Return to School
Dear Parents & Carers,
Thank you for your support during the period of remote and flexible learning. We are looking forward to welcoming students back to on-site learning.
You will be aware that students studying VCE subjects are returning to on-site learning from Tuesday 26th May. Students in 7 - 10 will return on Tuesday 9th June. All school staff will be working from the school campus from Tuesday 26th May. This is a challenging time for us all, and we are working to make the transition back to school on-site learning smooth and positive for all involved.
Full information is available on your Compass News feed.
Year 8 & 9 Artist in Residence
In Term 1, students responded to a number of practical artistic challenges. In order to think like artists, they were asked to use art materials, tools and techniques in more unusual ways. This included using their “wrong” hand to draw a portrait in ink on wet paper and apply mixed media to it, as well as creating abstract designs in ink, then selecting various cutting and weaving techniques to make the work slightly 3D.
Despite being unable to work with a Mosaic artist in Term 2 as planned, students studied mosaic designs and techniques anyway. Hopefully, the theory will successfully translate into the mosaic-flowerpots that they have been asked to produce during remote-learning. Kits were put together for students to collect from school or they could provide their own materials. Can’t wait to see the results!

Year 9 Isolation Poetry
Year 9 students are currently studying poetry and have written some awesome Haiku poetry about remote learning.
Haiku poetry is a form of Japanese poetry that are very small and designed to capture a moment in time.
They are only three lines; the first and third lines have five syllables, whereas the second has seven.
