Amended Message from The Principal

Message from The Principal

School Council Notice

The College Council requests all interested members of the community to nominate for the following two groups:

***Fund Raising Collective***

This group will coordinate, drive, promote and plan major fund raising events and in most cases, oversee their  implementation. Eg Spring Fair

This group will report back to school council regarding the general planning and direction, the outcomes of events and activities and liaise with the College Leadership to coordinate a whole school approach to fundraising.

The group will not be directly  involved with Thursday Markets and the SRC, however they will coordinate events like Spring Fair, Cake stall and sausage sizzle opportunities and school wide raffles etc.

Members of this group will not be required to participate in the actual fund raising activities conducted at the school, however they will provide much needed direction, advice  and coordination.  Formerly this group has operated as  the Spring Fair Team however their scope of responsibility has been widened to include other activities. Please indicate your willingness to be part of the group via email by 4pm, Monday, 11 May.


***Spring Fair  2014***

The long list of requests for funding from the 2014 Spring Fair funds will be processed over the coming weeks and an announcement will be made asap. We apologise for the long wait. A panel consisting of SC President (Michael Caver), SC Treasurer (Sherrian Poon), two parents, two teachers (one primary, one secondary) and a member of the SRC leadership team. The panel will be chaired by the principal. Parents are requested to nominate for the two parent positions. The process so far has called for requests and collated a summary of these requests into a table. The principal will liaise with the two SC representatives to decide which two parent representatives will be invited on to the panel.  The next stage will be for the panel to recommend to the School Council a priority listing. Finally, School Council will then use the panel’s advice to decide which  applications are the successful ones. Please indicate your willingness to be part of the group via email by 4pm, Monday, 11 May.


***Staff Changes***

Due to the unexpected resignation of our LOTE teacher Katie Cheng, effective this Friday, a shuffle of teachers and timetable cannot be avoided.

As a result of the short timeline and shortage of teachers in the LOTE area, the following changes will occur:

Jenny Zhang will assume all of Katie’s classes, including VCE, and maintain her current classes at the 5/6 levels.

Jenny’s classes in the P-4 will be replaced by Chaney Ke effective next Tuesday. I know Jenny will be missed in the lower primary school however she will assist with the coordination and support for the program in this area.

I welcome Chaney ke to our LOTE team and l am confident that she will utilise her experience to maintain the high standards set by Jenny. Chaney will also provide some EAL support in the lower primary school.

I apologise for the concern and disappointment this change may cause for some classes and students.


Kind Regards

Dale Perichon


Collingwood College P-12
