Student Wellbeing and Learning Centre 

Darrang and Baan Houses have moved into the new Student Wellbeing and Learning Centre – the new ‘heart of the school’. It has been exciting to see students using the space as a social area at lunchtimes and for quiet study with tutors during classes. It is also the new home of our Breakfast Club, which runs from Wednesday-Friday mornings at 8am. 

House Captains’ Message – Kindness  

The Darrang Senior Captains spoke at our recent General Assembly about the importance of being kind to one another. They shared memories of times when people had shown them kindness and compassion during their time at Mooroolbark College – for Steph, it was a new friend including her on the first day of Year 7, and TC shared a memory from a school excursion in Year 8. It was amazing to hear that these, seemingly small, acts of kindness had such a big impact on our school leaders after so many years. Their challenge to all members of our school community is to show kindness to others on a daily basis. 

Uniform Reminders 

As we approach the school holidays, this is a good opportunity to check that your child has the uniform items that they need for the remainder of the year, including black, polishable school shoes and plain white socks. If a situation arises where your child will be out of uniform, it is important that they bring a note from a parent/guardian to their Home Group Teacher or Cluster Co-ordinator to receive a uniform pass. More detailed information about uniform items can be found on the College website. Please contact your child’s Cluster Co-ordinator if there is a difficulty in obtaining uniform items – we are happy to help.  

On behalf of all four Houses, we hope you have an enjoyable holiday break. We are looking forward to an exciting Term 4.
