It has been a hectic term with many successes to celebrate along the way. The College started the term with a whole school professional learning day focusing on the Teaching and Learning in line with the College Strategic Plan. The teams continued to work on the guaranteed and viable curriculum, building the capacity of the staff and students in their practices. This has been revisited throughout the term with the Professional Learning Teams continue to use current data to cater for all learning needs and prepare for the 2024 academic year. 

There have been many camps go out throughout the term including Central Australia, Outdoor Ed, and Performing Arts camp. These are fabulous experiences that further develop student’s social skills, independence, relationship with their peers, enables them to challenge themselves, along with boosting their physical and emotional wellbeing.  

The College production, High School Musical was an outstanding show, with the cast and crew presenting several performances to a full house at Karralyka. This was an excellent opportunity to showcase our theatrical and musical talents to the wider community.  To further add to this experience, we invited 500 local primary school students who attended the matinee being one of the show’s highlights. The Performing Arts didn’t stop there, with the Winter Concert being held in the MPR to an enthusiastic audience for music goers. This concert saw Rolling Hills Primary Schools students and our very own Year 7 ensembles perform for the first time. Congratulations to the whole Performing Arts team for another success term. 

We celebrated the milestone for our Year 7 students with 100 days at Mooroolbark College with a mix of activities in the areas of Literacy, Numeracy, STEAM, Resilience presentation and Circus skills.

The College will be sharing with our community our student’s academic excellence on the 12th October at the annual Night of Excellence, where our year 7 to 10 students have been invited to show their work to their families.
