Glenroy College in the News
Glenroy College’s Tariq brothers have been showcased on ABC news! As hundreds of thousands of students across Australia find out their year 12 results this week, the Tariq brothers are receiving theirs too — all three of them at the same time. Umer, Ali and Danial are not triplets, and none of them are twins either. But the brothers aged 17, 19 and 20 have all completed high school this year after migrating from Pakistan just two years ago.

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.

We ask that you ensure your child has a laptop to bring to school at the commencement of term one. We are very pleased that Learning With Technologies (LWT) will offer a payment plan to Glenroy College families so they can make a great start to their learning in 2019.
