Welcome to the 2019 School Year
I am delighted to be in a position to report on an effective start to 2019, and to welcome all members of the Strathmore Secondary College school community to a new year.
This year in particular has a great deal in store. The school upgrade is in full swing: demolition is complete and all is in readiness for construction. Students’ well-being has been at the forefront of our considerations, a movement plan devised and construction no-go areas clearly defined and secured. A temporary cafeteria has been installed and provision made for staff parking during renovation.
Reflection on the achievements of 2018 is also a source of inspiration. The VCE results were a credit to the students, their teachers and families, and top scores of Joshua Singleton (99.4) and Harriet Harley (99.1) provided praiseworthy targets for the Year 12 students of 2019.
I am proud to inform the school community that Zoe Koulbanis has been invited to perform in the Top Class Drama and Theatre Studies concert at Playhouse, Melbourne Arts Centre in March. Top Class is a show case of 2018 highest achievers and exemplifies the most outstanding work in Unit 3 and 4 Drama and Theatre Studies.
The new school uniform has been pronounced “modern” and students are wearing it with pride.
I continue to have great faith in the dedication and effectiveness of our staff. I wish them, their students and the wider school community a successful and safe 2019.
