Principal’s Report

I Welcome back all students and staff to the start of Term 3. I hope that everyone has had a very relaxing break. In particular I welcome Mr Brian Chiha who joins our Mathematics Department and wish him well as he embarks on his journey as a member of our learning community.  Mr Chiha will take on Mr Raymond Chan’s classes as a result of Mr Chan’s retirement.

I also welcome exchange students Florence Decerf from Belgium who will remain at our school for a period of 8 weeks and Nicolo Notargiacomo who will remain with us for the whole of Semester 2. I wish both students the very best with their experience and I take this opportunity to thank their host families, the Gerardsons and the Gower-Tibbets respectively, for their willingness to provide this opportunity and for their hospitality.

Student Achievement

I am certain that our students were involved in many out of school programs and experiences over the term break. I do want to congratulate Ellis Evans (Year 10, Everard House), Louise Alford (Year 11, Everard House), Lucy Boyes (Year 11, Everard House) and Daniel Notting (Year 11, Everard House), all of whom spent a good portion of their break at the AIS playing Volleyball at the National Titles. This showed a great commitment as well as being a fantastic achievement.  I wish all the students the very best as they continue to engage with the sport at the elite level.

VET Hospitality:

I congratulate all the VET Hospitality students and their teacher, Diana Makris, and support person Ally Bailey for the wonderful dinner that they presented to their families and friends on Tuesday, 25 June.

Ms Fran Mullins, Mr Tim Natoli and I felt very privileged to have been invited to attend the dinner. We were asked to savour all the dishes that the students had prepared and to provide feedback to the students at the end of the evening.  I have to say that I have never been to anything like it. It was like being a guest judge on Masterchef.

Whilst all the other guests were privy to one menu (that was developed by their child’s group), Fran, Tim and I had a number of entrees presented to us as well as a number of main meals and a number of desserts: all delicious!

The students were phenomenal in that they firstly planned their menu, executed all the preparation for it including the shopping lists, created a range of fabulous dishes, transformed the Year 12 Study Centre into a very convincing restaurant and then provided a great front of house service.

It was great to see just how much these young people have learnt in such a short time. The three of us were amazed, as were the other guests.

This is an outstanding achievement and once again I congratulate everyone that was involved. I am now looking forward to the next one!

Year 7 Expo:

Congratulations to all the Year 7 students and their Integrated Studies teachers for a fantastic Expo Night on Thursday, 20 June. The students were all well prepared to show off their learning to their families and friends and they did this in an admirable way. The preparation that went into the Expo spanned over the semester and it was great to see the students standing tall and proud of their achievements to date. I also thank all the parents, siblings and friends that attended the Expo. This showed real support for our young people and it was great to hear all the positive feedback that was provided to the students, the staff and the school on that evening. The students have already begun their next program of study and this will be supported by their “City Experience” in August.

A great evening and a great effort!

Year 10 Course Counselling:

Following on from the VCE, Enhancement and VCAL Information Evenings that took place at the end of last term, this week all Year 10 students will be involved in course counselling sessions to support them in their subject selection for their senior school years. Each student will participate in an interview with a staff member who will take them through the process. The aim of this is to give our students the opportunity to ask questions about the process, to ensure that they have followed through all the relevant steps and that they are well prepared and informed prior to making decisions about their final subject/course selection for Senior School. I take this opportunity to thank Mrs Anna Panas, the Senior School team and Mr Ross Pringle for their organisation and commitment to making this process as smooth as possible for our students.

Assistant Principal’s Report

School Emergency Response Practice

During the last week of Term 2 we conducted an Emergency Response practice. This involved a recall lockdown of the entire school during recess; getting all of the staff and students in from the school yard and locked in classrooms and offices. This was a huge success and all members of the school community responded promptly and appropriately allowing the school to be completely locked down in less than 4 minutes. Following the lockdown we evacuated the school to the front oval and again this was a success. 

The school’s Occupational Health and Safety Committee has been collecting information and feedback from staff and students and will work in conjunction with the schools Emergency Management Consultants, EMQ, to refine our processes before the next practice.

First Aid – Students with Medical Action Plans

A reminder to families to ensure that they are providing the school with copies of action plans for students with medical conditions. This needs to occur when the student first enrols at the school or at any time when there is a change to their medical condition.

We will soon be contacting all families of students who currently have a Medical Action Plan requesting updates. Please contact Michelle Ford in First Aid to discuss changes or updates to your child’s medical condition.

Careers

Year 9 Work Experience:

Monday 2 December – Friday 13 December

Although it is a long way off, why not think about placements now for December?

Have a think about how far you are willing to travel and whether you would like one or two employers for this period. Forms are available from outside the Careers Office (next to Drama) and need to be fully completed before returning to the Careers Office. You do not need to organise the Principal’s signature as this is done once the form has been checked and approved by Mr Pringle. Good luck and get in early to avoid the rush!

