Principal's Message - Westport Campus - 30 August 2019

It’s SASS week!
We have had another marvellous week at Westport Campus where we have celebrated the great work of our SASS (School Administration and Support Staff) office staff, as well as our vital Learning Support Team who support our students every day.
The SASS staff play an important role in our school community, which ranges from answering the phones, caring for ill students and in general, helping in the smooth everyday running of the school. Quiet often they are the community’s first point of contact and are always willing to help others.

Child Psychologist Dr Michael Carr-Gregg Presentation
It was truly a special treat to have Dr Michael Carr-Gregg present to all students and parents earlier in the week. There were many important messages delivered. One of the most heart-warming aspects was his desire to meet & speak with the students personally. Dr Carr-Gregg thoroughly enjoyed the catering of our Hospitality students at both Campuses. One of his key messages was making our children more independent and taking more responsibility for themselves. The key to this is for parents to hold back from doing the tasks that they know their child is capable of doing or working out for themselves.

 Rotary Club Public Speaking Competition
A big congratulation to Phoenix Nincsics in Year 11 who recently won the Rotary Club's Annual Public Speaking Competition. Phoenix will now represent the College at the next round where he will go up against the Rotary Clusters in the 9650 area.

Father’s Day Events
The Robotics and Industrial Technology Timber class were incredibly popular at last night’s Bunnings Father’s Day event. All admired the exceptional quality of the work by our students and staff.

 And finally, a big thanks must go to our P&C who ran a very successful Father’s Day stall during lunch time on Thursday. We appreciate their ongoing support of our students in so many ways.
