Middle School Report

October 28, 2021

by Mr Michael Busscher, Director of the Middle School 

Just a reminder to all Year 9 families that this term will be a very busy one, as the boys continue their journey towards completing their education in the Middle School. Again, I remind everyone that the Grampians Camp set for next week following the Melbourne Cup long weekend has been cancelled.

Some other major dates of note for the Middle School students include: The Year 9 Examination period starting Monday, November 29 until Friday, December 3 which will be the final day in Year 9 for your son. This day will include our Middle School Awards Ceremony. The 2021 Semester 2 Examination Timetable will be developed in time for the next Crest.

To continue my theme of final Examination preparation can I suggest the following:

Firstly, boys’, YOU must accept full responsibility for the preparation YOU must complete towards YOUR final Examinations. This preparation must begin in full earnest immediately. YOU must commit yourself to an increased level of effort and undivided dedication in every attempt to, not only improve upon YOUR Semester 1 results but also set a clear goal of achieving YOUR personal best. This can be achieved when you:

•Complete all set homework nightly.

•Synthesise class notes and complete any extension questions.

•Never waste time whilst in class or at home completing tasks.

•Keep up to date with all class work by setting completion deadlines for these activities.

•Follow your teacher’s directions explicitly and personally see your teachers for extra assistance regularly.


KNOWLEDGE is POWER and therefore Middle School SUCCESS is very POWERFUL!

As always I hope that all of our boys achieve the success they are busily working towards throughout this last term in the Middle School.
