College Triennial Review
The College is in a year of review. All schools go through this every 4 years. We use all our survey results, including Parent Opinion and the recent Student Attitudes to School survey as well as student results in all subjects and many other sources of information, to help us understand what we have achieved for the students over the past 4 years and what we can do better. There will be opportunities for parents, students and staff to be involved in giving feedback to the College and this will all be taken into account when we have our formal review in October this year.
If you would like to be involved or find out more, just contact us at the General Office.
Thank you to all our families who support the students to be in full College uniform every day. It is very much appreciated and certainly helps the students to feel a part of the College community.

Technology for Learning
Our core business is improving student learning outcomes. Our teachers plan and work together to develop curriculum using technology. As we move to more online and innovative educational programs it is very important that your child has the right tool for learning. We ask that you ensure your child has a Lenovo laptop to bring to school. We are very pleased that JB Hi Fi will offer a payment plan to Glenroy College families so they can make a great start to their learning in 2017.
