From the Head of Middle School (Issue 17 2017)
Written on the 9 November 2017
Next Friday (17 November) we will celebrate our last ever Mass in the Chapel at the Middle School - a place that holds many special memories for students, staff and our community of Marist brothers, especially as it was their Chapel when they lived in at the Mitchell Park Campus.
If you have a special connection with the Chapel and would like to celebrate the Mass with us, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the front Office on 8276 7877 and we can add you to the list. Much of the original stone work featured in the Chapel will be used in the new Champagnat Campus, which will help to keep the memories and traditions alive of the humble beginnings of the campus.
As per the Principal's article, just a reminder that the last day for all students this year will be Thursday 7 December. This will allow staff time to move and set up in new spaces as demolition and removal work will begin the following Monday. Please mark this in your calendar.
Reports will be distributed for students in Years 6, 7 and 8 at normal dismissal time (3.15 pm) on that Thursday.
Year 9 students will receive their reports that evening at their Rite of Passage/Graduation Ceremony to be held in the Br McAteer Centre at the Senior School. Details of this event will be communicated to families soon.
Thursday 7 December will also be when we hold our End of Year Mass (10am in the gym) and our final Academic Assembly (11.30am in the gym). The final assembly will also acknowledge the students in each year level who have won significant awards (parents/caregivers of these students will be contacted prior)
It is a very busy time in the life of our school as we approach the end of the year. I would encourage you to have genuine conversations with your son about his final assessment tasks to ensure well-earned academic results in his last formal report of the year.
Enjoy the spring weather!
