As staff and students return to school over the past two weeks, I am reminded of the generosity, resilience on good will of all members of our College Community. The staff and students have worked so incredibly hard to make Remote Learning work so effectively demonstrating the College values of resilience, respect, endeavour and compassion. As a result, the transition back to traditional schooling has been smooth, the learning has continued, and we will be set for a fresh start in Term 3.

I wish to acknowledge the Year 10 and 11 students for their dedication and work completing their exams during remote and flexible learning.  Unfortunately, due to the lock down the Year 12 Social was postponed.  I’m pleased to report that this has been rescheduled for July. 

I would also like to thank the parents and carers of our Mooroolbark College students for their support of learning during our experience of remote and flexible learning. Education should always be a partnership between students, teachers and parents and during this time of remote learning we needed this partnership even more.

Prior to commencing remote and flexible learning our Mooroolbark College Parents Association ran a Bunnings BBQ at Chirnside Park.  Thank you to all the parents who helped and volunteered to make this an outstanding success.

We are looking forward to the start of Term 3 returning on Monday 12th July. Term 3 is an exciting term at Mooroolbark College.  It is also an extremely busy term with the College production in August and course counselling and subject selection in July and August for students going into Years 9, 10, 11 and 12 in 2022.  Students in Year 11 will undertake the Debutante Ball in August and will begin rehearsals in July shortly after we return.  Year 7 and 8 students will all experience new subjects with the rotation of Arts and Technology subjects.  For our Year 12 students, this is the term where their focus needs to be on ensuring they are in a place to achieve their best later in the year.

Again, thank you for your continued support of teaching and learning at Mooroolbark College.
