While it's hard to believe that we are already in the second half of the year, we are excited for this semester and everything that is to come. As always, we know that our students will make us proud as they continue to uphold our college values and excel.
It was clear from witnessing our 2016 Production of Legally Blonde unfold on stage that we have an amazing group of students - each with their own unique talents and skills. Each year, it is so exciting to watch our students grow and make memories that will stay with them long after they leave our school.
Plans are currently underway to organisse a trip for 20-30 students to Noumea, New Caledonia. The group of students attending will be made up of students from Eaglehawk Secondary College, Crusoe College and Weeroona Secondary College. The departure date will be the 25th of November, 2017. If you would like more information about the trip, you can download an Expression of Interest form here.

- 1st September - Senior Sport
- 6th September - Year 8 Camp (Lester/Walker Students)
- 13th September - Year 8 Camp (Grieve/Dowding Students)

NAPLAN reports and data for 2016 have recently arrived in the College. They will be mailed to parents and students on Monday 29th August and should arrive in homes soon after. NAPLAN provides one assessment of a student's progress over a two year period, many other assessments and judgements are made at a school level during each year. If you have concerns regarding the report please make contact with your child's Teacher Advisor or teacher for Maths or English. If your child participated in NAPLAN but failed to receive a report in a reasonable time please contact our general office.
