Principals Report and Seasons Greetings

Term four is always a busy term with Seniors & Pathways Camps, exciting excursions and of course another very successful Graduation Night.

We continue to develop a Positive Behaviour Culture and Structured Teaching across the school, and this year have introduced the STAR / LINKS programs, which we will continue to roll out in 2018.

Next year we will continue to use Seasaw as a communication method with families, and Google Forms and Compass as methods of data collection and for communication and student reporting.

We have continued to work hard on our fundraising this year and have raised funds via the Scout Raffle, have received donations towards our Licola and Grantville camps and have received funding to purchase Playground Shelters and an Electric BBQ from the Lions Club and Cummins.

I would like to acknowledge the hard work of our staff who continue to provide our students with great programs and a stimulating learning environment. Special thanks must also go to the leadership and administration team who continue to provide outstanding support to all staff and families. Our school council also provide a great service in supporting the running of the school.

I would like to wish our school community a wonderful, safe holiday break and look forward to seeing everyone back at Monash SDS in 2018.
