Hopetoun P-12 College is a Child Safe School
During our Buddies session on Tuesday, all students participated in planting the new
shrubs and ground covers that were donated to the school by Parents Club.
Exams By the time you read this, the Year 12 exams will be over. There will be a collective sigh of re- lief by our students who have worked hard to prepare for and then sit the exams. It is not an easy task to learn all of the required information then prepare so that answers can be provided to what are often tricky questions. In general, questions are set to enable students to display their knowledge and insight as well as their critical and creative skills. Sometimes the trick is to interpret the words and intent behind the question and then provide the required information. However, I am sure that all of our students have done their very best. We can only await the results which will come through in December.
Now that the Year 12 exams are over, we turn our attention to the next round. The Year 11s (Unit 1 & 2) exams are scheduled to take place on Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th of November. These will be followed by the Year 9 and 10 exams which are scheduled for Thursday 6th and Friday 7th of December. It is an important time of the year for all students to be in attendance to show their skills and knowledge through formal testing which all adds towards their final as- sessment. We are also in the middle of On Demand testing and Progressive Achievement Tests throughout the school so it is an important time for full attendance. Remembrance Day We held a respectful Remembrance Day ceremony in the Glenore Theatre last Friday. It was a special commemoration as it is 100 years since the signing of the peace treaty to end World War I. The ceremony was led by our school captains, Shiarne and Kiana and a feature was the last post being played by a bugler. Yes, Mr Wright brought his bugle along and played the last post and reveille for the ceremony.
Camps and Activities Two exciting events are coming up shortly. Next week we have the ‘grand finale’ of the Buddies program. This promises to be an interesting afternoon run by the SRC and with our school chaplain, Helen. The session commences with a healthy lunch provided by the SRC, followed by an afternoon of team work centred around some fun games. I believe a change of clothes might be the order of the day. The underlying message is promotion and enactment of core values – respect, responsibility and teamwork. Then the very next day, the Year 5 and 6 student head off to Sovereign Hill. They travel to Bal- larat early Wednesday morning, engage in a series of interesting activities then return Friday evening. It promises to be a wonderful opportunity to not only enjoy a camping experience but to meet up and make friends with students from other schools in our cluster.
Prep Transition Day The first formal prep transition day was held on Monday. A keen group of young ‘kinder kids’ spent a few hours at Hopetoun P-12 College. They listened to a story about the hungry cater- pillar, did some finger painting, visited the library and had a school tour. They will be back again next week to continue the transition program.
School Council We held our November Council meeting last night. Main business included approval of the
draft cash budget for 2019, planning for 2019 and discussions around the teaching of lan-
guages. Our next meeting will be on December the 12th where the Annual Implementation Plan
for 2019 will be tabled.
