News from our Acting Principal, Catherine McMahon
It has been a pleasure to be Acting Principal in Term 1. I wish to thank all staff for the very important work they have done over the term, ensuring students are settled and working hard on their learning. I have enjoyed meeting and speaking with many students over the term. Students love Glenroy College and have suggestions about how to improve the school. The Student Leaders in 2017 are an active group and bring student voice to decisions about what is important to the College.
I have met many parents and guardians through the term, talking with them about the school and how they can support their children over the year. The parent teacher interview night was a great success with a large number of parents and guardians speaking with subject teachers about student academic progress. Students now have a good idea of their learning goals for term 2. I encourage parents to contact the school if they would like to speak to teachers about their child’s progress.
Please make sure you have your correct email address and contact details at the school. This helps us to communicate with you about your child and important events at the school including progress reports, available on XUNO.
The school council elections were conducted in March. Thank you to all those parents, staff and community members who took part in the election. I can now announce the successful members for 2017.
