From the Principal's Desk
On a personal note I would like to say how pleased I am to be back at school. After nearly a term and a half of absence I have really enjoyed being able to move around the school grounds, visit classes and catch up with students. I would like to take the opportunity to thank Mr John Freyne in his role as acting principal during this time for the excellent work he achieved.
I would like to thank the students and their families who attended the VCE information Evening on Tuesday night. The process we undertake at Trafalgar High School is a collaborative one where a joint partnership between the students, their parents and staff ensures there are well informed decisions made that are based on students strengths, abilities and possible future outcomes. Course Counsellors are well subscribed with appointments for next Tuesdays Course Counselling Day. Just a reminder that Year 10 students only have to attend for their allotted course counselling time, there are no classes running for them on this day. This enables us to have a very personalised approach.
Next Friday, is the second of our scheduled Pupil Free Day’s for the year. Once again staff will be working together to further develop their approaches in teaching & learning based around the curriculum of their respective key learning domains. Having a day does mean that in depth work can be undertaken in a sustained way.
Once again I would like to thank you for your support when we have scheduled pupil free days. As an early notification, out third and final Pupil Free Day will be on the Monday before the Cup Day holiday, this means students will have a four day weekend.
On Tuesday morning I was very fortunate to be in attendance at the Synergy Student Leadership breakfast forum, hosted by Trafalgar High School. Student leaders from all local High school and Secondary College’s attended to share their reflection on their leadership roles and how they might use skills and capabilities learnt beyond school. Speaking with my Principal colleagues, we all iterated the same sentiments around the thoughtful insightful comments and qualities displayed by each of these young leaders and they will be fine representatives of their cohorts.
