Welcome back to a Big Term 3!

A very warm welcome back to all our students and their families. I hope everyone had a lovely break in preparation for a musical term!

Term 3 Update

Please note that I will be on reduced hours this term to support my return to good health. Ms Amy Tinetti and Ms Casey Gould will continue to be Acting Principal and Acting Assistant Principal on Mondays whilst I am on leave.

2024 Prep Enrolments are now due

Please note that I will be sending letters of offer for Prep 2024 this week. If your child is turning five by April next year and you have not enrolled, I urge you to do so as soon as possible so that you receive all relevant transition information.

Stay warm!

Curriculum Day learning for MVPS staff

Yesterday our staff took part in professional learning with Kristy Lang who is our Respectful Relationships Project Leader from the Department of Education. Some of you may be wondering what Respectful Relationships are. As educators we share a common purpose – to provide our students with an education that gives each child the best start to a happy, healthy and prosperous life. Victoria’s Respectful Relationships initiative supports school leaders, educators and our school communities to promote and model respect and equality – and to teach our children how to build healthy relationships, resilience and confidence. The Royal Commission into Family Violence identified the critical role that schools have in creating a culture of respect to change the story of family violence for future generations. In 2016, respectful relationships education became a core component of the Victorian Curriculum from Prep to Year 12, and is being taught in all government and Catholic schools and many independent schools. This approach recognises that schools are a workplace, a community hub and a place of learning. Everyone involved in our school communities deserve to be respected, valued and treated equally. We know that changes in attitudes and behaviours can be achieved when positive attitudes, behaviours and gender equality are lived across the school community, and when classroom learning is reinforced by what is modelled in our school community. Taking a whole-school approach is about embedding a culture of respect and equality across our entire school community, from our classrooms to staffrooms, sporting fields, fetes and social events. This approach leads to positive impacts on students’ academic outcomes, their mental health, classroom behaviour, and relationships between teachers and students. Together, we can lead the way in saying yes to respect and equality, and creating genuine and lasting change so that every child has the opportunity to achieve their full potential. We will be sharing further information on Respectful Relationships with our community soon.

Staff also had CPR training, which is mandatory training for all staff annually.

Term 3 is going to be another great term of learning and exciting opportunities for our students, staff and community!
