Director's Report

Dear Carranballac College community members,

Welcome to our last newsletter for this term.  Thankyou for being 'E' connected and please take the time to share with others the benefits of being 'E' connected.

I would like to pass on my thanks to our staff, students and families for their contributions to the College this term. There have been so many magic moments and outcomes. Well done to all.

We have two SIGNIFICANT events happening in the next two weeks and we are encouraging families to get involved. 

The BATTLE of the BANDS  🎼🎸 is coming to Carranballac College this Friday and will be taking place all day in the Peter K Kearney Performing Arts Centre at Boardwalk School. Parents are most welcome but would need to check in with Mr Montgomery as to the best time to attend please.

CELEBRATING DIVERSITY DAY πŸ˜€ takes place on Wednesday 28th June; with the 'back up day' being the 29th, should the weather be unsuitable on the Wednesday. This is a first for Carranballac with both campuses coming together at Boardwalk for a wide range of inclusive activities in order to celebrate the diversity that is the Carranballac community. Please refer to our many 'E' communications on the program for the day. I look forward to seeing a good number of parents attending - please sign in at the front office on the day at Boardwalk.

PARENT FORUM: On Thursday 3rd August we will be inviting all members of our community to participate in a Parent/Community forum in the Performing Arts Centre at Boardwalk. The forum will commence at 6.00 pm, conclude at 7.30pm followed by a light supper and a cuppa in the staff room until 8pm. We will be sharing progress on the College Review and also facilitating a Q and A session. This is a great opportunity for you to connect with the College so please place the date on your fridge.

ASSEMBLIES: After extensive consultation with all sectors in the community I have received overwhelming support to shift ASSEMBLIES from Monday mornings to Friday afternoons. Both campuses will hold full school assemblies on the Friday afternoon in the first week back of Term 3. They will commence at 2.15 and conclude at 2.45. From week two of the term the assemblies will split into TWO assemblies with separate Secondary Years (7, 8 & 9) and Primary Years (Foundation to Year 6). We will inform our community of where these will be located in the first newsletter of Term 3.
Thankyou to everyone for your valued participation in providing feedback.


Have a great fortnight and wonderful break with your families.
