Ethics Olympiad

On Wednesday, 26 November, five Year 9 students took part in the Middle Years Ethics Olympiad. In response to a topical provocation, students collaborated in critical thinking and rigorous discussion with competing schools – visible learning at its best! We congratulate these students on their capacity to think creatively and speak persuasively, particularly in an online environment. Thanks is extended to Marianne De Luise, Learning Diversity Coach and Melanie McKenzie, Learning Support Officer for providing this opportunity to our students. Well done to the following Year 9 students who represented Siena College with great distinction: Mia Fenton, Evie Goodale, Amali Hawkins, Angelina Rodos, Carly Walsh.

VCE Year concludes

We congratulate all Yr 11 students who this week complete their Year 11 academic year. This has included a final fortnight of Year 11 exams and the commencement of their Year 12 studies in the Headstart program. I commend all students on their engagement in this final week. They are well placed to now enjoy a well earned rest in readiness for 2021. My thanks to staff who have supported all students at such a busy time of the year: continuing classes during a peak period of assessments, marking and feedback, many of whom have still been supporting Year 12 students in exam preparations, given a later schedule this year. The commitment of both students and staff to ‘finishing well’ is very evident.
