them. Tiffany was also our 2021 DoE Ambassador and has clearly led by example!
