Remembrance Day 

On this day, the eleventh day of the eleventh month at the eleventh hour 2022, our Middle School Campus community gathered to observe a minute of silence for Remembrance Day. Please find here the message shared by our student leaders for this occasion.  

“We would like to recognise the First Custodians of the lands on which we gather this day; where we live, work and learn. We would like to acknowledge the Wadawurrung people of the Kulin nation as the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which our community is being built. We give thanks to our Almighty Creator God for the care and stewardship of this land; and we choose to pay our respect to the Indigenous elders, past, present and emerging, and to any Indigenous peoples present within our community today.  We also pray for the ongoing healing of damaged relationships between our Indigenous brothers and sisters and all non-Indigenous Australians, as we seek God’s work of reconciliation in and through all our relationships.

            Helping Those Less Fortunate

            This week our Year 8 Community Service class went to Outpost, a local Geelong charity, to give to those in need. Outpost is a place for people who do not have a home and it offers free meals, clothes and more importantly for many, just someone to talk to. We spent a lunchtime making 200 cookies for Outpost to give to their clients. We got the opportunity to look behind the scenes on how the meals are made and we are grateful that we got to do this today. Outpost is a great and thoughtful organisation, and we look up to the people who give their time to help less fortunate people. There are many ways in which we can help Outpost and we hope to be able to do this in our own time in the future.

                      House Cross-Country

                      Hello Middle School Community!  

                      Week 7 brings us to our final House Carnival of 2022, House Cross Country.  

                      This event will be conducted on the Middle School campus and during the school day. This year the day will be combined with project care to raise some money and awareness for Lifeline Geelong. 

                      Parents/Guardians are welcome to come and encourage their young person in the event! There will be an area set aside at the front of the school, so we ask that any spectators enter via the Burdekin Road main gates.  

                      Students who are unable to participate on the day must attend school as it is a normal school day. If your young person has an injury or illness, please contact their Homeroom teacher to advise them of this.

                        Broadcast From Camp Australia OSHC

                        Enhanced Digital Safeguarding on College Devices 

                        Members of our community will be aware from recent College communications, including our Wellbeing Evenings held late last term, that as a College we are moving to a more proactive and preventative approach to supporting each student’s digital wellbeing. This includes enhanced student safety, particularly on College laptops, wherever they may be used. Those who missed this information can access it online here. 
                        Transitioning to Improved Digital Safeguarding on College Devices 
                        We will be transitioning to improved digital safeguarding over the next week. Individual student devices may transition at any time over this period, and students may notice some changes once the process has completed on their device. 
                        Once this process is completed, our base-level safety filtering will be always active on all College laptops, and school-time filtering will be active on any network on school days during school hours.

                        Canteen not Open on Last day of Term 

                        Please note that on the last day of Term 4, Friday December 9, the canteen will not be open. 

                        Thank you to all volunteers for your fantastic help during the course of this term, and throughout 2022.  

                        Recycling Uniform Items 

                        As part of the transition to our new College wardrobe it was important that we consider the environmental impact of clothing items no longer required. Whilst it is still possible for students to wear items from the traditional uniform, when items are no longer able to be worn, they can be recycled. 

                        Any such items can be dropped off and placed in recycling bins at each campus. We are working with our wardrobe manufacturer to ensure that these can be recycled as part of the introduction of our new wardrobe over the next 18 months. 

                        A MYTERN Thought for This Week 

                        Change is probably the most constant thing in our lives, so be prepared to suddenly switch roads. Embrace it with excitement rather than failure. 

                        New road...new journey.... new you! 😊
