From Our School Leadership Team,

The end of the 2017 school year is upon us. Looking back over the whole year we can celebrate the successes of our students, acknowledge the passionate work of our teaching staff and the support staff, the hard work of the Parent Committee, the guidance of the School Council and the wonderful support we enjoy from the Caulfield Junior College community.

 

On my behalf I would like to extend to all our families, the students, staff and to the wider community all the very best for the Christmas and holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.

 

My time at CJC has been brief, however we have now settled into the school’s routines, I understand how the structure of the school operates and we are making the necessary adjustments and decisions for the 2018 school year to commence smoothly on Thursday February 1st 2018.

 

We have many planned projects, updates and maintenance works to be completed over the holiday period.

 

Our staffing has been completed for the new school year and would like to welcome;

 

Ms. Tamara Thompson                       Music

Ms. Natalie Brown                              Additional Assistance

Mr. Nick Wood                                    5/6 B

Ms. Leslie Bokobza                            Prep Assistant

 

We also farewell those staff members who are changing their work or direction for the coming year.

Our greatest of thanks and our best wishes are extended to;

Amy Harris, Emily Ding, Rachel Drew, Katherine Keily (Family Leave), Joel Gillie and Nigel Mouncer.

 

Earlier this week Nigel informed us he was taking on a new role at another school and wouldn’t be part of the coming years work. Fortunately, we have been able to secure an experienced senior school replacement, Nick Wood from a local school.

 

The many class breakfasts and parties over the last few days have been a great opportunity for our families to celebrate the exciting work that has been undertaken in our learning spaces. Thank you for your support and engagement with our staff and the wider community.

 

Our Melbourne Stars visit yesterday was huge success with many students enjoying the activities and the professional engagement of the staff and players. These opportunities add to the richness of school life and we look forward to watching the teams progress over the summer. (Especially our very own Ms. Gemma Triscari.)
