Welcome to Trafalgar High School
From the Principals Desk
Volume 27, 18th September
With the recent announcements by the Victorian Education Minister Mr James Merlino regarding Victoria as the Education State, it has been a pleasure to see additional funds are being directed towards public schools. Additional funding of $745mil has been provided over 4 years with $556mil being equity money for schools. Each school will receive additional funding based on school family occupations and education and is to be targeted towards improved educational outcomes for students. Trafalgar High School will benefit from this funding and use it to provide additional programming for our students.
Our “City Survival” staff and students arrived back this afternoon from a very successful year 9 camp. This camp is an invaluable experience for many students who haven’t had the opportunity to independently navigate their way around the Melbourne CBD. I was fortunate enough to spend a day and an evening with them participating in a visit to Melbourne Star and Ice Skating and Melbourne Ice House. I'm sure there will be a full report and many photos in next terms first newsletter. Congratulations to the staff who have given their time freely to give this opportunity to the students.
I’d like to thank and farewell Ms. Shannen Wickremasinge who has been replacing Ms. Asha Lal whilst on leave teaching Indonesian to our junior students. She has most certainly made her mark on the experiences of Indonesian language for a range of year 7 and 8 students and I wish her well in her new school next term.
I hope you all enjoy your September school holiday break and have a safe holiday break until next term.
