From the Head of Middle School (Issue 18 2016)

Written on the 24 November 2016

Staffing Updates
We have now finalised our staffing for 2017. I would like to welcome to the Middle School Margret (Lucy) Pickering who will be teaching in Year 6 next year. Lucy comes to us highly recommended from St Barbara's in Roxby Downs. I am confident she will make a great contribution to the team. This position has become available as Deb Rischin is taking up a new position at the Senior School and Sonja Brownridge will take over as the Marcellin Resource Centre's Teacher/Librarian (Sonja will also be supporting our Learning Enrichment Team). Sam Rossi will also join us in a more official capacity as he has accepted the position vacated by Vincent Williams (leave for 2017) as Year 7 Maths, Science and Physical Education teacher. Again, I am confident that Sam will make a great contribution to the students in his care.

Middle School Events
Last week the Middle School's annual 'Band Sandwich' was held and again, was a huge success. I would sincerely like to thank all those involved in the planning and organisation of the evening. It is great to be able to celebrate the talents of the boys in a relaxed community centred environment.

This week we also will be holding our New Parent Evening and Orientation Day. Both events mark significant beginnings for our boys. For some students and their families it is the beginning of their Sacred Heart journey and naturally, a nervous time. Like all partnerships, effective communication is the key to success and I would encourage you to be active in this area, especially with the key stakeholders in your son's education. Our staff are here to support you and your son during this important and exciting time.

The portal for purchasing a chromebook for new students is now open and can be reached at http://portal.lwt.com.au/shc. Please note that the Middle School is not a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) school. All Chromebooks purchased from this website/portal will be delivered and distributed via the school. We are not a BYOD school for many reasons including issues relating to warranties, repairs, our networking configuration, equality, and so on.

If you need to purchase a new device at any time, please do so via the portal by clicking on the yellow 'Middle School' button. All chromebook orders need to be placed and paid for by Friday 16 December 2016.
