Running a Small Business – Market Day
Over Term 3 and 4, Year 10 Running a Small Business students have prepared their formal business plans, including developing a business idea, writing partnership agreements, preparing a budgeted profit and loss report and creating effective advertising. On Wednesday, the students experienced the realities of being a small business owner. The partnerships traded over lunchtime and dealt with the many logistics involved with selling a high quality product, all whilst providing excellent customer service. The market had a fantastic atmosphere, plenty of customers and very little stock left over! Thank you to the many students and staff who supported us before, during and after the market.
Glenelg, Palindromes and Students’ reflections
Don’t change the glenelG!
It has been a little challenging planning a river journey with five classes of Year 10s during what the Bureau of Metrology is saying was the “highest rainfall for any month since records began in 1900 (not just the wettest October).” However, it is lucky the Outdoor Education teachers and students love a little adversity as they understand the reward that is often at the other end. During September the Murray River levels at Tocumwal were being closely watched by Henry Collins (OES staff member) and it was decided that we’d better start planning an alternative program as the flow rates and height were at levels that would make it too dangerous. The decision was made to do a reconnaissance of the Goulburn over the September holidays, and once Henry and Darcy Pearson (OES staff member) arrived they realised that this too was going to be too dangerous with high flow rates and Eildon at capacity. The faculty started to think about rivers in Victoria that wouldn’t be impacted and thanks to some collaboration and outdoor knowledge, it was decided that we would head down to one of the only rivers in Victoria that wasn’t impacted by the current extreme rainfall. The lower glenelG!

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

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! 😊
