Glenroy Lions Youth of The Year Winners

On Thursday the 27th of February, four students from Glenroy College entered in the inaugural Glenroy Lions Youth of the Year Quest. Maryam Al-Sayednour, Nadia Dabdoub, Ruby Tupua & Lara Porczak from Glenroy College all participated in the competition which involved an application, an interview and a public speaking component with prepared and impromptu speeches in front of an audience of over 100 people. Pascoe Vale Girls College and Hume Anglican Grammar students also took part. Ruby Tupua was the winner of the Public Speaking, Lara Porczak was the overall winner and Glenroy College was the winning school. We are all extremely proud of all of our students and their involvement; they represented the school wonderfully and spoke with confidence and charisma. We also wish Lara Porczak all the best as she prepares for the next round on March 20th.

UPDATE: Lara won the next round of the Lions Youth of the Year, and then on March 29th she headed to St Arnaud for the Region Finals. She did an amazing job and delivered an excellent speech, but didn't win. However, she definitely represented Glenroy College so well and we all very proud of her. Well done Lara.

Parent Portal

7B Parents have the exciting task of trialing our Parent Portal for second semester of 2014. Parents will be able to log in from home or on their mobile device to check their child's attendance, download school reports, check overdue work and assessment results, message teachers and view timetables. 7B teachers are starting to upload work to the portal to enable students to check work from home, even if they are absent. The trial for 7B families will conclude at the end of this year and we will discuss its value and decide whether to proceed with more classes in 2015. If you are a 7B parent who has been unable to make it to a meeting, we will mail out your login credentials and you can view our introductory presentation on YouTube here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKG3DzLKILM&feature=youtu.be

Community Feedback

It is always pleasing to obtain positive feedback from members of the community. Here is an email we received on September 5:

"Dear Glenroy staff and students,
Yesterday morning I caught the train from Ascot Vale to the city along with a group of Glenroy students and their teachers. I'm writing to tell you how impressed I was with the students and the lovely rapport they had with their teachers. I liked that the students were polite (and ready to give up a seat though that wasn't necessary), but more than that I was really impressed with their natural friendly behaviour with each other and the passengers around them.
I hope they all had a great day in the city.
Regards,
Jane Pearson"

Thanks for the great feedback Jane.
