Principal's Report - 28th October
Written exams commence on Wednesday, with a three and a quarter hour English exam up first. Good Luck to all of the VCE students as this crucial period begins. Students are welcome to come into school to see their teachers regarding their revision and exams and both students and parents are encouraged to contact Mrs Kuhnell should they have any wellbeing issues.
VET induction day is also on this Wednesday. Many DMSC students will be having a 'taster day' at various providers in and around Horsham. We have students interested in a wide range of VET programs and we will of course be continuing to deliver VET Hospitality and Building and Construction here at school in 2015.
DMSC hosted a FREEZA event last Friday evening in the school hall. These events provide a wonderful opportunity for our students to participate in a fun activity in their local town. Thanks to Moira Nunn and the staff who volunteered to supervise the event.
Behaviour on the bus
A considerable percentage of our students travel to school by bus. For the most part, the behaviour of students whilst on the bus is excellent, however, there have been reports of occasions where students are not behaving appropriately and are not following instructions when given. Please remind your child(ren) of the behaviour expectations when travelling on a school bus and explain to them the potential safety risks that arise when a driver becomes distracted. For students who cannot conduct themselves in an acceptable manner, they may lose their right to travel on the bus.
Congratulations to Mrs Walsgott
This Sunday, Mrs Jeannette Walsgott will receive her 40 Year Service Award from the DEECD - or Education Department of Victoria as it was previously known. This is a wonderful accomplishment and one that is not often achieved. Mrs Walsgott commenced her teaching career after studying at Monash University; moving to Dimboola for a number of years before taking up a position at Terang High School. She then taught at Mortlake High School, returning to Dimboola High School in 1979. Mrs Walsgott has been at Dimboola Memorial Secondary College ever since, only taking time off for parental leave and some long service leave. I am sure there are many in the community who have been fortunate enough to have had her for a Home Economics or Health teacher and many staff who have valued her collegiality. On behalf of the entire school community, I would like to congratulate Mrs Walsgott on this milestone achievement.
