Principal's Message (23 June, 2023)
Congratulations on completing Semester 1! There has been a significant amount of work right up until the moment of dismissal. On Tuesday, I visited the Careers Expo, which was attended by several of our senior students. It is wonderful to have such opportunities available, as many students in other regional communities must travel significant distances to attend such events. It is great to see students consider pathways and options that they may never have considered or find some direction on the way forward.
On Wednesday, we were an election site for the Young Mayors, electing the Horsham Youth Council. It was great to see the election take place, in a very similar format that many adults in our community would be familiar with. This process had the support of the Victorian Electoral Commission.
It has been wonderful to see the musical team preparing for Alice in Wonderland. A reminder that tickets are available to purchase on the Horsham Town Hall website, and our students will really appreciate the support of everyone who attends.
We pray for all the students, staff and volunteers who attended the trip to Central Australia. As they return home, I trust they would have an opportunity to also rest after what has been a big trip.
Yesterday afternoon, you will have received your child’s Semester 1 report. As you read your child’s report, I hope you can identify points of celebration and growth, as well as areas for improvement and growth. An important attribute for a successful learner is being reflective, and this is an opportune time to do so. I would encourage you to have a conversation with your child about this as they prepare for Term 3.
As we move into the term break, I pray that all members of our community are able to have an opportunity to be refreshed, along with quality time pursuing activities of enjoyment.
May God bless you and your family.
Mr James Phillips, Principal
