Principal’s Update

Dear Families, Students and Community Members,

 

Leadership Induction Whole School Assembly

Next Tuesday, March 8, we will be formally recognising our students who have been successful in achieving a leadership position for this year, within our new leadership structure – the Mordialloc College Student Council. At this stage, it looks like we will need to conduct this whole school assembly remotely from our Performing Arts Centre with all classes viewing via Google Meet, along with parents who are able to attend online. Mr Tim Richardson MP, Member for Mordialloc, and Mr Mark Dreyfus, MP, Federal Member for Isaacs will be in attendance to make a speech and join with me to present the leadership badges and certificates.  Mr Simon Cummins, Director of Student Engagement, will lead the assembly.

Our new leadership structure is set up to provide opportunities for authentic student voice and agency across six student led sub-committees including: Curriculum, Wellbeing and Community, Facilities and Environment, The Arts, Sport, Publicity and Fundraising. This new structure still includes our traditional School Captains and Middle School Captains. We have Year 12 captains for each sub-committee and then House Captains at each year level selecting the sub-committee they would like to join. I congratulate all students who were prepared to nominate and go through the selection process during Term 4 last year, with Year 7s having this opportunity during the first half of this term and willbe finalised this week.

 

The College community acknowledges the crucial role that leadership at every level throughout the school plays in continuing to provide a forum for student voice and agency and providing opportunities for student led initiatives; and in inspiring pride in the College and in reinforcing the importance of setting high expectations in everything we do.
