Congratulations to all our EAL students on getting through remote learning and the end of the term.

This time of year marks the end of the semester with reports soon to come out, as well as the beginning of a semester of learning. We asked some of our students what they would say to a new EAL student at Mooroolbark College. Much of this advice applies to everyone as we get ready for the holidays and a new term. 

Some exciting news from the EAL Team: 

We are very excited to announce that Mooroolbark College is setting up a homework club that is specifically designed to provide extra support to students who come from an ‘English as an Additional Language’ or refugee background. We are running the club in partnership with the Centre for Multicultural Youth (CMY), Migrant Information Centre (MIC) and Foundation House. We think this is an excellent opportunity for your child to get extra help with their schoolwork and for them to feel more supported and engaged with their education. Stay tuned for more information on the starting date and time. 

Finally, Ms Yi Jiang will be taking over the role of EAL Coordinator from next term. Charlie Chaturapornkul will be moving on from this role at the end of this term. We asked Ms Jiang to introduce herself to the EAL community in preparation for next term.