Wellbeing

Student Wellbeing Programs – Term 2

Students at Eltham High School benefit from our Student Support Worker, Eva Natsis, providing specially designed programs for our students throughout the year. These programs are aimed at identified social and emotional needs of our students. The programs work to increase connectedness and belonging to the school and broader community. Students are selected and self-nominate depending on the purpose and scope of the program. Each program is designed to meet a clearly identified need.

The following is a brief outline of programs that ran in Term 1 and 2 as well as some information on new programs running in Term 3:

Grey Horse – Growth and Learning:

Last term nine Year 7 students participated in the ‘Equine Therapy Program’ aimed to increase the confidence, social capability and leadership skills of students in a supportive environment. The program took place in Smiths Gully at Grey Horse Growth and Learning under the supervision of a highly competent Equine Therapist, Dr Maggie Broom. Students interacted with the horses, and learnt about their own behaviours in relation to team work with each other, reflecting on their experience in the arena and observing animal behaviour. The program was offered to students from Eltham High School after the success of previous (funded) programs. Maggie Broom successfully applied through Nillumbik Council for further funding to support a continued partnership and opportunity for students.  Feedback from students who participated was extremely positive.  We are hoping for further funding to enable us to continue the partnership and take another group of students in Term 4.

Girls Enrichment Program - Year 9:

This program is aimed at enriching the personal development of young women in a supportive environment that encourages open dialogue, reflection and teaching girls to become empathetic. Last term, we explored various topics and issues that were important to the girls. The girls appreciated the opportunity to share personal experiences, and learn goal setting and problem solving skills relevant to common dilemmas. . This term we will be exploring personal significance and meaning for girls through a range of workshops. There was positive feedback from all students in that they felt the group encouraged them to grow, to think and learn.

Girls Fitness Challenge:

A small group of girls in the Middle School have been involved in a weekly fitness challenge at the Eltham Leisure Centre, offered and funded through the YMCA’s ‘Open Doors Program’. Under the supervision and direction of a personal trainer and the support of youth workers, the girls are challenged to develop their physical fitness in a supportive environment, all the while making new friends, (girls from Montmorency SC and St Helena SC also participate). This program will continue into Term 3 and Term 4, provided we have enough participants. The program is offered to students whose family may not be able to afford a gym membership, girls who may feel self- conscious or lacking in self-esteem, or at risk of disengagement from school.  If you believe your daughter would benefit from the program, please contact Eva Natsis.

Drum Beat:

Last term, we had the privilege and honour of working with two highly competent practitioners from the Shire of Nillumbik (a youth worker and an occupational therapist) who offered a 10 week program to our students called ‘Drum Beat’. This program was designed to offer students the opportunity to participate in a drumming circle with the intention of working as a team to collaborate on drumming improvisations. It also offered students the opportunity to talk about their values and discuss the importance of working as a team to achieve desired goals. We had a small group participate last term and hope that more students indicate their interest in future drumming sessions.

Peer Mentoring:

Another successful term for our Peer Mentor Program. We have at least 40 students participating either as a mentor or mentee. The Year 10 mentors have received ongoing support, training and assistance in providing guidance, care and homework help to their mentoree. The twenty Year 7 mentoree students have enjoyed and appreciated meeting and getting to know an older student whom they catch up with for a period either weekly or fortnightly. This program has helped students make the sometimes difficult transition from primary to secondary school. The older students also learn support and social skills. The student mentors were invited to attend an excursion to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre to broaden their perspectives and learn about the issues affecting asylum seekers. We have a small groundswell of students who, in response to their experience, have demonstrated leadership in organising some fund raising for this worthy cause.

New Programs on Offer This Term:

Study 4 Change:

‘Study 4 Change’ is a program geared towards teaching students the values associated with ethics and social justice. It provides students with skills, passion and opportunity to become globally aware participants, by working towards a fund raising project and developing an online, interactive campaign on a social justice issue. It is presented by Justin Dickinson from ‘The Big Umbrella’. This is a 10 week pilot program running every Wednesday throughout Term 3. If you would like to register your interest to be involved, please see Eva in Student Services, or contact her by email at: nas@elthamhs.vic.edu.au.

“Respect Me, Don’t Sext Me”:

The purpose of this program is to educate boys in Year 9 about appropriate and ethical use of technology, particularly in relation to the widespread use of social media, and illicit and explicit use of photographs captured and sent to people via their mobile phones. Students will learn what sexting is; why people sext; the legal issues; possible consequences and what to do. The activities are designed to encourage open dialogue around the issues of sexting and assist boys to develop appropriate boundaries around the use of mobile phones/social media. This program will operate as part of the Year 9 Health and PE Program. For more information go to http://www.secasa.com.au/assets/Sexting/Sexting-infosheet-parents-v7.pdf
