As part of our College’s partnership with Western Edge Youth Arts, Western Edge staff attend our school to conduct workshops for Year 10 students as they begin to study Shakespeare’s Othello. Over the week, students have the opportunity to participate in role plays and watch interesting and thought-provoking demonstrations of the scenes in the play. The workshops allow students to get out of their comfort zones and learn new skills, as well as develop an understanding of the complex play in a different light.
Parent teacher interviews will be held at each campus from 1.00pm to 4.30pm and 5.30pm to 7.00pm. Parents willl be advised when bookings open on the Compass parent portal.
We encourage all parents to make appointments to discuss their child’s progress with their teachers. Students are required to attend with their parents as there are no scheduled classes.
Families can login directly to Compass to retrieve their child’s reports and book interviews at https://vusc.vic.jdlf.com.au.
Please contact the College if you require any assistance.
We are pleased to welcome our sister school students and teachers from China for a week long visit to Melbourne. The Chinese visitors will stay with host families within our school community and enjoy sightseeing activities, a welcome reception at Government House and classes with our junior and senior students.
Our College is proud to host this year’s Model United Nations Conference.
The conference focus is ‘Zero Hunger: Addressing Global Poverty and Universal Food Security’.
A Model UN Conference is a simulation of the UN General Assembly during which delegates step into the shoes of ambassadors from around the world and discuss contentious global issues – with the aim being to find the best possible solution through dialogue, negotiation and multilateral diplomacy.
The program is aligned with the Victorian curriculum and provides valuable opportunities for students to develop public speaking, debating, creative and critical thinking and teamwork skills.
Our Year 9 students are greatly looking forward to attending the Summit Camp from Wednesday 1st – Friday 3rd August. In addition to developing leadership and teamwork with our students, the camp will no doubt create lifelong memories as a highlight of secondary school.
Students will leave at 9am on Wednesday and arrive back at the Junior Campus by 3pm on Friday.
The Summit is a 50 acre outdoor adventure park with a primary focus on providing inspiring and life changing experiences through a combination of meaningful programs and powerful activities that build self-worth, character, success and happiness.
