What is National Sorry Day?

National Sorry Day is an Australia-wide observance held on May 26 each year. National Sorry Day gives everyone the chance to come together and share steps towards healing for those of the Stolen Generation, their families and communities and a day to acknowledge the past and renew the fight to never allow this to happen again.

The Principals Reading Challenge starts today!

The Principal’s Reading Challenge is an inter-house reading competition taking place this term between weeks 4 – 7. Home Room students are encouraged to record the amount of time they have spent reading throughout each week and every Friday a tally will be made of the combined Home Room reading times. We are looking for the winning Home Room and the Best Reader in the House – the student in the house who spent the most time reading throughout the challenge. The winning Home Room and Best Reader in the House will be announced in Week 8 and prizes awarded, including the Home Room Pizza Party!

Visit the iCentre and borrow up a storm - novels, poetry, graphic novels, and short stories all add to your tally (textbooks not included) and start reading!

For the last five years, we have hosted an International Women’s Day Breakfast. This has been part of our Read Like a Girl project and offers the community an opportunity to engage in great stories by women, inspired by women, or about women.

Due to COVID and the disrupted start to the year, the breakfast has not been possible in 2022. As a substitute, we have created a video featuring the stories of three women. Two women are past students of the college: Dr Jessica Madsen – General Practitioner and medical practice owner and Louise Crawford - recent Mayor of the City of Port Phillip, and Australian film & television actress. The third is Ali France – journalist, world champion para-athlete, disability advocate, and politician.

We invite you to watch and share the video with a significant woman/women in your life.

Happy International Women's Day

Thanks so much Ms Lihou for lending a hand in the iCentre this morning. Ms Bonavia enjoyed working with you and showing you the ropes during your quick library lesson!

Our school community is so fantastic and supportive that when the call went out for help this morning Ms Lihou answered the call. Covid has made everyone realise even more how we’re all in this together.

Picture books are just for kids, right? Wrong! Picture books are filled with uplifting stories, interesting facts, and brilliant illustrations. The iCentre has a wide range of wonderful non-fiction picture books that explore a huge variety of topics

Currently, we are featuring these books in a display, located near the printer (something for you to read while you wait in line), and it’s an interactive display using QR codes that link to information about the author, topics, and other interesting videos related to some of these great books! There’s sure to be something for everyone.

Today is Safer Internet Day, it’s a good reminder to stop and have a think about your online presence. Think before you post, think before you comment and treat others the way you would want to be treated. Remember what you post online really does stay online forever.

If you’re not feeling good after scrolling or reading through posts, maybe its time for an audit of what you’re looking at? Give the flick to the pages that don’t make you feel good about yourself. And, if you’re being bullied or harassed online, block, report , don’t engage BUT ALSO reach out to someone you trust for a debrief and help if you need it.
