Eltham High School Art and Technology Exhibition

Friday, 8 November: 6.00pm – 8.30pm

and

Saturday, 9 November: 1.00pm – 3.00pm


Principal’s Report

Eltham High School Art and Technology Exhibition

The opening of the Eltham high School Art and Technology exhibition will take place on Friday, 8 November at 7:00 pm. The viewing of the exhibition will be between 6.00pm – 8.30pm on the same night, as well as between 1.00pm – 3.00pm on Saturday, 9 November. All of the Art Awards will be presented at the opening. The Wes Muir and Principal’s Acquisition prizes will also be announced (although these will not be presented until the Year 12 Valedictory Evening since these prizes are generally selected from Year 12 work).

I extend a personal Invitation to all members of our community to attend the Art and Technology Exhibition opening, and to view the show, which promises to be a fantastic display of our students’ talent across a number of areas of the Arts and Technology.

I congratulate all the Art and Technology staff for their ongoing commitment to, and support of, our young people and I thank them for their hard work in bringing this show together. I particularly wish to congratulate Ms Ute Leiner as the curator of the show and thank her for her ongoing input into the arts at Eltham High School.

I am sure that you will enjoy the show, so please do come along and join us in the experience.

Senior School Exams

The Year 12 exams are well on the way and students have been engaging with these in a positive way. On the few occasions that I was outside the examination room as students came out they were pleased with their exams. Of course, this is always relative to the effort that the individual has dedicated to the preparation for these assessments. Students have been diligent during their SWAT VAC in using the resources that the school has put at their disposal, including access to teachers and access to the Year 12 Study Centre. From speaking with the staff there are varying views across the range of exams already completed from a very good and fair paper to somewhat challenging and long. The proof will be in the pudding, as they say.

Year 11 Exams begin today and these will continue into the following week, during which Middle School exams will also begin and continue into the next week.

Current Year 11 and Year 10 students will begin an Orientation Program into Year 12 and 11, respectively, at the end of their examination period. The “Head Start” Program will allow students to begin their 2014 studies prior to the completion of 2013. Whilst it may not be possible to have the specific teachers that they will have next year, in all instances, every attempt will be made to accommodate this in order to provide a level of continuity with their studies. Regardless of this we believe that this will be beneficial to the students and their learning. I take this opportunity to thank the Senior Sub School Team for their organisation of the “Head Start” Program and all the staff for the preparation they have put into making this a very positive start for the Senior students.

Annual Lap-a-Thon

The annual Lap-a-Thon took place on Thursday, 17 October and it was great to see the number of students that participated this year, including a small number of past students. This year was a special year because the Swim Coach herself participated in the event, surpassing her target of 160 laps. Outside of this being a fun event it is also a major fundraiser for a worthy charity. This year the Lap-a-Thon was a resounding success raising funds to support the Nillumbik Christmas Wish Giving Tree.

I firstly want to congratulate all the participants; students, past students; coach and other community members that took part in the event. I also want to thank all the staff and volunteers that support the Swim Club every Thursday morning at 7:00 am at the Eltham Leisure Centre. This is a great commitment for all involved and the opportunity would not exist if it wasn’t for the goodwill of all of these people. The Lap-a-thon has now become a tradition for the Eltham High School Swim Club and one which continues to benefit both our local and wider communities. Well done to everyone!

Note of Condolences

I wish to extend our most sincere condolences to the Jenkin family on the recent passing of Jeanette. Our thoughts are with you all during this very difficult time.

2013 Mercury

Don’t miss out on your copy of the 2013 MERCURY!

Orders will be finalised on Friday, 15 November and will be mailed early 2014 to all families who have paid the ‘School Magazine’ voluntary charge on their family statements.

If you are not sure if you have paid, please check your current statement or contact accounts@elthamhs.vic.edu.au

Don't be confused, MERCURY is a record of the school year and is very different to the student ANTHOLOGY of writing. MERCURY includes the class photos, samples of artwork, stories of student achievements and Faculty adventures as well as photos and details from some of the major school events - Swimming and Athletic sports, Drama production, Arts festival, Outdoor Ed, Overseas trips etc.

In fact you can even become involved - if you have ideas about what should be included or can write a paragraph about a significant school event or have some good photos that show our students in action, then please email them to cla@elthamhs.vic.au. Get them in before the end of November!

The magazine serves as a great record of our school community's achievements. By being published at the beginning of the following year, it doesn't get lost in the Christmas rush and will hopefully inspire students, staff and parents to get involved in the New year in a multitude of ways.

Calling all students who are part of and care about our LGBTI community.

The annual pride march is a celebration of the Melbourne LGBTI community and our allies, and a great way to demonstrate our commitment to supporting gender and sexual diversity at EHS. 

Safe Schools Coalition Victoria will have a place in the parade where all students, staff and families from any schools in Victoria can join.  

I would love to have some student leadership on this, please contact me at school, in person or via email if you would like to be part of leading a group, and drumming up support for this event, holding the EHS banner high!

Next year the march will be held at 1pm on Sunday 2nd February in St Kilda, so we need to sort out plans before the end of term 4.
