On Thursday 4 May we held a most successful Open Night for prospective students and parents, with over 600 visitors to see the whole school in action. The success of such events is testament to our strong sense of community where staff, students and parent representatives from our College Council all played important roles. The level of support and enthusiasm from everyone involved was extremely positive and affirming. My sincere thanks to Mr Simon Cummins, Acting Assistant Principal, who was the main organiser, supported by Catherine Boulton in the office. I would also like to thank all staff for their attendance out of school hours and for organising some terrific displays and highly engaging interactive workshops; to all the students who acted as tour guides or assisted with the interactive workshops, they were so proud to showcase their school; and to the parent representatives from College Council, who were very enthusiastic and proud to speak about Mordialloc College to prospective parents.
A special thanks to our student speakers in the formal presentation part of the evening. They all did an outstanding job articulating what it means to them to be a student at Mordialloc College. Congratulations to Amelia Davidson and Jeremy Thai-Chan, speaking in their capacity as School Captains; and Alley Worner, Charlotte Ellem and Owen Norton representing Year 7, and speaking so confidently about their experiences to date. Please see the feedback summary page containing lots of positive comments from prospective parents:
