From The Deputy
With Jess Batey
We have now passed the half-way mark of the term.
I’d like to acknowledge the work being done by our staff and students in the first half of term two. Recently, we sent a group of Year 8 Indigenous students to the Yallarm STEM Camp at Boyne Island Environmental Education Centre. The feedback that we received was that our students were eager, enthusiastic, passionate, and they were keen to learn about and share their own Indigenous identity. We’re so proud of this group of kids and the way they represented our school. We pass our thanks onto the team at BIEEC for facilitating this experience for our students.
Earlier this week, we held a full school parade, in which our Guidance Officers presented information in relation to Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In addition to this parade, our Interact Club has worked hard on a display outside the library, representing Toolooa’s response to the theme of #unmuteyourself. This is such a sensitive and important topic, and our team will continue to work with students, even beyond this month, to educate and support our students. After all, they are the next generation of adults.
