Melbourne Camp

Friday, 31 March 2017

Thanks to our dedicated staff for providing such a great experience for our Grade 6 children in Melbourne.  The success of our camping program relies on the willingness of our staff to leave their families and support such events.  This is something that I appreciate as a parent myself and as a Principal.  Special thanks to Mr Staley for coordinating this camp.


Harmony Day

Friday, 31 March 2017

I would like to thank the many parents and family members who came along and supported our Harmony Day activities on Tuesday.  I hope you enjoyed the day and value the important that we want to place on what this day means to all our students and the broader community.  Special thanks to Mrs Woodward for making this day a priority for our school and for being the driving force behind the scenes.


The Country Bus Program

Friday, 31 March 2017

The School Bus Program in Bendigo is currently unable to accept any bus changes for existing travellers on the country buses. This includes adhoc travel (casual travel on a different bus).


Applications are currently being accepted for new permanent travellers for term 2 (this includes students who have moved house or school of enrolment). Travel application forms may be accessed via your child’s school or here. Applications should be lodged with your child’s school.


Parents are encouraged to access the School Bus Program Policy and Procedures, January 2016, located here. Students residing within 1.6km of public transport are expected to utilise these services. Information on public transport services in Bendigo may be accessed by phoning Public Transport Victoria on 1800 800 007 or via PTV's Journey Planner


Capital Works Project

Friday, 31 March 2017

I noticed that many parents commented via the Parent Club survey that we have a need for greater levels of shade at our school.  Currently, as part of the potential capital works project, we are working with a landscape architect to maximise the redevelopment of some key outdoor spaces.  A number of shade structures will be included in these plans.  Fingers crossed that we receive funding for these exciting projects and they will become a reality.
