Middle School Report

August 7, 2020

by Mr Michael Busscher, Director of the Middle School

I hope that everyone is now well and truly back into the swing of things in regards to our Remote and Flexible Learning mode of classroom delivery. As always we are looking towards another very positive term of school, despite this change in conditions. Though we have already had one experience of Remote and Flexible Learning it remains paramount that boys do significantly better this time around, as their results will have a huge bearing on their ability to successfully transition into the Senior School.

I appreciate that this is a very challenging time for all in the Middle School and your cooperation with our Remote and Flexible Learning program is very much appreciated.

Middle School staff will be available throughout the normal school day and you are asked to make contact directly with your son’s teacher if there are any concerns about your son’s wellbeing or learning program. If you do need help or additional support, please contact our Year Level Coordinators Mr Shane Hayes, Mr Sam Cue or myself.

Looking further ahead, our plans of the three Middle School Challenge Days Wednesday, September 16 to Friday, September 18, which were intended to replace some of our now cancelled Melbourne Experience will unfortunately become a “to be advised status” as will our Term 4 Camp to the Grampians which is planned for Wednesday, November 4 to Friday, November 6. We will have to wait and see what directives we are expected to follow from the Victorian Government.

During this difficult time, we must all take care to support one another.
