To all our families and school community
As the school year draws to a close and we start our planning for 2018, I wish to congratulate every student for their hard work and achievements throughout the year. Schools are places of learning but this learning is much more than the learning in the classroom. We learn from experiences that are shared and opportunities that we take on. We learn from our friends and others around us and we learn from our wonderful teachers and support staff. Thank you to all our staff who work to make Glenroy College the best school it can be. Thank you to our families who provide strong support for their children to attend the College for their education. We trust that we are meeting your expectations of us.
Unfortunately, at this time of year we sadly say goodbye to some our Glenroy College staff. Firstly, to Mr Paul Dingle, I wish you a very happy and healthy retirement after years of service to state education. Paul will officially retire in February 2018. Johanna Simmons will be leaving us for a few years while she works with the Department to assist schools to implement the Language and Literacy for Learning training across the Region. We hope she returns to us at the end of her secondment but we wish her all the very best in her new career direction. Natalie Moore moves on to Wallan Primary School after an adventure as second in charge of a sailing vessel around the North of Australia. Kasandra Rzasowski finished her teaching contract with us last week and we thank her for stepping in to cover the numeracy and PE classes from early on in the year. Sue Flavel is transferring to Wallan Primary School in a school admin support role. Thank you to Sue, for all of your years and dedication to Glenroy College. Michael Bretag is also planning to move to another school for a year. We wish all our staff the very best in their new directions. We also thank Asha Sebastian, Peter O’Toole and Alison Ramadge who have been our College Chaplains and we welcome aboard our 2018 Chaplain-Amy Kirkbright. We also welcome Sonia Poetrodjojo and Hannah Woods from Teach For Australia and we are working to employ more teachers over the break to cover all our needs.
Over the break, there will be lots of building and works to be done, with the construction of a new Food Technology area in T block and the relocation of all other areas out of D block.
The General office will be open on Wednesday 24 January which is also the day for collection of book orders from Campion.
All families will soon receive a letter from the College with important information about reports which are now available on XUNO. Families who can’t print or can’t access XUNO should contact the office for assistance.
Enjoy the break, celebrate your child’s 2017 successes and we look forward to working together in 2018.
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.
JB HiFi is our current provider for BYOD providing Lenovo 11e and 11e Yoga as recommended preferred devices. Purchasing through JB HiFi means that laptops are provided with a Warranty and Accidental Damage Protection (ADP). This means that for a small fee, laptops can be repaired under warranty. JB HiFi can also offer finance options to allow parents to make periodic payments if needed.
